Cannonier not taking Flatts lightly

George Cannonier, the St David's coach, says he is not taking anything for granted in his team's title defence against Flatts Victoria in the Eastern Counties final at Lord's today.

“Clay Smith [the Flatts coach] is a clever coach, so I'm not underestimating Flatts in any way,” Cannonier said. St David's defended their title against Bailey's Bay and Cleveland County in the previous two rounds, which both ended in exciting draws.

The champions have made one change to their squad, with colt Seth Campbell replacing Rudell Pitcher.

“The majority of the selection committee had Seth in because he has been to almost every training session,” Cannonier said. “He has worked hard and he's a fighter. He has a lot of energy and coaches love energy.

“Seth has been one of the most underrated players in Bermuda. He has potential, but for some reason he's not favoured. I felt he needed a chance.”

Campbell is one of four colts playing in the match, with Flatts including wicketkeeper Amori Ebbin, leg spinner Logan Jones and off spinner Nekoda Bascome. Cannonier is confident his team will be equal to the task.

“The nucleus of my team are international players, so I'm happy with the team,” he added.

St David's will be captained by Justin Pitcher with his cousin Lionel Cann to serve as vice-captain. The match starts at 10am.
