Bermuda and Cayman Islands notched victories on the opening day of the Americas Under-19 qualifiers, as Bermuda eased past the Bahamas by 195 runs while Cayman Islands powered to a ten-wicket win over Argentina.

Dennico Hollis's fine 76 provided Bermuda's platform, pushing them to an impressive 300 for 8 from their 50 overs. Bahamas' reply began solidly but they stalled to spinner Tamauri Tucker, who blitzed their middle order with a brilliant spell of 6 for 9 from 6.4 overs. The last eight wickets fell for just nine runs as Bahamas were bowled out for 105.

Argentina slipped to a disappointing 126 from 28.1 overs as Sacha de Alvis took 5 for 16 - including the key wicket of Augusto Mustafa (36), the opening batsman. Ramon Sealey (76 not out) and Zachary McLaughlin (25 not out) took Cayman Islands to a thumping win, racing to their target in 19 overs.

The tournament winners qualify for the Under-19 World Cup in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, next February.
