Must-win match for Bermuda

The United States face a must-win match against Bermuda today in Canada in the Under-19s Americas World Cup qualifiers after the US went down to hosts Canada by five wickets yesterday.

Bad weather has severely disrupted the competition which, originally, was to see each team playing the others twice. However, the competition is now down to a single round robin and yesterday’s US-Canada was the first to be completed this week.

The US scored 158 all out and Canada reached 160 for five in reply to pick up a crucial victory.

Bermuda will hope for better fortunes today against the United States, knowing that victory will set up a winner-takes-all clash with Canada tomorrow in the final match. In their rained out match on Monday, United States scored 194 in 44.4 overs against Bermuda and had Bermuda in early trouble at 8-3 after 3.3 overs when rain stopped the match.

Two storms merged together in the Toronto area on Monday, dumping 126mm of rain in just over one hour. The result caused massive flooding in the city not seen since Hurricane Hazel some 60 years ago. Maple Leaf Cricket Club grounds took on the appearance of a lake. After much hard work by the grounds crew play was able to resume yesterday.
