Bermuda on brink of elimination in Uganda

Bermuda’s hopes of finishing off the bottom of the group B tables and avoiding elimination in the ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League B will rest on positive results against Jersey and Italy in their remaining matches tomorrow and Monday.

Bermuda prop up the tables after three straight defeats to Kenya, Uganda and Hong Kong, but the inexperienced team’s hopes of ending with victories got tougher yesterday when Jersey defeated group leaders Hong Kong by 55 runs to move to within a point of the leaders.

In the other match, Italy, four points ahead of Bermuda in the six-team group, went down by seven wickets to Uganda.

Cal Waldron is still searching for his first win as interim coach of Bermuda after taking a much weaker team to Uganda than he had hoped.

Changes are likely to be made again to the team as they try to improve their batting to give them a chance of victory.

No Bermuda batsman has passed 50 in a match so far, with Dominic Sabir’s 34 against Hong Kong being the top score.

Jersey got among the runs yesterday against Hong Kong, posting 289 for eight from their 50 overs before dismissing Hong Kong for 234 in 47 overs.

In the other match, Italy were dismissed for 120 in 36.3 overs before Uganda reached their target with the loss of just three wickets in 24.2 overs.

Tomorrow’s other match will see Kenya playing Uganda.
