HISTORY OF CRICKET

The first recorded cricket match played in Bermuda was on August 30, 1844. The Bermuda Cricket Club was formed a year later in 1845 and a number of international matches were played, however it was not until post World War II that the popularity of cricket strengthened. It was at this time, in 1948 that the Somers Isles Cricket League amalgamated with the Bermuda Cricket Club to form the Bermuda Cricket Board of Control, which became the current Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) in 2003. Bermuda became an Associate member of the ICC in 1966.
