PORT-OF-SPAIN – Injury has forced Trinidad and Tobago captain Daren Ganga out of the clash with Barbados, in the opening game of the regional first-class Championship which starts on Friday.
He lost the race against time to recover from a hand injury sustained during last month’s Caribbean Twenty20 Championship and has been ruled for the encounter against Trinidad and Tobago’s perennial arch-rivals.
Ganga split the webbing between his thumb and index finger on his right hand and doctors indicated the injury had not healed enough for him to compete.
In his absence, Denesh Ramdin will lead the side as he did during the CT20 final against Hampshire.
“He is expected to be fit for the next match against the Combined Campuses and Colleges CCC at UWI. St. Augustine,” chairman of selectors Dudnath Ramkessoon told CMC Sports.
Ganga’s exclusion is a huge blow for the national side which already will be without five senior players with the Bravo brothers, Dwayne and Darren, Kieron Pollard, Adrian Barath and Ravi Rampaul all on West Indies duty in Sri Lanka.
