Bermuda to play USA in World T20 warm-ups

Bermuda's senior national cricket team will play USA in three warm-up matches in Florida next month as preparation for upcoming World Twenty20 Qualifiers in Dubai, The Royal Gazette understands.

Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) are expected to announce a squad of 15 players that will travel to Fort Lauderdale on October 18 to play their hosts in three T20 matches before returning on October 21.

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

The BCB announced a training squad of 30-plus players last month which is expected to be trimmed down to 15 in the near future.

Those vying for places on the team are currently being put through their paces by national coaching staff as many as four times weekly.

Senior squad members will be involved in two trials matches at the National Sports Centre (NSC) this Saturday and Sunday.

Malachi Jones is among those vying for a place in Bermuda's World Twenty20 squad
