We are the business end of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Americas Regional Final and it is Bermuda who looks a strong team and has been one of the two unbeaten teams in the tournament so far. Courtesy a couple of victories, Bermuda is at the top of the points table along with Canada.
A victory against USA will certainly mean that they are just a step away from going through to the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia next year. USA has been patchy and has won just a solitary game in the tournament so far. They will be looking put an impressive show.
