Denmark put a damper on Leverock party

Wright Cricket Field, Woodley Park, Los Angeles (Bermuda won toss): Bermuda (2pts) beat Jersey by 85 runs (D/L method)

Bermuda's hopes of promotion from the World Cricket League Division Four are all but over despite a superb century by Kamau Leverock in their big win over Jersey yesterday.

Opening pair Leverock and captain OJ Pitcher responded to coach Clay Smith's challenge to the top order to post big scores by sharing in a huge first-wicket stand of 211.

Leverock was in destructive form with 137 off 111 balls, including eight sixes, while Pitcher scored 63 as Bermuda posted a tournament-high total of 312 for eight wickets in their allotted overs, which were reduced to 45 a side after a delay because a sightscreen was brought down by high winds.

Cejay Outerbridge then did the damage with the ball, taking five wickets for 25 runs off 7.2 overs as Jersey were dismissed for 227 in 37.2 overs.

It was the highest score of November 3, 2016
