Kevin Hurdle and Delyone Borden are the surprise absentees from Bermuda's squad to the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in South Africa next month.

Borden has been punished for refusing to play after a pay dispute on a recent Caribbean tour, while Hurdles has failed to recover from a groin injury.

Irving Romaine, who led the side to the 2007 World Cup, is retained as captain, and the former Glamorgan batsman David Hemp is his vice-captain.

Squad Irving Romaine (capt), David Hemp (vice-capt), Chris Douglas, Fiqre Crockwell, Lionel Cann, Stephen Outerbridge, Jekon Edness, Janiero Tucker, Stefan Kelly, Kyle Hodsoll, George O'Brien, Glenn Blakeney, Dwayne Leverock, Rodney Trott, Tamauri Tucker.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
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.
