Special Ministerial Tenders Committee
President of the T&T Cricket
Board (TTCB) Azim Bassarath says
that current minister of Sport Brent
Sancho has transformed the local
sporting environment in his short
stint thus far.
Bassarath speaking to T&T
Guardian said: "The local sporting
environment is a highly transformed
one. I am sure that I speak for all
National Sporting Organisations
when I say this. There is a welcomed
peacefulness in our world of sport.
"A sense of togetherness, under-
standing and calm that provides
sporting administrators and athletes
alike, with the confidence and impe-
tus to plan ahead, to work with ded-
ication and diligence towards achiev-
ing group or personal goals, to
nurture and encourage our youth and
to bring pride and glory to our coun-
try by way of our sporting excel-
Bassarath s struggles with former
minister of Sport, Anil Roberts were
well documented and he has found
Sancho someone he can work with.
"From the date of his appointment,
February 3, there has been a new
dawn for sport in Trinidad and Toba-
"In just seven weeks, we have seen
what a people-centered, committed,
knowledgeable minister can achieve,
simply by engaging those with whom
he works at the Ministry and those
whom he serves, the sportsmen and
sportswomen of Trinidad and Toba-
go. Less talk and positive action has
rejuvenated and invigorated the entire
Bassarath said that better days
were ahead for cricket in this country
because Sancho understood what it
took to move a major sport forward.
He added that the TTCB had
always been a national sporting
organisation that adhered to high
standards of accountability, honesty
and integrity and would continue to
build the sport in this country.
"Our books are open to scrutiny
and we have always met with the
standards expected from us, by our
clubs, our line Ministry and our cor-
"In spite of all this, we were
starved for resources for a very long
time. We were unable to deliver on
our development and capacity-build-
ing programmes in the way we would
have liked but we did not allow our
structure and formation to collapse.
We kept expending resources, as best
as we could, to fuel the entire system,
from clubs to communities, to
National Teams at all levels---men
"We kept the fires burning. From
the income we accessed by way of
participation in the Champions
League we supported our clubs, we
maintained our infrastructure and
we renovated the Sir Frank Worrell
Development Centre. We were chal-
lenged, seriously so, but we did not
shirk our responsibilities.
Bassarath continued: "Let me place
on record that letters requesting
assistance were sent twice before to
the Ministry of Sport with little or
no response. This time around---letter
sent on February 9---positive
response--- March 25. Less talk, Pos-
Minister of Sport, Brent Sancho presents president of the T&T Cricket Board
(TTCB), Azim Bassarath with a much needed cheque.
