Students from numerous primary schools were
present at the Oval, which included Petit Valley
Girls, Petit Valley Boys, Tunapuna Presbyterian,
Bamboo Government, Barataria Anglican, Arima

Some of those who gave words of encourage-
ment to the youngsters were Queen's Park Cricket
Club president and former West Indies wicket-
keeper Deryck Murray, Red Steel manager Collin
Borde, Red Steel coach Simon Helmot and Badree.
Badree, in his statement to the adoring children,
said, "You are never too old to learn and never
too big to listen to your elders and teachers. You
must always show respect."
The West Indies spinner said leading his pri-
mary school to victory in a final encouraged him
to become a cricketer.
"When I was in standard two I first made my
school team. I remember we played a final and
it was big game.
"The other team was cruising to victory when
I got the ball but in my first over I got three
wickets and we went on to win the game. I got
six wickets for seven runs and that is my first
memory as a cricketer. That was the motivating
factor for me to move on to T&T and the West
Badree told the students that once they believe
in themselves anything is possible. "I came from
a rural school. It does not matter where you are
or what school you come from, anything is pos-
sible as long as you believe in yourself and work
towards it. If you can believe it you can achieve
it."Earlier, Guardian Group representative Richard
Espinet said the company has always been com-
mitted to the young people of T&T. Espinet said:
"Guardian Group has been committed to youth
and sport over the years and can boast of sup-
porting athletes such as Marc Burns, Darrel
Brown, Fana Ashby and Andrew Lewis, who par-
ticipated in sailing at the last Olympics. They all
passed through our Youth Stars programme."
He added: "Guardian Group has partnered
with the Caribbean Premier League from incep-
tion in 2013. This year we felt it was a great
opportunity to give back to our community by
extending an invitation to primary schools
throughout Trinidad with a cricketing programme
on their curriculum to come and meet the Red
Members of the Red Steel also spent time
giving away cricket balls and signing autographs
much to the excitement of all the students.
The T&T Red Steel will face the St Lucia Zouks
in its opening match of the CPL at the Beausejour
Cricket Ground in St Lucia on Sunday.
