BCB remain tight-lipped on Bermuda captaincy for World T20

Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) are still remaining tight-lipped on the availability of senior national team captain Stephen Outerbridge for November's World Twenty20 Qualifiers in Dubai.

The BCB has yet to respond to further queries surrounding Outerbridge's availability in an e-mail sent to President Lloyd Fray and copied to chief executive Neil Speight earlier today.

Reliable sources claim that Outerbridge is unable to make the trip because of work commitments.

It is understood that all-rounder Janeiro Tucker has agreed to captain Bermuda during the upcoming tournament in Dubai.

The BCB announced a training squad of 36 players last month which will eventually be trimmed down to 15.

Bermuda will be among the 16 ICC Associates vying for the six World Twenty20 up for grabs in the Middle East.

Bermuda have been pitted in Group B which also includes Scotland, Denmark, Holland, Afghanistan, Kenya, Nepal and Papua New Guinea. Group A consists of Ireland, Canada, UAE, Namibia, Hong Kong, Uganda, USA and Italy,

The senior national squad will play warm up matches against Italy and Canada before taking on Scotland in their opening World Twenty20 qualifying match on November 15.

Bermuda advanced to November's World Twenty20 Qualifiers after finishing runners-up at the ICC America Division T20 Championship in Florida in March.
