Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although this is relatively new track we are yet to quite understand how it will play for this tournament, going by previous matches contested here, this is a surface made for batting first. While strokeplay is good in the first part of the encounter, the surface massively slows down in the second part, seeing the ball stop and come onto the bat.

BER vs USA Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for BER vs USA Dream11
Our reasoning for picking out Jaskaran Malhotra from USA came down to factors. Not only is he a good bat but is also someone who is bound to be heavily involved behind the wickets, coming up with a solid amount of catches and stumpings in an encounter which is bound to see his side pick up a slew of wickets.
Batsmen for BER vs USA Dream11
With 39 runs in his side’s previous outing against PNG, Monank Patel from USA is our first pick over here. Number three bat Steven Taylor comes in as well while from Bermuda we have opted for Delray Rawlins given he’ll be bowling his left arm brand of offspin as well. With this wicket crumbling as the match goes on, the right handers from USA are going to find it an apathy to face him and he could end up picking up wickets as well today.
All-Rounders for BER vs USA Dream11
The 50 and 2 wickets in his side’s last outing make Timil Patel our first player in this facet. The one thing we have learned ahead of this encounter is the fact that all-rounders are the way to go for in this encounter and Patel offer sublime value given his high batting order and assured four overs with the ball as well.
With 27 in that encounter, Hayden Walsh comes in from the side as well while we have gone ahead with Kamau Leverock and Allan Douglas for this one.
Bowling Order for BER vs USA Dream11
With 27 wickets in 21 matches in Australia’s domestic T20 league, pacer Cameron Gannon comes in for us from USA along with Ali Khan. Bermuda are bound to stumble today and lose wickets in quick time and these two could end up picking a majority of them given that they operate with both the new ball and in the death overs.
Justin Pitcher from Bermuda completes our side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Timil is our captain for this one while Monank is the vice-captain.
