Bermuda board silent over contract talks

Martin Williamson

Less than a week before the national team depart for their tour of Africa, the Bermuda Cricket Board is still refusing to comment on the ongoing contractual wrangling which has cast a large shadow over the team’s preparations.

It is also still not clear if the BCB’s investigation into “discrepancies” in the salary compensation claim made by allrounder Lionel Cann is likely to reach a conclusion before the squad fly to Kenya next Tuesday. Cann, still recovering from surgery, wasn’t expected to make the trip to Kenya but had been pencilled into join the squad for later matches in South Africa.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
