Inaugural Limacol CPL T20 finalist Guyana will clash with defending Caribbean T20 Champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in two T20 matches at the Guyana National Stadium Providence on August 30 & 31.
T&T have qualified for the Champions League T20 tournament for the third consecutive year and the two matches against Guyana, the only other Caribbean team to participate in the Champions League, will form a part of T&T’s preparation for next month’s tournament in India.
In an effort to provide the Twin-Island team with the best possible preparation, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) yesterday confirmed that two foreign players have been contracted by Guyana for the two matches that will commence at 20:00hrs on both days.
“I have confirmation that two foreign players will be bought to boost our National team and provide T&T with proper competition as they head to India to represent the entire Caribbean in the biggest club tournament in the world,” a senior GCB member disclosed.
The GCB source, who is in Trinidad for the LCPL semi-finals and final, explained that the names of the pair of players will be known by the end of the LCPL.
Tickets for the showdown between the only two teams went on sale yesterday at several locations across Guyana and cost $1,000 for any Stand including the Party Stand.
On Friday August 30 Universal DVD Club Berbice Titans play DCC Wolverines from 15:00hrs while the next day the second overseas line-up, Suriname Tigers, take on West Demerara Mavericks also from 15:00hrs in the supporting games.
“Guyana will be led by Ramnaresh Sarwan and an all T&T team which will journey to India for the Champions league will want to prove that their Island players are better as a team than the combination put together to represent them in the LCPL.
Only Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, who will represent their Indian IPL teams in the Champions League, are missing from T&T’s team. And this is expected to be two very big matches which should see capacity crowds on both nights,” the GCB official said.
