image is given a positive boost through sport."
"Congrats to the T&T Red Force national cricket
team. There is still the semifinals to play and there are
no guarantees in the world of sport.
"But today's performance by Denesh Ramdin and
his team cant be erased. They provided a much needed
dose of good news and positivity."

eters have arrived in the
Caribbean to play West
Indies in a three-match
One Day International
series starting on Sunday
at Sabina Park, Jamaica.
Coach Katrina Keenan
says her players are on the
hunt for revenge after West
Indies knocked them out
of the ICC Women's World
Cup in February during the Super Six stage.
Trinidadian off-spinner Anisa Mohammed led West
Indies to a 48 run win over New Zealand to advance
to the finals which they lost to Australia.
"We lost to the West Indies in the World Cup, how-
ever, since then, we have had a comprehensive build-
up over the off-season," said Keenan, who, along with
members of the team, arrived in Jamaica on Tuesday.
"We are, therefore, confident in our preparations
and are looking forward to the rematch, which we
hope will end with us coming out on top."
The second game will be played next Tuesday and
the final game next Thursday at the same venue.
Keenan has described the New Zealand women
cricketers, known as the White Ferns, as a strong and
balanced unit. "We have a well-balanced team with
a mixture of experienced players and with the likes of
Suzie Bates, who is ranked as the number one in the
ODI batting rankings, Nicola Browne, Suzie Bates, and
Amy Satterhwaite," she explained. CMC
