Bermuda 387 for 7 dec beat b>Cayman Islands 197 and 85 (Leverock 6-16) by an innings and 105 runs
Bermuda virtually guaranteed themselves a place in the ICC Intercontinental Cup semi-finals when they wrapped up an innings-and-105-run victory over Cayman Islands in Toronto.
Dwayne Leverock: 6 for 16 second time round and 11 for 72 in the match
Canada need to score more than 575 inside 90 overs against Cayman Islands later this week and then bowl them out twice if Bermuda are to be denied. But weather forecasters expect heavy rains in the Toronto area from Hurricane Katrina, and if correct that match could be a complete washout.
It took Bermuda a little over an hour to polish of Caymans. Resuming on 50 for 4, they had little answer to Dwayne Leverock who took five of the six wickets to fall, finishing with 6 for 16 and match figures of 11 for 72. Despite that, Clay Smith was named Man of the Match for his first-innings hundred.
Bermuda, barring miracles from Canada, will meet Kenya in Namibia in October. The other semi-final will be between Ireland and United Arab Emirates.
