BER vs CAY Dream11 Match Preview:
The Cayman Islands take to the field for the third time in international cricket on Wednesday as they take on Bermuda.
Despite having stars like Gregory Strydom, a former Zimbabwe ODI player and Sacha DeAlwis, a first-class cricketer from Sri Lanka in their side, a young Cayman Island side has lived upto its reputation of being a novice to international cricket.
Bermuda, on the other hand, have performed as seasoned campaigners. They are currently second in the table and only behind Canada on net run rate.
