August 20, 2014

Hamilton, Bermuda, Monday, August 18 – USA started their campaign in the ICC U17 tournament with a 36 run victory over Bermuda at the National Sports Centre. Bermuda’s captain Alex Dore won the toss this morning and elected to field. This tactic initially was rewarded with good bowling and fielding. A great throw from Chare Smith to run out Sharma and a spectacular catch by Delray Rawlins off Cameron Jeffers left USA struggling at 50-4 and then 97-6. The USA team finally found a partnership (93) of substance between Kushai Ganji and Novendra Boodhoo which allowed them to post a total of 195 all out in the 48th over.

Bermuda’s innings suffered from the regular falling of wickets as all USA bowlers found success. Ndhusha Rao was the standout bowler, his right arm seam 4 wickets for 27 off his 7 overs. At 53-8 Bermuda were bolstered by an 80 run partnership between Chare Smith and Delray RawlinsDelray Rawlins completed his fifty and was last man out for a well-played 79 runs.

Tomorrow Canada commences their campaign playing USA at National Sports Centre at 10.30am. Bermuda will have a training session at Devonshire Recreation Club.
