Steven Outerbridge has been appointed Bermuda captain, following David Hemp's resignation from the post last month. A middle-order batsman, Outerbridge, 29, has played 23 ODIs.
Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) president Lloyd Fray said the decision to appoint Outerbridge was unanimous. "The executive [committee] unanimously endorsed the appointment of Steven as the captain of our national senior team" Fray said. "Under the captaincy criteria, he was the outstanding candidate and possesses many qualities that we recognise are important for the leader of our senior team."
The BCB also said that coach David Moore will step down when his contract expires on March 1, 2013, due to personal reasons. Former Bermuda captain Arnold Manders will take on the role of interim coach until May 6, when the World Cricket League Division Three tournament is completed.
Fry said Moore had made a big difference to Bermuda cricket during his tenure. "David has had a major impact on both our national senior squad and our development programmes and leaves big shoes to fill," he said. "The evolution of the BCB junior elite programmes into the current National Academy set-up has created a world-class preparation platform for our young men and women."
Clevie Wade will continue in his role as national assistant coach.
