The Bermuda board has been forced to cancel the two 50-over matches against Uganda this weekend because of a hurricane threat. Monday's Twenty20 will be converted into a 50-over game scheduled to start at 2pm local time.

According to an Associated Press report Hurricane Bill, approaching the island, is slightly weakened but still blowing at 120mph. The National Hurricane Center, in Miami, said the hurricane was at present a Category 3 storm but expected to become a Category 4 one on Friday with winds over 130kph. It is expected to pass between Bermuda and the U.S. eastern coast on Saturday.

Uganda won the Intercontinental Cup match against Bermuda by seven wickets.
