BER vs USA Dream11 : USA and Bermuda fight it out for second place today in an encounter which could prove as the deciding factor come the end of the league
Occupying second place in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier Americas’ Region, USA look to recover from a close fought defeat against Canada yesterday. Suffering their first defeat of the marquee league, the side all but look to be out of the running for top spot but will be looking to consolidate their second position in the league come today.
With this edition offering the top two sides a place in the ICC 2020 T20 World Cup Qualifiers, today’s clash between USA and Bermuda comes as a massive one for both the sides. Both of today’s opponents have defeated Cayman Islands, also falling to defeats against Canada, a narrative which looks set to emulate itself come the second round of fixtures.
It’s this script which massively elevates the importance of today’s clash with the winner amassing two pivotal points, ones which could end up playing a decisive role in determining which side ends in second place. With USA having defeated Bermuda the last time these two outfits met, sealing a 6 run in their favour, the side will be looking to emanate the sae performance which got them past the finishing line on the day.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With their being no break in between matches and rain lashing the track as well, this is a surface where the batsmen have endured a horrid time while trying to play their shots. Spinners have flourished here, getting the ball to immensely spin and turn, leaving batsmen flummoxed on how to peel away the slower bowlers for runs.
With the surface only set to break up in the second part of today’s encounter, the side winning the toss will be looking to bat first here.

Wicket-Keeper for BER vs USA Dream11
We have decided to bring in Jaskaran Malhotra for this fixture with the USA batsmen clearly the better option out of all the available choices. He endured a sordid outing yesterday but with him being capable of finding quick runs and creaming the ball to the fence, we are going to retain him in our side.
Along with this, his role with the gloves as well make him a good pick with Bermuda bound to tumble and lose wickets in quick succession.
Batsmen for BER vs USA Dream11
We are picking out two batsmen from either side over here with Steven Taylor from USA being the first player to come into our side. He’s scored good runs in the side’s previous two encounters against Canada and Cayman Islands and with him being someone who can bowl spin as well, he becomes a good choice for this encounter.
Timil Patel is also included from the side after snaring 6 wickets in two encounters with his legspin being an adversity for batsmen. Bermuda come into this encounter with a right hand heavy batting unit and the ball turning away from them will massively perturb them today.
Elsewhere from Bermuda we have opted for their best player, Delray Rawlins for this one. Not only has been quissential to the side with 113 runs in three encounters but his left arm brand of spin has flummoxed batsmen across the league, making him a well-rounded and formidable player.
Onias Bascome enters our side from the outfit as well after delivering a match winning performance with the bat yesterday, scoring a half-century to seal a comprehensive 6 wicket win over Cayman Islands.
All-Rounders for BER vs USA Dream11
Hayden Walsh and Timroy Allen are our two picks from USA while from Bermuda we have gone in with Kamau Leverock. Leverock entered this series holding a staunch stature in his side but has failed to live upto the expectations accorded from him and will be looking to use his pace to deter USA from putting on a big score today.
Bowling Order for BER vs USA Dream11
USA’s pacer Cameron Gannon is the only bowler we have selected in this facet with us having compensated for their bowling picks in the previous segment. Elsewhere with 4 wickets from 3 matches, George O’Brien is selected by us from Bermuda along with Rodney Trott whose right arm offspin saw him pick up his first two wickets of the league yesterday.
Captain And Vice-Captain for BER vs USA Dream11
Timil Patel is our captain for this fixture while Rawlins is chosen as the vice-captain.
