Ganga queries Queen's Park dominance on Red Force squad

Thu, May 26, '22


Trinidad & Tobago

FORMER Red Force captain and West Indies opener Daren Ganga is questioning why one club in Trinidad and Tobago gets the majority of the picks on the national men's cricket team.

In the last match, the Red Force played in the 2022 West Indies Four-Day Championship against Leeward Islands Hurricanes, ten players in the starting XI were Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC) members. The match, which Red Force lost by 187 runs, ended on Saturday at the Diego Martin Sporting Complex.

Jason Mohammed, a PowerGen cricketer, was the only player in the starting XI who is not a member of QPCC. Red Force captain Imran Khan, who played for Central Sports this season, contracted covid19 before the match against Hurricanes and was ruled out.

Blackwood hits enterprising ton to anchor Scorpions against Harpy Eagles

Thu, May 26, '22


Regional 4 Day

An enterprising unbeaten 110 from Windies batsman Jermaine Blackwood highlighted a day of mixed fortunes for the Jamaica Scorpions as they ended on 282 for 6 against the Guyana Harpy Eagles in the West Indies Championship, at the Diego Martin Sports Complex, on Wednesday.

After winning the toss and choosing to bat, the Scorpion's batting line-up was rocked early on when Leroy Lugg was sent back to the pavilion, with just 17 runs on the board.  Lugg was caught by Gudakesh Motie off the bowling of Demetri Cameron.  Blackwood and John Campbell then went about repairing the damage and put on a 50-run partnership for the second wicket, but that was brought to an end when Campbell was trapped lbw by Kevin Sinclair.

Estwick urges Pooran to separate batting from captaincy

Wed, May 25, '22


Media Watch

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — West Indies assistant coach Roddy Estwick has urged new white-ball captain Nicholas Pooran to separate his leadership role from that of batsman, in order to ensure he has a clear focus in the upcoming One-Day International (ODI) series against the Netherlands and Pakistan.

The 26-year-old was recently appointed to lead the squad following the abrupt retirement of close friend and fellow Trinidadian Kieron Pollard last month.

Pooran is also one of the white-ball unit’s leading batsmen, a role Estwick said he did not want to be compromised by the player’s leadership responsibilities.

“You have meetings, you have discussions about every [opposing] batsman, about their strengths and weaknesses and the captain will set fields accordingly. Then, it’s up to the player to go execute [the team’s plans],” said Estwick.
