T&T bids to continue 4-year unbeaten run
T&T will go into their regional First Class cricket clash against Barbados at Guaracara Park in Pointe-a-Pierre today, looking to preserve their unbeaten 4-year run against the former powerhouses of Caribbean cricket. Apart from last year’s contest, when T&T had to come from behind, and narrowly missed out on a victory, the home team have dominated their regional neighbours over the last five years. T&T have won four of the last eight matches, lost once, and have gained first innings points in two draws two seasons ago.
At Guaracara Park, T&T has been very impressive winning one and coming within a whisker of winning the other match played against Barbados at the venue. In 2009 at Guaracara Park, T&T came close to winning. Batting first the home team tallied a massive 505. Barbados replied with 273 and T&T then made 99 for three declared leaving the visitors a winning target of 332 runs, the Barbadians reached 273 for nine when the game was called off. In 2008, Trinidad and Tobago made 420 and Barbados responded with 184. Batting a second time with a lead of 236, T&T declared at 215 for nine—setting Barbados 452. They folded for 201, losing the match by 250 runs.
