Barath chomping at bit for Champions League

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Dashing opener Adrian Barath has his eyes on a return to the Club Champions League.

The 20-year-old was a member of the successful Trinidad and Tobago side which played unbeaten to reach the final of last year’s competition, before losing in the final to Australian unit New South Wales Blues.

“We went to the Champions League last year and we want to go back,” the right-hander said emphatically.

“It is a milestone for any team to go to the Champions League. We had a tremendous time last year. It was a great experience playing in front of those huge crowds and it was special the way we performed as a team. It is something every cricketer would love to experience.”

Trinidad and Tobago are the reigning regional Twenty20 champions, after winning the now defunct Stanford T20 tournament back in 2008.

They are also the defending 50-overs champions after winning last October’s President’s Cup but Barath said capturing the upcoming Caribbean T20 would not be easy.

“Our main objective is to win the Caribbean T20 and after that look towards the Champions League,” he pointed out.
