Brathwaite full of Pride
As he prepares to go on the road for the next two matches, Barbados Pride cricket captain Kraigg Brathwaite is maintaining belief in his players to be effective against their competition regardless of the conditions.
Brathwaite expressed this confidence while speaking with the media following his side’s victory by 127 runs over the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Kensington Oval on Sunday.
In the team’s next two matches they will be away to the Trinidad and Tobago Red force and the Guyana Jaguars, but Brathwaite believes his side is equipped to deal with the challenge.
“I know my spinners can do the job and my pacers can do the job as well, so I am confident in the entire team,” Brathwaite said when asked about his side’s ability to adjust to conditions that may be in contrast to those at Kensington, where Barbados hold a perfect home record of three victories.
It sweet revenge for the Bajans after turning the tables on the Volcanoes, who beat them in the first round, but the triumph came in emphatic fashion in a virtually perfect game as Barbados Pride became the first side in this year’s tournament to score the maximum 24 points in a match.
