Bermuda's Chris Douglas has broken his left thumb during a warm-up match in South Africa and has been ruled out of the ICC World Cup Qualifiers which start next week. He will be replaced by allrounder Jacobi Robinson.

Douglas underwent surgery for the injury which he sustained taking a low catch during Bermuda's 71-run win over Northerns in Pretoria.

Gus Logie, the coach, said he had been banking on Douglas being a key player as Bermuda bid to qualify for the 2011 World Cup. "Sometimes you make plans and then things go awry," Logie told the Royal Gazette. "But that's the way life goes and you just have to make other plans.

"Chris is very disappointed because he really wanted to do well on this tour. But we can't dwell on the past because this is now another opportunity for someone else to step up."
