The T&T Red Force will battle English side Hampshire today in its fifth round Regional Super50 clash at 3Ws Oval in Barbados from 9.30am, looking to continue its resurgence.

After finishing last in the Digicel PCL, the Red Force opened its campaign in the Regional Super50 with massive defeat at the hands of hosts Barbados Pride, however, since then the team has won its last three matches. Red Force is now second on the standings in Group A after four rounds. The team has a record of three wins and a loss for 15 points, four behind leaders Barbados Pride. In third position is the Windward Islands on five. Red Force defeated Hampshire earlier in programme by 75 runs and a victory again in the teams second meeting would put Red Force closer to earning a place into the knock-out stages which will be played in Antigua later on this month.

Ramdin will be looking to his trump cards in spin sensation Sunil Narine and opening batsman Evin Lewis to continue their dominance. After this encounter the Red Force will lose the trio of Lewis, Jason Mohammed and Sheldon Cottrell who would be leaving for South Africa to play in the ICC World Cup qualifiers for the Windies. Their replacements will be Rayad Emrit, Jon Russ Jagessar and Kamil Pooran. After round eight, the Red Force would lose Narine, who will be flying to Dubai to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). There will be no replacement for him, as replacements are only allowed for injured players and those going off to play for the Windies.

Teams

Red Force: Denesh Ramdin, Sheldon Cottrell, Amir Jangoo, Isaiah Rajah, Jason Mohammed, Evin Lewis, Imran Khan, Sunil Narine, Nicholas Pooran, Shannon Gabriel, Khary Pierre, Ewart Nicholson, Tion Webster and Roshan Primus.

Hampshire: Jimmy Adams, Tom Alsop, Gareth Berg, Calvin Dickinson, Fidel Edwards, Sean Irving, Asher Hart, Lewis McManus, Felix Organ, Chris Sole, Brad Taylor, Chris Weatherly, Brad Wheal, Chris Wood.
