Bermuda lose to club side

Martin Williamson

St Lucia’s club champions South Castries beat Bermuda a 50-run defeat in a one-day practice match at Beausejour Stadium.

Twenty-three year-old Xavier Gabriel top-scored with 59 as South Castries scored 234 in 46.1 overs and then restricted Bermuda to 184 in 43.5 overs. Gabriel also took four wickets.

It was the first match on a four-leg Caribbean tour for Bermuda, who are preparing for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in April.

Martin Williamson
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.
