Congratulations to Bromsgrove School pupil Jordan Smith who has been picked to play for Bermuda in the ICC World Cricket League Division 4 event from 29 October to 5 November. The event, hosted by the USA for the first time will take place in Los Angeles.
The top two sides from among the competing teams – Bermuda, Denmark, Italy, Jersey, Oman and the USA - will advance to the ICC WCL Division 3, while the bottom two will drop to Division 5 in the system of continuous promotion and relegation between divisions. The third and fourth teams will remain in Division 4.
Jordan is a true Bromsgrovian; a selfless, polite young man who has worked extremely hard over the last 5 years to improve his cricket skills. This recognition, with selection for his national team is a great reward. I wish Jordan well for the upcoming tournament and hope he contributes to Bermuda winning and gaining promotion.
Jordan has warm up matches v Canada in Bermuda this weekend, then the squad flies to LA for the division 4 tournament. At aged 18, Jordan is the youngest player in the squad.
