We did well, says Brooks

IT WAS a year of opportunity for many players with a generally satisfying outcome. 

That sums up the view of Barbados Pride cricket captain Shamarh Brooks, who led his side to second place in the just concluded Digicel Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament.

Guyana Jaguars were the champions, but given all the relevant factors, Brooks believes his side did well.

“This season for us was a trial and error season. We gave a lot of people opportunities . . . to see how they stay at this level. In some instances it paid dividends and [in] some others . . . I guess we may need to go back to the drawing board,” Brooks told NATIONSPORT after his side’s comprehensive victory over the Jamaica Scorpions at Kensington Oval on Sunday.

“I don’t think we did too badly. In our situation we had our Test players coming in and out of the team, while Guyana have been having their team year in, year out, so I think we have done well to come second this season.”

No difficulty

Brooks said he had no difficulty motivating his players to play with the required intensity for the final game despite the championship being already decided. The Pride captain said he has always believed in developing a winning habit.

“I think winning should be a habit and whenever we get a chance to win a cricket game we should make the most of it,” Brooks said.
