Nepal faced some stiff competition from a brave Bermuda who won on the Twitter vote, though the strength across Facebook was enough for the favorites to progress.
In the First Quarter-Final, on paper was a mis-match in terms of the two teams’ population, though Bermuda’s strong voting numbers meant this would be no walk in the park for tournament favorites Nepal, who carry a wave of fandom.
Bermuda were by no means the first team in cricket to play in pink, but when they switched their traditional red for fuschia, heads were turned.
A pink shirt with blue sleeves, the design was simple but bold, and enforced the Caribbean-style flair and intensity with which Bermuda were playing as they upset the apple cart and beat the USA twice to reach the Twenty20 Global Qualifiers.
Whilst the shirt may not have brought them too much luck since, it represents the unique style and culture of the North Atlantic island which has made them a fan favorite in associate cricket.
