Bermuda benefit from Gomes's experience

Will Luke

Larry Gomes, the former West Indies batsman, has been helping Bermuda train for the forthcoming World Cricket League.

"Larry is there to help with the technical areas and give feedback on cricket specifics and let them know the demands of playing at the top level.

"He's Trinidadian, he knows the conditions, he knows what is required mentally to succeed. We also have Tony Gray, Bernard Julien and Raphick Jumadeen to work with the bowlers.

"It's a chance for all of them to make the most of this opportunity to learn from these guys.

"They have a wealth of experience to pass on. We will be getting information from everyone."

Middle-order batsman Lionel Cann said yesterday that it had been useful to work with Gomes, who he said had analysed all the batsmen and given them pointers on how to improve.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
