On Thursday, October 9th, the Board announced Temiko Wilson was replacing Fiqre Crockwell who withdrew from the team, but the team released by the ICC has yet another change.
Bermuda Team: Janeiro Tucker (captain), Onias Bascome, Kamal Bashir, Christian Burgess, Lionel Cann, Jordan Desilva, Allan Douglas II, Terryn Fray, Malachi Jones, Kamau Leverock, Tre Manders, Delray Rawlins, Dion Stovell and Delano Talbot.
Attempts to contact the CEO of the Bermuda Cricket Board Neil Speight have yet to materialize however we do intend to continue.

Umpires May Call Chucking Next Season
Former international umpire Darrell Hair who Bermuda’s Roger Dill was appointed to umpire the One Day International between Ireland and England in 2006 has said the ICC's crackdown on bowlers with suspect actions has come 20 years too late, and that the weakness of umpires over time to do anything about the issue has helped created a "generation of chucker’s." Hair was the first umpire to call former Sri Lankan offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan for chucking during a Boxing Day Test in Melbourne in 1995.
"Whatever they're doing now, they're doing 20 years too late," Hair told Sydney Morning Herald. "They had a chance in 1995 to clean things up and it's taken them 19 years to finally come back and say they want chuckers out of the game. I can't believe that Saeed Ajmal has been able to bowl as long as he has, and they say he is bending his arm by 45 degrees [the legal limit is 15 degrees] or something. Well, every man and his dog would have known that.
"I suppose what it does show is the general weakness of the umpires over time to do anything about it."
With the report of chucking coming to the forefront, the question during the off season for the Bermuda Cricket Board and the Bermuda Cricket Umpires Association will they call players next season.
It would appear that the ICC is looking to get a hold of the situation and it would make sense for the local officials to follow suite.

BCB CEO & ICC Announce Audio-Visual Rights Deal
Bermuda Cricket Board CEO Neil Speight was involved in the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting prior to the announcing that cricket’s biggest-ever global broadcast partnership by jointly awarding its audio-visual rights for ICC Events from 2015 to 2023 to Star India and Star Middle East.
The decision was made by the ICC Business Corporation (IBC) Board, ICC’s commercial arm, during a meeting at the ICC headquarters in Dubai on Sunday. The decision followed a robust tender, bidding and evaluation process, which started in July 2014. During the process, which involved two rounds of bidding, the ICC received 17 competitive bids from various broadcasters across different territories for its audio-visual rights.
While the final value of the rights fee agreed will not be disclosed, it is significantly in excess of the ICC’s previous commercial deals.
The current cycle has seen ESPN Star Sports hold the audio-visual rights until the contract expires at the end of next year’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
Included in the new eight-year period are 18 ICC tournaments*, including two ICC Cricket World Cups (2019 and 2023), two ICC Champions Trophy tournaments (2017 and 2021) and two ICC World Twenty20 tournaments (2016 and 2020).
The meeting of the IBC Board was attended by the following:
ICC Chairman Narayanaswami Srinivasan ICC President Mustafa Kamal ICC Chief Executive David Richardson Australia Wally Edwards Bangladesh Nazmul Hassan England Giles Clarke India Narayanaswami Srinivasan New Zealand David White* Pakistan Shaharyar Khan South Africa Chris Nenzani Sri Lanka Jayantha Dharmadasa West Indies Dave Cameron Zimbabwe Wilson Manase Associate Member Director (Bermuda) Neil Speight Associate Member Director (Namibia) Francois Erasmus Associate Member Director (Singapore) Imran Khawaja
