The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board regrets that the much anticipated clash between the Red Force and the Windies scheduled for June 20 at the NCC has been called off.
Roland Holder, CWI Operations Manager wrote to the TTCB’s CEO indicating that “CWI is unable to approve the WI team playing at the NCC.
The game was agreed on the basis of it being played at the Brain Lara Cricket Academy and that WIPA has not approved of our International team playing at the NCC.”
The BLCA is unavailable at this time as work is being done on the pitch and outfield. In the circumstances the match is being called off.
The TTCB wishes to thank the players for making themselves available for the match in particular Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree, Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo.
Whilst the issue between Bravo and the CWI remains unresolved the TTCB was making every effort to have Bravo participate in this game in an effort to help ease his return back into first class cricket.
The TTCB wishes to also thank the public for their support and hope that in the near future that the fans would have the opportunity to see the best players representing our country once again.
