Stefan Kelly a potential World Cup bowler

Bermuda are hoping Stefan Kelly, a 17-year-old fast bowler, will become a much-needed strike-bowler for them in the coming years - possibly even as soon as the World Cup:

Stefan Kelly is now into his third year of a sports scholarship at Oakham School in the English Midlands and has spent the last two weeks furthering his cricketing education on a school tour in South Africa.

The 17-year old has spent much of the winter in the indoor nets developing his technique and stands a strong chance of being selected for Leicestershire’s Under 19 squad in the summer.


But as with every other Bermudian cricketer in or on the fringes of the national team, the World Cup has never been far from Kelly’s mind...

"Having spoken quite a lot to (Bermuda Cricket Board chief executive) Neil Speight though, I know that I am part of their overall thinking and it is up to me to go on and prove that I am worthy of a place."
