Bermuda Announce Squads for Canada Tour

The squads to face Canada in the Intercontinental Cup match this weekend and to participate in the ICC Americas Division I Championship have been announced. Irving Romaine will remain the captain of the team for both competitions, and a strong squad has been named for each. Many of the players are coming off a multi-day warmup in the famous "Cup Match" between St. George's and Somerset Cricket Clubs in Bermuda. Of note is the inclusion of bowlers Saleem Mukuddem and Dwayne Leverock - men who have confounded Canadian batsmen in the past, most notably in a 2005 Intercontinental Cup match. Janeiro Tucker is also a danger for Canadian hopes, as he scored 123 runs in the second innings of last year's match in leading Bermuda to a tight victory.

  • The dates for all the Canada games are on the right side of this page. Canada does not play Bermuda at Ross Lord, the only Canada game there is against Cayman Island on August 22. The full schedule of matches can be found at www.canadiancricket.org.
