President, Lloyd Smith, said, "On Behalf of the Bermuda Cricket Board, I would like to wish the National Cricket Team well.
With the positive attitudes and belief in themselves, which they have shown over the last couple of months, I know that they're more than capable of qualifying for the 2020 Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
I believe that this is the best team to have represented Bermuda since the 2007 World Cup. Now, saying that, Bermuda, letís show the team the same support that was given to the 2007 team ó and they will make us proud, like they did in August."
The Bermuda Cricket Board would like to thank employers of the players and coaches for allowing them to represent Bermuda with their full support, the clubs, representatives, families and friends.Ē
