On the eve of Canada v Bermuda

Bermuda's Royal Gazette is reporting that the pitch at King City is looking very fast and fully grassed. The speed of the pitch seems to lend itself to Canada's good young pace bowlers, specifically Umar Bhatti and Henry Osinde who bowled wonderfully against Kenya. The groundskeeper is happy with the wicket, expecting it to allow pace, spin, and seam to be effective. Bermuda seem to be coming in with a similar strategy to the one Canada employed in the first Intercontinental Cup match - bat first, and bat for a long time.

The weather report is still great for the weekend, but there is a chance of showers on Monday and Tuesday (40% and 30% chance, respecitvely). Temperatures will be in the mid-20s throughout the weekend.

Watch this space for updates from at least the first two days, and hopefully something on Monday and Tuesday (I am still looking for someone who can make it up on those days to help me out). See you at the match!
