Cricinfo staff

Bermuda have opted for youth in their side for the forthcoming trip to Kenya and Dubai.

The 15-man squad includes five members of the Under-19 team - Malachi Jones, Rodney Trott, Tamauri Tucker, Kyle Hodsoll and Kian Butterfield. Irving Romaine remains as skipper while David Hemp, returning after playing for Glamorgan during the summer, is the new vice-captain.

Janeiro Tucker also returns to the squad after missing the European tour, despite again being hauled before the board on disciplinary charges, but there is no place for fast bowlers George O'Brien or Ryan Steede.

The squad will depart on October 15 to play two one day matches against Uganda (October 20 and 22), a three-match ODI series and a four-day Intercontinental Cup clash with Kenya. They move on to Dubai on November 5 for a four-day Intercontinental Cup game with the United Arab Emirates.
