Lara to travel with Trinidad squad for CL T20

Sep 13 2013, 8:42am CDT | by IANS

Port of Spain, Sep 13 (IANS/CMC) West Indies batting legend Brian Lara will travel with the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to India for the upcoming Champions League T20 which begins next week.

Port of Spain, Sep 13 (IANS/CMC) West Indies batting legend Brian Lara will travel with the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to India for the upcoming Champions League T20 which begins next week.

The former Windies captain will not be a formal part of the team management but is visiting India in a dual role as a tourism ambassador and Red Force mentor.

The team is leaving for the sub-continent Monday after its final warm-up matches Thursday and Friday.

"I have an open door policy and while I am in India, I will be looking to assist Denesh Ramdin and his team, as much as I can," said Lara Thursday.

"The role is not official but I will be meeting with the board to finalise my role with the boys. Once is red, white and black, you are wearing, it is all about Trinidad and Tobago and I am here to assist in that regard."

Lara had performed a similar role as unofficial adviser to the T&T franchise during the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

"It's an honour to be part of the upcoming trip. I'm happy to be associated with Trinidad & Tobago's participation. We have a team that will make us proud," Lara said.

"I am just going to be there, not a part of management but as a former cricketer. I am willing to lend a hand in any way I can. I hope I will have a chance to interact with the guys while in India and in whatever way I can help."

Red Force will play one warm-up game before opening their campaign against the Brisbane Heat in Ranchi Sep 22.

Is Test cricket heading for its last innings?

Oct 29 2014 11:00pm CDT | Source: Spectator Magazine

Lions and weasels The Archers and Test cricket: words you rarely find in the same sentence and more’s the pity as there’s not much else that can give greater innocent pleasure. But could these magnificent institutions be in the midst of some existential crisis? On peaceful old radio, the writers seem devoted to purging The Archers of the Archers: David, Ruth and Jill could be junking Brookfield for Northumberland, Tom Archer ha ...
