Tobago gets another Super50 game
Cricket fans in Tobago will welcome the news that a third match in the upcoming Regional Super50 series will be played at Shaw Park.
This, according to president of the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB), Azim Bassarath. Originally two games were scheduled for the Sister Isle but Bassarath revealed that there has been a revision to the fixtures that will now see a further match on February 11.
The other two matches will be played on February 5 and 6 and this country will be involved in the latter game.
The rest of the matches including the finals will be played in Trinidad at the Queen’s Park Oval. The recently re-elected TTCB leader said: “Everything is on stream for a successful staging of the tournament. We have already put our committee in place and we are now awaiting the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to contact us for meetings which will put the final touches in place.”
Bassarath said hosting eight teams at one time in this country is no easy task but his committee is ready for the challenge. “We have some very experienced persons on our regional matches committee and we are very confident that things would pull through beautifully.
“Implementation in this country is something that is hard to achieve so what we have done is to put our committee in place early, so as soon as we get the green light from the WICB, everything that we have to implement will be done very quickly.
“We will draw on the experience of the 2007 World Cup that was hosted in the region and we will also look at some of the methods used during the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) this year in order to make this a success.
“This is something that we want to make very successful because it would be a yearly event with people coming to T&T to view the cricket and also take in the Carnival festivities.”
The Regional Super50 will be staged in Trinidad and Tobago for the next three years as it is being sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism in T&T. The tournament bowls off on January 30.
