Bermuda are currently in Trinidad on a tour, in preparation for the World Cup Qualifiers in South Africa. But for Lionel Cann, their batsman, the trip has felt more like a boot camp.
e always link up with a guy called Jeremiah, who does fitness training for the army, when we're down in Trinidad. When the boys hear his name we know we're in for a tough time. He's brutal.
The week started on Saturday with a seven-mile hike to the top of a mountain near Port of Spain.
It was a team building exercise with the army fitness instructors and they had us doing push-ups and sit-ups on the way up.
The idea was that everybody helped each other get to the top. It was a four-and-a-half hour trek and I think everybody was busted by the time we got back to the cricket academy in Couva.
Sunday we were in the nets early. Everybody got a hit and then we split into groups and switched between the nets and the weight room.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
