News: Denmark beat weakened Bermuda…

Actually….. its not Bermuda….. its essentially Bermuda A…….. most of their big players from the world cup were missing, but Kevin O Brien was there, who being their best bowler was still left out from the World Cup squad due to disciplinary issues……

If you think of it as Bermuda A, then Denmark did not do anything special…… I dont have access to the scorecard, so I am not sure exactly who played for Denamrk and whether all of those who played actually qualify for Denmark either……

Still it makes interesting headline 🙂 I think both Ireland and Holland will eat the Bermudans for lunch…… and then dinner too……

    Yes, but I think this is going to be more or less the Bermuda side for the future…I don’t think this side would be competitive even in Div 2 of the Intercontinental Cup, if one such existed, leave alone Ire or Neth…maybe Italy should have also utilized this opportunity to organize some warm up games against them…Also, Argentina should look to arrange annual fixtures against this side; they would actually fancy their chances…

    I think you mean George O’Brien. Scorecards for the game can be found here: http://www.islandstats.com/sport.asp?assoc=1&sport=17

    Both teams with 100% eligible players.

    The Bermudans have lost the second game as well ….. by 7 wickets….. a much more comprehensive victory……..

    I scored for the Danish team in both matches against Bermuda. Denmark had pretty much their 1st XI squad out but strengthened by the re-introduction of all-rounder Lars Hedegaard. Bermuda have had several players retire since the World Cup so this was just about as strong as they could be at present. In the first match (that Denmark won by 5 wickets), Denmark opening bowler Thomas Hansen reduced Bermuda to 39 for 7 – taking 7 for 13 (a Denmark record) in his 10 over spell. Denmark looked a far better outfit than in their previous two matches against Ireland A.

    In the second match, Denmark won by 7 wickets – the highlights being 5 wickets for Copenhagen policeman David Borchersen (aka ‘Big Dave’) and 50 not out (from 35 deliveries) by Lars Hedegaard.

    Bermuda head out to Kenya for 4 one-dayers against Kenya A (2 in Mombasa and 2 in Niarobi)in October before travelling to Windhoek, Namibia for Word Division 2 in November.

    Why is Bermuda playing in div 2? I think they are going to play an IC matches against Kenya and Namibia

    I think he’s referring to Denmark’s African tour for the WCL Div 2 tournament…Bermuda wouldn’t want to be earning the wrath by playing and losing to Kenya A…

    Chris, Are you based in Denmark?…If so, tell us something about the media coverage for the sport in Denmark?
