Red Force aim to end on high
KINGSTON – Manager of Trinidad and Tobago Red Force Roland Sampath says he has given his charges instructions to finish the inaugural Professional Cricket League (PCL) on a high after rebounding from a string of losses in the tournament.
The Red Force halted a four-game losing slump by crushing Jamaica Franchise by 179 runs inside three days at Sabina Park on Sunday.
The Red Force will be seeking a revenge win against Windward Islands Volcanoes and hoping to deny Guyana Jaguars victory in the second round, among their remaining matches.
“I would like to see us try to win as many games as possible getting back and fight the Windwards here at home first up,” said Sampath.
“Then we gonna come up against the in-form Guyana who are gearing for revenge after we humiliated them in the Regional 50 overs (tournament) and our last match is against the Leewards”.
Red Force 178 run win against Jamaica came after two heavy defeats in their opening games against the Windward Islands Volcanoes and Barbados Pride.
They are now fifth-placed on 47 points after winning only their second game of the PCL campaign.
“So if we can finish middle of the pack – at the end of the last game we were second from the bottom – that would be a great finish. Also I would like to see some of the guys achieve their personal goals,” said Sampath. (CMC)
