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."
