Game 3 v USA
Humid / Sticky

The coin fell our way and we elected to bat. We lost an early wicket before Beginner (33) and Potbury (82) got us rolling. We were 3/75 at the drinks break and the game was in the balance, but good performances from Farnum (55) and Kepple (38*) helped us to accelerate to end at 7/233 from our 50 overs.

USA made their way to 4/168 in the 41st over and with the comparison very even the game looked like it could go either way. Our bowlers then stepped up, as USA lost 5/1 including a hattrick to James on his way to 4 wickets. USA were bowled out for 183 in the 44th over.

A big win in a vital game for us has us in good form as we face Scotland in Game 4, in what is now a top-of-the-table clash.

Game 4 v Scotland
Humid / Crumbling

With the humid weather lingering longer than forecast, we lost the important toss and were asked to field. Scotland maintained a solid scoring rate and although none of their players made it to 50, all of their batsmen contributed as they made 226 before being bowled out in the 48th over. Rampersad took 4 wickets and James 3, continuing a good week from our fast bowlers.

We struggled to get in to the game with the bat, with Jeffers (40) and Best (24) the only batsmen to make it past 12 runs. We were bowled out for 142 in the 41st over.

With the big dent in our NRR, we head in to game 5 with only a slim chance of making the finals, needing a big win and West Indies to have a good game against Bangladesh also.

Game 5 v Netherlands
Hot / Slow

Apologies for the delay in getting this posted...

The toss went the Dutchies' way and they decided to bat and found themselves at 5/70 in the 19th over. Solid performances from their tail got them to 9/194 from their 50 overs. Boyce took his first Nat 5 wicket haul in what is probably his last game, he's been a solid performer for us throughout S47 and it was good to see him achieve a big haul of wickets.

Our chase never really got going, with only Persaud (46) and Farnum (47) going past 13 runs. In the end we fell 22 runs short.

Congratulations to Scotland who took out the final.

Thanks to managers for supplying their players to the 'Muda cause. :thumbsup

Season 48 One Day Div 2, Tour 1, Game 1
v USA
Windy / Uneven

USA won the toss and elected to bat, which looked like a good decision as they made their way to 2/82 from their first 20 overs. Rampersad then took 3 wickets in his second spell as USA fell to 8/117 before the tail showed good resistance to set a target of 151. Pertab was economical with 2/8, while Longmire also chipped in with 2 wickets as all of our bowlers contributed to the W column.

Liddelow held our innings together, ending with 82 not out and was our only batsman to score more than 17. We snuck home in the 42nd over by one wicket following a nail-biting final wicket stand of 16.

Great to start the season with a win, next up we play Kenya.

Game 2 v Kenya
Windy/Hard
Kenya won the toss and elected to field

We lost two quick wickets to be 2/8, before our batsmen consolidated to take us to a score of 6/290 from our 50 overs, which had us in the game even if it looked a little light on for RR. Beginner (86), Farmer (53*), Valentine (49), Persaud (48) and Peter (25*) all made good contributions.

We started poorly with the ball, with partnerships of 98 and then 131 for the first two wickets took the game away as we were unable to apply RR pressure to the Kenyans. Pertab (2/49) was the pick of the bowlers.

---
Game 3 v Bangladesh
Humid/Uneven
We won the toss and decided to bat

An opening stand of 58 had us looking good early, before we slumped to 5/98 with our middle order looking fragile apart from Kepple (63). 182 looked a decent score in the conditions, however again we had too few contributing with the bat and were bowled out in the 46th over.

Glasgow (2/31) was the best with the ball, however we struggled to take regular wickets and Bangladesh chased down the target in the 47th over.

---
Game 4 is against Scotland and we need to improve with both bat and ball to turn the tour around.

Thanks for supporting Bermuda :thumbsup

Still a big chance to promote if we win the last two and Kenya or Bangladesh trip over.

Game 4 v Scotland
Cloudy/Uneven
Scotland won the toss and elected to bat

Scotland made a good start to their innings, losing their first wicket at 47 and their second at 97, while maintaining a run rate of over 4.5 per over. At the 35 over mark they were 3/151 and looked set to launch in their final 15 overs, but our bowlers fought back, restricting them to a (still good) score of 9/237. Farmer, Rampersad, Longmire and Pertab all finished with 2 wickets.

Our chase didn't start well, losing a wicket from the second ball of the innings before building to 3/102 at drinks. Our 4th wicket stand of 85 (Jeffers/Camacho) and an unbroken partnership of 54 from 36 balls (Jeffers/Persaud) were outstanding as we made the target with 7 balls to spare. Jeffers' 100* was a fantastic captain's knock when the team really needed it and Camacho (37) and Longmire (26) made important contributions.

The second win of the tour sees us clear of the relegation zone, however promotion is now also out of reach.

Game 5 is against Netherlands, with both teams looking to bank some valuable WC rating points early in the campaign.

This is one of the more enjoyable threads to read in the forums and you obviously put a great deal of time into both updating it and running your Bermudan national team. Well done on your win over my Scottish lads on Thursday, it was tight but your middle order was too strong for us.
Good luck for the upcoming T20 tour and with both our teams stuck in the division 2 one day comp for the time being I look forward to crossing paths with your team again later in the season.

Thanks for dropping by Martymac, it's good to hear that people are reading (and enjoying) the updates! :thumbsup
Hopefully both sides can push for promotion next time around!
I still haven't had a chance to do the report for Game 5 yet!

Game 5 v Netherlands (belatedly)
Sunny/Green
Netherlands won the toss and decided to bat first

The Dutch made an excellent start and at 2/168 from 33 overs looked well ahead in the game. Some excellent bowling late in the innings restricted their acceleration, as we ended up bowling them out on the last ball of the innings for a still imposing day 5 score of 264. Pertab took 3 wickets, while Rampersad, Kepple and Legall each took 2.

A 75-run opening stand set a solid foundation before the Dutch fought back to have us 5/134 after 28 overs, still needing 131 from 132 balls with only 5 wickets in hand. Beginner (78) then showed his class as he partnered with Persaud for 76 and then Legall for 55 as we got home with 4 balls to spare.

A great way to finish the tour, however it was somewhat disappointing that we were a bit inconsistent as a team and couldn't push harder for promotion across the week.

Thanks to all the managers who provided players and/or supported the team :thumbsup

Very up and down tour that I followed closely.
The boys did step up in the last couple of games to make sure demotion was out of the equation so that was good to see.
T20 tour should be a cracker and I think it’s about time the players pulled there heads out and got out of Div 3.
Good luck boys, you’re all doing a great job, and I will continue to enjoy watching the Bermudan U20’s move back to the pointy end where they belong.
