Bermuda made an aggressive start but, in the process, lost a few wickets. They kept losing wickets frequently and eventually lost the match by 40 runs.
Bermuda Select XI had played against Grassroots Cricket Academy in their last encounter, where Grassroots Cricket Academy won the toss and elected to bowl. Bermuda did not have a good day on the field, as neither were they able to score runs or keep their wickets in check. They were not able to play their entire quota of 20 overs and were bowled out for just 74. Grassroots lost a couple of quick wickets, but Michael Dovar stood his ground at one end and took his team home. They won the match by six wickets with more than six overs to spare.
