The Bermuda Cricket Board has confirmed that the season will make a belated start on July 11, with the format restricted to Twenty20 at four venues.

St David’s County Cricket Club, St George’s Cricket Club, Somerset Bridge Recreation Club (White Hill Field) and Somerset Cricket Club will be the venues, and the season is scheduled to end on September 6.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, rules and regulations set out by the Government and the BCB will be enforced at the grounds before, during and after match play with a view to keeping players, officials and spectators as safe as possible.

These rules will be circulated on July 3.

Lloyd Smith, the BCB president, said: “We are excited to announce the commencement of the 2020 domestic league and wish to thank all clubs, the Ministry of Health, the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation, and other officials for their co-operation during this time, ensuring that we are able to move forward and operate using best practices as per the guidelines and requirements.”

The BCB also announced the final transfer list, with Bermuda players Allan Douglas Jr, Derrick Brangman and Macai Simmons prominent among the minimal activity.

Douglas has left St David’s to join Southampton Rangers, Brangman has departed Bailey’s Bay for St David’s and Simmons, the former St George’s Cup Match captain, leaves St David’s after one season to return to Wellington Oval.

The other notable moves feature St David’s, who have attracted veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Ricardo Brangman from Southampton and Warwick fast bowler Chare Smith.
