Kyle Hodsoll is not the only seamer vying for a place in the Bermuda squad.

With the ICC World Cup qualifer scheduled for the hard, bouncy pitches of South Africa, pace could play a crucial part.

Bermuda has lacked a consistent seam attack over the past couple of seasons with injury and unavailability robbing Gus Logie of his first choice attack.

A cadre of talented spinners have done the bulk of the bowling work in recent fixtures, but with the tournament switched from the sub-continent to Africa, slow-bowlers are likely to have a much tougher time.

And Logie has a month in the Caribbean to find the right combination to take Bermuda to glory.

There are six seamers vying for spots in the final 15. Here we take a look at the merits of each.

Kyle Hodsoll

20, St George's

St. George's seamer Hodsoll has been picked with one eye on the future

He doesn't have the destructive pace of Hurdle or O'Brien but he swings the ball about and moves it off the seam.

He impressed on the A tour of Argentina but will probably have to take a few wickets in the Caribbean to force his way into the squad.

Kevin Hurdle

32, Social Club

The sight of Bermuda's premier pace bowler ambling in off a few paces to bowl gentle spinners last season was potentially very worrying for Bermuda's chances in South Africa.

Injury has kept Hurdle from playing a significant role over the past 12 months but he is on the road to recovery. He is unlikely to play in the initial games in Trinidad but the rest of the tour will tell if he can recover form and fitness in time to spearhead the Bermuda attack.

George O'Brien

24, Police

Fiery pace man George O'Brien has the potential to be one of Bermuda's big stars.

Injury and discipline issues have interrupted his rise to the top and he has not quite fulfilled his enormous potential.

The coaching staff has praised his attitude and commitment in the run-up to the Caribbean tour and if he proves his body can handle the stress of multiple matches in a short space of time he would be a threat to any batsman in South Africa.

Stefan Kelly

20, St David's/Cardiff UWIC

School commitments have kept Kelly out of the Caribbean tour but he's already done enough to ink his name onto the team sheet for South Africa.

At 20 he is one of the youngest in the squad but he already has the mentality of an old pro.

Has added a yard of pace in the last 12 months and has become Bermuda's most reliable seam bowler.

Jacobi Robinson

24, Somerset

As a late addition to the squad Robinson probably has more to prove than most.

The Somerset skipper is a reliable seamer and hard-hitting late order batsman. He has yet to put up any significant stats for his country but has always been seen as a cricketer of enormous potential.

Justin Pitcher

21, St David's

Another new addition to the squad Pitcher showed great potential on his first international tours.

He's still learning his trade at this level and is probably considered back-up to the more experienced seamers but could come into contention if he continues his upward curve in the Caribbean.
