CPL: Pollard gets strong support to lead Tridents

Bridgetown (Barbados), July 19 (IANS/CMC) Barbados Tridents captain Kieron Pollard has received a ringing endorsement from head coach Desmond Haynes and all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite as the countdown continues to the start of the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Bridgetown (Barbados), July 19 (IANS/CMC) Barbados Tridents captain Kieron Pollard has received a ringing endorsement from head coach Desmond Haynes and all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite as the countdown continues to the start of the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Haynes, a former West Indies opening batsman and Brathwaite have identified Pollard as critical to the success of the franchise in the CPL set to get underway here July 30, reports CMC.

The 26-year-old, one of the elite players in the global Twenty20 format, will lead the Tridents into battle in the six-team tournament that runs until Aug 24.

"It is Twenty20 cricket and Pollard has been a very good servant for Mumbai Indians. He is a great T20 cricketer," Haynes said.

"Pollard is a winner. If you look at what he has done for Mumbai Indians, I think it is something we should be proud of."

Haynes's sentiments were echoed by Brathwaite who pointed to Pollard's impressive resume in international T20 as evidence of his quality.

Brathwaite, who played a One-Day International and a Twenty20 for the West Indies two years ago, said Pollard would definitely bring a winning mentality to the Tridents line-up.

"I'm looking forward to playing under his captaincy. I played with him a couple times in Trinidad for Queen's Park and I always enjoyed his company. He was always very encouraging," Brathwaite said.

"It's always good to play with winners. They say winning is a habit but losing is a habit as well. We have someone leading us who has a proven track record of winning wherever he goes."

Tridents will raise the curtain on the CPL when they face the Darren Sammy-led St. Lucia Zouks in the opening game at Kensington Oval here.

The Barbados Tridents, led by Kieron Pollard consists of Shoaib Malik, Shakib Al Hasan, Dwayne Smith, Umar Akmal, Jason Holder, Shannon Gabriel, Rayad Emrit, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Kyle Mayers, Devendra Bishoo, Kirk Edwards and Raymon Reifer.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
