Bermuda set for Barbados opener

Bermuda’s senior national cricketers will play the first of five matches on a tour of Barbados today.

The tourists are scheduled to play against an invitational team organised by ICC Regional Development Officer Wendell Coppin in a 50 over contest at a venue that could not be confirmed at press time.

The Island’s 13-man squad arrived in the Caribbean on Thursday night accompanied by interim national coach Arnold Manders, assistant coach Clevie Wade and manager Lionel Tannock.

While in Barbados the team will play three 50 over and two T20 matches all against invitational teams organised by Coppin who visited Bermuda last year.

The tour of Barbados is part of the senior national squad’s preparations for next month’s ICC Americas Division One T20 in Florida and April’s ICC World Cricket League (WCL) Division Three Championship to be held here.

Bermuda will be led by interim captain Rodney Trott who is standing in for Bailey’s Bay teammate Stephen Outerbridge who is unavailable for the tour through work commitments.

“Rodney is very capable of doing the job in Barbados,” interim national coach Manders told

The Royal Gazette prior to the team’s departure for Barbados. “He captained Bermuda at the Under-19 World Cup and has attended cricket academies all around the world.

“Rodney started playing at a very young age and has lots of experience.”

Early order batsman Treadwell Gibbons Jr and all rounder Jacobi Robinson are among the new faces in the squad for the current tour.

Earlier this week senior national squad cricketers took part in a three-day training exercise at Sea Breeze Oval conducted by ICC Americas High Performance Officer Andy Pick and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) spin bowling specialist coach Chris Brown.

Following today’s match the Island’s senior national squad will play another 50 over match tomorrow against an ICC invitational team.
