'This is more like a bootcamp' says Bermuda batsman

Bermuda are currently in Trinidad on a tour, in preparation for the World Cup Qualifiers in South Africa

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.

The Bermuda Sun has his diary.

    It's good to know that countries outside the top level are also working hard and how they prepare for their matches, whether it is different or not. An interesting blog.
