Adrian Robson has been following Bermuda's progress during their warm-up tour of West Indies. The results, he says, are encouraging.
But a side almost unrecognisable from that which competed in the World Cup in Trinidad in 2007 has suddenly grown in stature.
What has been most encouraging in the last few weeks is the improvement in so many areas, notably the top order.
For years Logie has struggled to find an opening partnership, to build a foundation which would allow the rest of the batsmen to get into a comfort zone and play their normal game. Too often the middle order have been forced to play off the back foot, playing with caution just to ensure some kind of respectable total.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years.
