Saleem Mukuddem, the Bermuda allrounder, is one of three injured players to be missing from Bermuda's training week in Trinidad.

According to the Royal Gazette Mukuddem, the lone highlight of an otherwise forgettable tour of Kenya last year, has suffered a lower-back injury and will stay in the country to undergo a CT scan. The other absentees are Stephen Outerbridge, the opening batsman and Stefan Kelly, Bermuda's fast bowler, who have foot and thigh injuries respectively. All three players, however, are expected to be fit for the World Cricket League in Nairobi at the end of this month.

The squad, now reduced to 14, are training in Trinidad to prepare for key battles later in the month. They return home on January 19 before heading straight back out to Kenya, where they play a warm-up match against Uganda on January 28.
