Bermuda's squad for the Stanford 20/20 tournament, which starts for Bermuda when they play Guyana on the 10th of February, has been named. The squad will be reduced to 13 in two weeks time.
Irving Romaine retains the captaincy, whilst former player Herbie Bascombe coaches the team for the tournament as Gus Logie will be with the Under-19 squad in Malaysia at the time of the tournament.
The many newcomers to the squad are Garvin Aparicio, Ricardo Brangman Junior, Raymond Butterfield, Traddie Simpson, and two players yet to be named, who will be selected from the players who do not go to Malaysia with the Under-19s.
Bermuda will be boosted by the inclusion of David Hemp, who will probably be the most experienced Twenty20 player in the tournament, with 33 Twenty20 matches under his belt for Glamorgan. They'll need all his experience if they are to beat a Guyana side set to include West Indies Test players Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan.
