Bravo wants T&T to avenge home loss
T&T middle order batsman Darren Bravo believes the intensity with which his team is playing at the moment, will be enough to take them to the regional T20 cricket title. Speaking to the Trinidad Guardian during the Canada versus Hampshire game yesterday, Bravo said T&T was quietly confident of winning the title. “The team has worked very hard and the intensity with which we train will be taken on the field. This intensity will be key as we move forward.” Bravo noted the team was favourite to win the title at home last year but fell away after one bad performance against Guyana. “There is a burning desire to make up for that loss.” Bravo also spoke about his own form. “I am hitting the ball nicely and this gives me a good feeling. I am looking to go out there and give my team the upper hand with good scores. I am aware I am one of the top batsmen on the team and I want to lead us into good batting positions.”
T&T will be without two inspirational players in Dwayne Bravo and Keiron Pollard but Darren thinks there is enough talent in the ranks to cover the loss. “The fact that two of our main players are not there provides a good opportunity for someone else to come forward. I am getting the feeling this would happen in this tournament. We have some very talented players and once they play to their potential and the game plan, we will make up for the loss of those two guys. I like the way the guys are responding, they are looking to do anything to make a winning combination and team T&T will be a force to reckon with.” Meanwhile manager of the team Omar Khan said his players started the day yesterday with a 6 am beach session and this was followed by a very rigourous training session at the Police Sports ground.
