Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 16th 2015 Contents The T&T Red Force may be bat-
ting to save the match today on the
final day against Barbados Pride in
the second round of the West Indies
Cricket Board Professional Four-
Day tournament at Kensington
Oval in Barbados.
Barbados closed on 171/3 in the
second innings yesterday, an overall
lead of 225 runs. Earlier in the day,
the T&T middle and lower order
battled hard eventually being dis-
missed for 246 in the first innings
in response to the Bajans first innings
tally of 300.
The Barbadian batsmen were more
aggressive in the second innings,
looking for quick runs in an effort
to force an outright victory today.
West Indies Test opener Kraigg
Brathwaite fell just before the close
for a top score of 72. The Barbados
captain faced 151 deliveries and
stroked six fours, while Shamarh
Brooks continued his excellent form
closing the day on an unbeaten 51.
Brooks top scored for Barbados in
the first innings with 111.
The spinners again led the way
for T&T, as Imran Khan (1/57), Nars-
ingh Deonarine (1/36) and Kavesh
Kantasingh (1/30) all snatched one
Earlier, Steven Katwaroo and Yan-
nick Ottley took T&T from 153/5
overnight to 191 before Ottley fell to
Kevin Stoute for 45 ending the 92-
run partnership. Wicketkeeper Kat-
waroo, T&T s top batsman in the
tournament so far, continued to frus-
trate the Barbadian bowlers until
Stoute bowled him for 64. Katwaroo,
who scored 71 in the first round
against the Leeward Islands, struck
nine fours in his 166-ball knock.
T&T skipper Rayad Emrit pitched
in with 20 to push the total to 246.

of the University of the West
Indies professor Hilary Beckles
says he does not support calls for
the dissolution of the West Indies
Cricket Board (WICB).
The former WICB director is
suggesting a restructuring exercise
that would allow the WICB to
emerge "stronger, legitimate and
Sir Hilary added that such a
development would be worthy of
grand celebration in 2027 when the
board reached the milestone of 100
years of service to regional cricket
and "Caribbean nationhood".
"Old institutions, furthermore,
like WICB and The UWI, are cul-
tural treasures within our new and
emerging societies and should be
preserved for posterity, but change
with the times they must," Sir
Hilary pointed out.
"This is not an easy task. Stake-
holders have the right to demand
their transformation and must facil-
itate their adaptation".
Sir Hilary s comments were con-
tained in a letter to the Barbados
Today and came on the heels of an
independent review Panel of the
Caribbean Community Sub-Com-
mittee on Cricket Governance.
The Panel, chaired by his aca-
demic colleague and principal of
the UWI Cave Hill Campus, Pro-
fessor Eudine Barriteau, recom-
mended the WICB be disbanded
and an interim committee installed
to run the affairs of cricket in the
"As we enter this second phase
of nation-building, a new man-
agement model for the WICB is
required so that it may persist as
fit for purpose. This is where we
have reached," said Professor Beck-
"The report on cricket gover-
nance penned by the distinguished
Hon PJ Patterson has set the tone
and texture for WICB s financial
and corporate reform, and systemic
governance change. It sets out a
new model that is now see more
clearly as compelling".
Chairman of the Caribbean
Community Sub-Committee on
Cricket Governance, Prime Minister
Dr Keith Mitchell of Grenada has
called for an urgent meeting with
the WICB to discuss the imple-
mentation of the recommendations
from the Panel.
During a meeting in Grenada
earlier this year between Caricom
Prime Ministers and WICB, led by
President Dave Cameron, the
regional body had given a commit-
ment that the recommendations
would be implemented.
"The university has an open
communication channel to the
leadership of the WICB and has
reason to believe that they are ready
for dialogue with CARICOM in
respect of review and reform. We
pray however, that it is now seeing
the way to implement the more
far-reaching recommendations of
the Patterson and Barriteau reports,"
"The time has come. There is
an opportunity for favourable result
to this end. The UWI places itself
officially at the disposal of CARI-
COM and the WICB and joins with
the Hon PJ Patterson and Chairman
Mitchell, and all stakeholders, to
participate in the formal reform

CENTURION---West Indies T20 all-
rounder Kieron Pollard was influ-
ential in the field as Cape Cobras
romped to a five-wicket victory
over Dolphins in South Africa s
Ram Slam T20 yesterday.
Pollard, who picked up just one
wicket for 32 runs, took two catches
including a crucial one to dismiss
the prolific Kevin Pietersen for an
enterprising half century, to help
restrict Dolphins to 148 for nine in
their 20 overs.
Pietersen helped himself to six
fours and three sixes as he blasted
a 35-ball 59 after Dolphins opted to
bat at Centurion. His latest score
takes his tally for the season to 364
runs following scores of 115*, 100*
Pietersen received little support
as Wayne Parnell grabbed four for
20 including the wicket of Pollard s
countryman Dwayne Bravo, who
was caught without scoring, from
the delivery that followed Pietersen s
demise. Bravo picked up a wicket
for 35 runs but Cobras sauntered to
the target, reaching 152 for five with
two balls remaining.

the US went 1-0 ahead.
"When you are down, the crowd needs to
get behind you. You see it all around the world
and on that day the crowd did not spur us
on. Hopefully now the fans can break that
habit and can really get behind this team in
our matches," Maurice appealed.
"Seeing that this is World Cup qualifier, we
will certainly look to avenge what happened
"It is still a vivid memory. It was special
time in all of our lives including myself and
teammates. We were that close. With some-
thing like that, based on the experience we
have now, if we have to relive it or do it again,
there are a lot things that will be done dif-
The US team trained at Larry Gomes Sta-
dium yesterday morning while T&T trained
at the Hasely Crawford Stadium main field
in the evening following a recovery session in
the morning on the training pitch.
"Everyone s healthy and that s a big thing
for us this time and of course the recovery
from the game in Guatemala is also critical,"
coach Stephen Hart revealed.
"Now we will switch our focus and our
preparation will be more game specific for
Tuesday s match."
National team defender Radanfah Abu Bakr
spoke yesterday about the team s tenacity,
particularly in the back line.
"This stems from a lot belief and cama-
raderie within the squad. We fight and play
for each other at every point," Abu Bakr said.
"The entire squad looks out for each other
both on and off the field and it shows on the
pitch. We are all there for each other, pulling
each other together and keeping each other
concentrating all the time," he said.
"We d like to see that in the people of T&T
as well. And when we go out there on Tuesday,
we d like to feel the love. We all know what
the home crowd does to us as an opposing
team in the way they support their team when
we travel, so it s the same way we would like
to feel the love at home.
