Bahamas Sees Off Belize

The Bahamas moved to 2-0 in the International Cricket Council’s Tournament of the Americas Division II competition.

After they survived with a 14 run victory over Argentina to highlight day one action, the Bahamas returned yesterday to top Belize at Haynes Oval.

The Bahamas batted first and scored 149runs in 20 overs.

“The team played exceptionally well, better than yesterday and they seem to be improving a lot more,” BCA Executive Greg Taylor said, “They still need to improve the batting and they should be alright as they progress in the tournament.”

The Bahamas will have the day off and return to competition tomorrow at 2pm.

The Bahamas previously captured the ICC Americas Division II title in 2010, despite losing a thrilling final match to Suriname by three wickets, so the Bahamas looks to be one of the major players, and are thus far living up the expectations as favorites in the tournament.

In 2010 the Bahamas finished with two losses had a net run rate that secured the tournament title for them and promotion to Division 1 in Bermuda later that year.

The Bahamas was promoted to the Division I tournament scheduled for Bermuda in May/June 2010, however was relegated to Div II after a disappointing finish.

Participating teams in the tournament include Argentina, Belize, Panama and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
