Getting that opening win against Barbados will be crucial to the national team’s fortune in the upcoming Nagico Super50 cricket tournament. With all the changes that have taken place on the national team, with a new manager, new coach and new captain, a good start is critical, according to manager Manohar Ramsaran. “We need to get off to a good start, we need to send a message to the rest of the teams that we mean business and we are looking to win this title.” The tournament gets off tomorrow at the Queen’s Park Oval but T&T will go into action on Sunday when they play their fierce rivals Barbados from 1.30 pm.
The national team held an intense practice session yesterday morning at the National Cricket Centre (NCC) in Couva and today they will check in to the Hyatt at 2 pm. Ramsaran revealed the players enjoyed a good session and were coming alone nicely. “They will be ready for action when the weekend comes. “We are going to stage a two-day camp at the Hyatt starting from Thursday and the team will use this session to put final measures in place for the game. Skipper Dwayne Bravo is leading in this aspect as he is getting the guys to buy into that winning attitude and this is critical.”
