Bermuda's very soggy tour of Trinidad finally got under way yesterday...but they crashed to a 47-run defeat to a local club side, W Connection Wanderers.
Batting first at the Gilbert Park Ground, Wanderers scored 243 for 9 in their 50 overs with Jason Samuel top-scoring with 68. Clifton Hall (43) and Kenroy Williams (41) - the former Barbados youth captain - also contributing useful knocks. Dwayne Leverock took 3 for 46.
Clay Smith, the opening batsman, made 37 for Bermuda - and David Hemp 35 - but their innings fell away in the middle order, losing their last three batsmen for ducks.
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.
