by International Cricket Council

Scorecard:Bermuda v Suriname
Player:LOB Cann, IH Romaine, DCC Borden, DS Sewanan, MA Bhoelan

DateLine: 29th November 2008


On the main stadium field at Central Broward Regional Park, Bermuda were predictably way too strong for Suriname and ran out comfortable 224 run victors. Electing to bat first, Bermuda scored an imposing 290 for 3 in their 50 overs, with opener Lionel Cann notching up an impressive 101 off 97 balls with 16 fours. Christopher Douglas, 42 off 52 balls with 3 fours, Stephen Outerbridge, 62 off 81 balls including 3 fours, and skipper Irving Romaine, 50 not out from 51 balls, with 4 fours and a six, all produced fine batting performances, while for Suriname, young Giovani Gokoel impressed, taking 2 for 40 in his 10 overs.


In reply, left-arm spinner Delyone Borden was the scourge of the Surinamese batsmen, taking a brilliant 6 for 17 in 10 overs, as Suriname were bundled out for 66 in 34 overs. Stephen Outerbridge completed an excellent all-round performance, taking 3 for 15 in 7 overs.


Bermuda coach, Gus Logie, was pleased with his teams progress thus far: “Today was all about building on yesterdays effort, and we did that strongly. It was also good to continue building confidence for the tough games ahead. We are constantly looking for self-improvement and today we got that, also our attitude and approach towards the game was very business-like, which was important. Logie was also impressed with the fantastic new stadium, and gave credit to the groundstaff and curator for the good pitches on the first two days, and the excellent cricket ground.


Cyrill Bonar, Suriname manager, continued to look for positive experience: “Although we think we can play better, we recognize that we are playing very strong countries…USA, Bermuda and Canada in three days. We improved in the field today, and the captain was certainly far better with field placements. Still, we can do far better as a team, and we are looking forward to the other three matches.”
