Bailey’s Bay cleared of ineligible player breach
Bailey’s Bay have been cleared of breaching rules governing the Premier 50 overs league.
The Eastern Counties club had been alleged to have fielded an ineligible player in at least three matches during the recently concluded campaign.
However, the Bermuda Cricket Board has determined that Barbadian all-rounder Michael Agard, the player at the centre of the controversy, is in fact eligible to play.
“The Bermuda Cricket Board has completed our investigations and state that there was no breach by any member club based on the Player Eligibility regulations in the 2022 BCB Premier Division 50 Overs League,” the BCB said in a statement.
“We have notified our 13 member clubs and wish each of them the best in their remaining competitions.”
Agard featured in Bay’s matches against Southampton Rangers, St David’s and St George’s between June 26 and July 11.
