-Says it will successfully defend GT&T 10/10 title
Little was known about them in the softball world before 2011, but excellent leadership from its captain, Amrith Rai and consistent all-round cricket, have, in one year, made Wolf Warriors the team to beat when the Guyana Telephone & Telegraph (GT&T) 10/10 tournament bowls off next month.
The team’s dominance of the competition last year has catapulted them to the top of the list of teams to beat this year and Rai has no doubts in the confidence of the side. He said his side will be looking to become the event’s first consecutive winner since the inauguration of the competition in 2010.
“I would not say that we are preparing; we are already prepared to win this tournament again and we will be going for back-to-back wins. It will be nice if we do that since we know that we’ll be making history,” Rai told Kaieteur Sport in a brief interview yesterday.
To ensure that there is not too much inexperience and stage-freight heading into the mega contest that attracted over 1200 teams last year, Rai informed that they have kept the same team with just one change more than likely. He said that Shiv Persaud, who is overseas, is the only player who is likely to be replaced.
“We have been training and playing well together. We play every week; we even invited some of the teams that will compete in the tournament for practice games. So we are ready,” the Wolf Warriors captain indicated, adding weather has not affected his team’s preparations.
In fact, Rai told this newspaper that they have prepared in all weather conditions because, in his opinion, it gives them a better chance at adopting if such situations arise during the tournament, which is expected to commence on February 18, after registration closes on the 11; Rai indicated that he will be registering the team this weekend.
Rai, a right-handed batsman, said that the team has full support in West Demerara as it comprises players from as far as Parika. “We know our players well; we are champions and we are going to prove that we are the champions this year again,” Rai asserted.
