Canada series to boost T&T CT20 preparation

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad,  CMC – Trinidad and Tobago will boost their preparation for January’s Caribbean Twenty20 when they take on Canada in a three-match series starting here next month.

The series will bowl off December 13 at Queen’s Park Oval and has been organised by the Canadian Cricket Association which will use the matches to promote their domestic T20 tournament next year.

T&T manager Omar Khan said that with the CT20 bowling off January 6, the series would serve as great preparation for the defending champions.

“This would be good preparation for our guys with the regional T20 tournament upon us,” Khan said. “The boys are looking forward to the matches because a full strength Canadian cricket team will be coming.”

Last year, T&T won the CT20 after beating fellow powerhouses Jamaica in the final of the competition at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

Ironically, they open this year’s tournament against Jamaica at Queen’s Park Oval, as they launch their bid to defend their title.

Khan said there was a possibility T&T’s further match preparation could be further strengthened.

“We have gotten interest from both Barbados and the Windwards who want to come in early to take on our boys before the tournament starts,” he explained.

“The details are yet to be confirmed for this but it will again be another good chance for the boys to get some matches under their belts.”

Next year’s CT20 runs until January 20 with the first round scheduled to be played here and the second round and finals in St Lucia.
