Scorecard

Bermuda endured a nightmarish first day in their Intercontinental Shield match against United Arab Emirates, crumbling for 56 after opting to bat first and then conceding a 136-run lead as UAE closed on 192 for 2, opener Arshad Ali unbeaten on 75.

Bermuda's troubles started early, as their opening pair of Chris Foggo and Fiqre Crockwell were parted in the second over. What followed was carnage, the highest partnership of the innings a mere 18 as every batsman apart from Foggo was dismissed for six runs or less.

The wickets were shared around by UAE's bowlers, but left-arm spinners Shadeep Silva and Ahmed Raza proved particularly destructive. Raza found himself on a hat-trick in the 21st over as Foggo, who struck three fours and a six in his 29, and Stefan Kelly departed in consecutive balls.

Joshua Gilbert survived the hat-trick ball, and he and Jordan DeSilva survived another 10 overs before Amjad Javed returned to trap DeSilva lbw and Gilbert was run out four balls later.

Bermuda deflated further as Abdul Rehman and Arshad put on a steady 94 for the first wicket before Rehman was pinned infront by Rodney Trott for 65. Arshad then added 46 with captain Khurram Khan, registering his seventh first-class fifty and securing UAE's dominance with an unbeaten 52-run stand in Saqib Ali's company.

Bermuda along with Bahamas, Turk Cacious Islands, Cayman Islands, Cuba & Domician Republic must combine to form West Indies 2 or better known as Caribbean Islands. Individually even though cricket passion exists in some nations but they ll remain very weak due to limited pool to select from. Bermuda which once reached the world Cup now bundling to UAE at 58! I hope ICC considers something like this and makes it happen
