Bermuda to host Americas Championship

The Division One Championship will comprise six teams: Bermuda, USA, Canada, Cayman Islands, Argentina and Bahamas

Bermuda will be hosting the 2010 ICC Americas Regional Division One Championship. The competition will begin on May 28 and will be followed by a Twenty20 tournament in June.

The Division One Championship will comprise six teams: Bermuda, USA, Canada, Cayman Islands, Argentina and Bahamas. The Bermuda Cricket Board has also signed an agreement with Fresh TV to provide live coverage for a game each day.

The board’s vice-president Allan Richardson said: "The BCB is delighted to secure the rights to host the ICC Americas Regional Division 1 Championship. It has been a challenge securing the tournament within ICC budget and it is thanks to many of our local providers who have helped us to make this happen. Bringing international cricket to Bermuda is a priority to showcase our local talent and to generate enthusiasm for our National Sport for all ages.

"We are extremely pleased to be pursuing a TV strategy with Fresh TV to enhance and promote the game of cricket for everyone in Bermuda. Coverage of this event provides a unique opportunity to reach the entire community by giving them the choice of coming to the game to support their team or to follow the action on TV."

    PLease fix the dates in the article. The stated "May 28 and finish on April 4" doesn't quite make sense.
