There has been a shameful incident in cricket. A leading cricket player of the Bermuda squad has faced some heroin charges and thus has withdrawn his name from the Bermuda squad announced earlier this month. The squad was announced for a four country Twenty20 tournament which is scheduled to be held in the United States.

On that note, an announcement has also been made by the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) that Fiqre Crockwell has pulled out his name of the ICC Americas Division One Twenty20 qualifiers in Indianapolis which was set to be held from May 2-11. This was done after questions were being raised about his particular inclusion in the squad.

Also, no valid reasons were being provided for the withdrawal of the 29-year old cricketer from the squad.

Crockwell took part in the warm up tour to Jamaica just two weeks ago and is to stand on a trial on May 27th, in order to face charges of possession of heroin with intent to supply.

But the 29-year old Bermuda cricketer has denied the charges being put over him.

Not only that, Bermuda squad have lost the pace bowler, Malachi Jones because of an injury for the US trip.

And as a result of such, Crockwell and Jones have been replaced by Jason Anderson and Jacobi Robinson in the tournament. Alongside Bermuda, the tournament would feature United States of America, Canada and Suriname.

The president of Bermuda Cricket Board, Lloyd Fray said that it is disappointing that Fiqre and Malachi are unable to represent their country in the four nation tournament. He also added that they are fortunate enough to replace the two cricketers with two highly experienced international cricketers.
