USA and Bermuda remain unbeaten
Day two of the Americas Championship in Florida saw the USA and Bermuda consolidate their position as favourites to qualify for the global qualifier in Dubai later this year.
Just two matches were played on day two, both at the CBRP Stadium in Broward County. Suriname took on Bermuda in the opening match of the day. Batting first, Suriname scored 138-8 from their 20 overs, Shazam Ramjohn top scoring with 42. Rodney Trott was the pick of the bowlers with 3-17.
In reply, Bermuda set off slowly, and were 91-3 with 7 overs to go. The prospect looked a little tougher when the big hitting Lionel Cann was dismissed for a duck from the first ball of the 14th over, but Janeiro Tucker took over and smashed 65 not out from just 30 balls to take his team to a six wicket win with 8 balls to spare.
In the afternoon, the hosts took on the Division Two champions the Bahamas, and restricted them to 113-7 from their 20 overs, Turan Brown top scoring with 31 from 16 balls.
The USA had little problem chasing down their target, and they won by 8 wickets with more than five overs to spare. Ryan Corns led the way with an unbeaten 61 from 43 balls.
