Hot on the heels of their new Twenty20 competition, Bermuda have launched a new tournament: Five-Five.

The six-a-side tournament is modelled on the famous Hong Kong sixes and will feature eight teams - St. David's, St. George's, Flatt's, Bailey's Bay, Cleveland, PHC, Devonshire Rec and Social Club.

There will be two groups of four competing in a round robin format, semi-finals and a final all played in a single day - April 19.

"This is the ultimate in entertainment," said Cann who hopes to make the tournament an annual event, with every team in Bermuda ultimately involved.

But he said it was starting off on a small scale, with a handful of sponsors including Barritts and Esso Tigermart.

"I want to build it up gradually. You couldn't have a better facility than the home of cricket at St. David's and it's going to be a real entertaining day.

"It's non-stop cricket from 9am until 6pm at night."

The Bermuda Sun has the full story.
