Hamilton:Former West Indies batsman and Bermuda coach Gus Logie said that he would not tolerate any excuses for under-performance from his boys in the upcoming ICC Trophy tournament slated to be held in Ireland later this year.

Logie was quoted as saying in a Carribean daily-Trinidad Express that he will not brook excuses for lack of performance during the tournament, which is a qualifying tourney for the 2007 Cricket World Cup in West Indies.

"A lot of excuses can be made but I'm not about to make any and this is something we don't want the players to do-getting into the habit of making excuses. We've got to face the situation full-on," the paper quoted.

"As I've said we don't want excuses when we get there. Before they go we will talk about what they can expect: foreign match conditions, perhaps cold weather-you can get three or four seasons in a day-and the nutrition."

"They're not going to get the nice hot meals they do here like rice and peas. We're trying to prepare them holistically so there will be no surprises when they get there," Logie was quoted as saying.

"We were just not ready and certainly not up to par in Trinidad but that doesn't mean we can't be ready for the ICC Trophy if we look at the mistakes and commit ourselves to the cause,"he added.

Bermuda recently had a poor outing in a ten-day camp in Trinidad where they won one of four matches played against teams there.
