Red Force stays in the race

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The T&T Red Force remains in contention to finish in the top three, at least in the 2017 Digicel CWI PCL Regional cricket series, despite being dominated by the Jamaica Scorpions last weekend.

Denesh Ramdin’s men scraped a draw with the help of the elements and are now in third spot on 67.6 points. They still trail leaders Guyana by 28.6 points with four rounds of matches to go. The tournament is still far from decided according to president of the TTCB, Azim Bassarath.

“Our team continues to show that fighting quality and this ensured they came away with a draw despite Jamaica scoring over 500 runs in the last game. We have a young team and they are learning as they go along, so we are hoping that they can still make it to the top. A couple good wins and a slip up with Guyana, or Jamaica can still see this country come away with the honours.” The Guyanese were involved in the first Tied match in the 157-year history of the regional game against the Windwards over the weekend.

In second position is the Jamaican Scorpions, who are just 0.2 points ahead of T&T Red Force on 67.6. Red Force’s next game is against the Barbados Pride at the Brian Lara Academy, where they are yet to win a game. The Red Force bowlers have looked less than penetrative on the flat surface at the Lara Academy and they will be hoping for some assistance, when they game gets going on Thursday at the Southern venue. Pride will also be on the hunt for an outright, as they are languishing in fifth position on 56.8 points.

In fourth position are the Leewards who is on 57 points from six matches and bringing up the tail are the Windwards, who have had a difficult season, failing to win any of their six matches to date.
