Bermuda lose three straight in T20 warm-ups
USA 138-7 (20 overs)
Bermuda 108 (19.4 overs)
Bermuda's top-order batsmen failed for the third straight match as the national team ended their three match practice tour of Fort Lauderdale ahead of next month's ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers in Dubai with a third loss, by 30 runs at the Brian Picollo Park.
The US were restricted to 138 for seven as Kamal Bashir, sharing the new ball with Derrick Brangman, claimed two for 37 off his four overs.
Five bowlers were used as Brangman (1-22), Jacobi Robinson (1-19), Janeiro Tucker (1-22) and Malachi Jones (1-35) all claimed one wicket.
US were in early trouble with Fahad Babar falling lbw to Bashir first ball of the match and opening partner Akeem Dodson departing in the next over from Brangman to a Janeiro Tucker catch.
A third wicket stand of 44 between Steve Massiah (24) and Japen Patel (55 from 46 balls) steadied the innings and laid the foundation for the total.
Karan Ganesh finished not out on 24 from 22 balls.
Opener Chris Douglas produced his best knock of the tour — 30 from 28 balls — but four of the next five batsmen failed to reach double figures as opener Lionel Cann went for four, Tre Manders two, captain Tucker 10, Malachi Jones eight and Terry Fray two before Jacobi Robinson added 17 for the second highest team score.
A.Sanford claimed three for 16 from his four overs and Neil McGarrell two for 17 from three to lead the US bowlers.
USA 148-6 (20 overs)
Bermuda 104 (19.2 overs)
Bermuda went down by 44 runs in their second match at the Brian Picollo Park on Saturday.
Fielding three changes to Friday's opening match, with wicketkeeper Christian Burgess, Lionel Cann and Brian Hall coming in for David Hemp, Kwame Tucker and Kamal Bashir, Bermuda restricted the US to 148 for six in their 20 overs.
Spinner Jacobi Robinson led the bowling with three for 15 from three overs and first-change Dion Stovell supported with two for 29 off four overs.
Captain Janeiro Tucker, who shared the new ball with spinner Derrick Brangman, claimed the other wicket, for 31 runs from his four overs while Brangman gave up 29 runs off four overs.
Akeem Dobson was the top bat for the US with 33 from 26 balls while Srinivasa Santhanam scored 31 and Karan Ganesh 22.
With a changed batting order that saw Friday's top scorer Dion Stovell batting at number five to allow Terryn Fray to open with Chris Douglas, as Lionel Cann came in at number three and captain Janeiro Tucker at number nine, Bermuda made a good start in their run chase as the openers shared in a stand of 32.
However, once Fray departed for eight and then Douglas four runs later for 15, the batting collapse began as Bermuda slumped to 78 for seven and then 89 for nine before a last wicket stand of 15 between Brian Hall (1) and Malachi Jones (13) enabled them to reach 100.
Tre Manders, batting at number four, was the top bat with 17 as only three batsmen reached double figures.
Ganesh and Timroy Allen both claimed three wickets, Ganesh finishing with figures of three 21 while Allen took three for 11 and Muhammed Ghous two for eight.
