Pride looking to continue winning ways
AFTER RECORDING A dominating performance against the Jamaica Scorpions in their opening Professional Cricket League Regional Four Day match, the Barbados Pride is looking to continue their winning ways against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in their second round match this weekend at Kensington Oval.
Nation Sport caught up with the Pride during their final practice session at the Oval this morning where head coach Henderson Springer confirmed they will be looking to ‘win better’. The Pride defeated the Scorpions by ten wickets but had at one stage looked set to inflict a humbling innings defeat on the Jamaicans.
“We plan to do the same thing we did last game but to do it better because we are not only looking to win but to refine our talents and techniques. We want to win better and improve as a team for the long term. We still have a lot of refining to do because there are some guys that are new to the first class competition. Along with winning we would like to improve in some things the next time around,” said Springer.
The Pride will face a rampaging Red Force who are coming off of a big innings and 23 run win over the Leeward Hurricanes at Warner Park, St Kitts. Both the Pride and Red Force are currently tied for second place in the standings with 17 points each. (PG)
