Fidel Edwards is an injury doubt for the triangular series in Canada after pulling up in training with a back problem. He will have a scan on Wednesday, but it is unlikely a replacement will be called up for the short tournament.

"Fidel pulled up while bowling in the nets with a back strain," Omar Khan, the team manager, told the CMC agency. "He will undergo a scan tomorrow morning to determine the seriousness of the injury. When we get a diagnosis, we will decide if he can continue this tour."

West Indies take on Bermuda in their first match - the first time the two sides have met in an ODI - and are down to three fit fast bowlers; Jerome Taylor, Daren Powell and Kemar Roach.
