Bermuda lost their ODI status because of the lack of "interest" of cricket from the players. I guess it doesn't effect the cricketing world at much but after their government spending a huge $11 million to increase the infrastructure on Bermudan cricket its kinda sad for them.

How many of you remember this from 1982:

Bangladesh 67 (31.3 ov); Bermuda 70-3 (15.5 ov)

Go to the History (http://www.banglacricket.com/History/)section from the main menu and check out the score card.

Nazim Shira (http://www.banglacricket.com/History/nazim1.php)zi was the only one with double scores. Stalwarts like Rumi, Hira, Lipu all "ducked"-out.

cricket is a profession too..just like any other sports.yes alot of them do play for the love of the game..but at the end of the day they too need to make some money...i bet all these players have other jobs beside playing cricket for bermuda so they have to think about everything before they make up their mind.. its so easy for me and you to seat here and criticize them but unless you are in someone elses shoe you don't know the truth..

bermuda sucked...they didn't deserve their ODI status to begin with. i think they beat their fellow associates like 2-3 times out of 20 odd matches.

Its sad. However, if they can't beat the associates then they dunt deserve it. I mean, if you arnt interested with ure ODI status (and the money that comes with it) on stake, then you don't deserve it to begin with.

well they won about 8-10 matches actually. out of about 50 or so. still a pretty poor record against associates. they dominated canada thoroughly, winning all but 2 games against them.

They also beat Denamrk in the World Cup Qualifiers but lost all their other games. I think it's just the attitude to cricket that let them down, they didn't have bad team

It seems that Trott was not a bad spinner, sadly because of his team mates he won't be able to do anything

Heck, in the 80s and early 90s, we had even lost to the likes of Malaysia, Denmark, Papua New Guinea, East Africa, Netherlands, UAE .... not to mention the more well known losses to Canada and Kenya.

yeah...our overall winning percentage was a mere 60% in 40 odd OD matches played in WCQTs from 1979-97...in other words thats like winning 3-2 in a five match series against minnows. we were pretty crappy. especially when u consider the population and (relative) popularity of cricket in BD.

Ireland bowled out windies for 25 back in 70s

As soon as Leverock retires from cricket Bermuda lost their ODI status. Looks like they have lost their weight too much.

Cricket to become a global sport should leave that 'elite' attitude. While the ICC can not spread cricket, can not create new cricket nations, it is a big loss for the game, if some existing ones are losing their status or eventually leaving cricket.

Those who are making fun of Bermuda do not need to go back in the history of 80s, as Zunaid bhai as pointed, you could rather have a look at their world cup match (http://content.cricinfo.com/wc2007/engine/current/match/247480.html)against us. Mukuddem already created a panic and it was a hard fought win by Ashraful and Sakib. Kevin hurdle also helped us conceeding 7 wides and 3 no balls in a pretty low scoring match. If I can recall correctly, he did also miss easy catches to help us.
