Cricket Canada and Bermuda Cricket Board have agreed to cancel the last two games of the Cricket Canada Summer Festival between Canada and Bermuda.

Bermuda will leave Toronto on Thursday in advance of Hurricane Igor reaching the island.

Reggie Pearman, the BCB president, said: "Due to the threat of Hurricane Igor the Bermuda Cricket Board has cancelled the remainder of the Canada tour to ensure that the squad can return to Bermuda to be with their family prior to the weekend. We are sorry to miss the games but family matters take priority when a storm of this significance and proximity threatens the island."
