Its great to see cricket is spreading all over the world and teams like Bermuda is participating in the world cup. But it is difficult to carry on this performence as the population of Bermuda is really tiny and all of the players are amature. Still they r trying and it is great.

Canada will do well, if the selectors look beyond Toronto for the selection of the national team. I know of a good allrounder Prashan Arumugam who lives in Vancover and has made several trips to Australia to be trained by ex test cricketers. They have made positive comments of his batting technique. I am glad that the under 19's are doing well.

It is refreshing to see that a Bermudian player scored a century with only 6 boundaries. Well Done. The future of Bermuda cricket is indeed bright. Also it is clearly evident that Bermuda and Canada are the best two teams in the America's region. They should play each other more regularly and it will only aid in both teams getting stronger. this strength will then eventually finds its way into their senior national teams. Everything to play for.
