Bravo, Narine back for Windwards

Trinidad Guardian article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Darren Bravo and Sunil Narine returns to the T&T national team, as they leave on Thursday to take on the Windward Islands in two T20 matches in Dominica.

The games are scheduled for September 6 and 7 and the team returns on September 8. Over the last weekend T&T drew a two-match rubber with their Guyanese counterparts in Guyana.

Narine and Bravo were both given time off to deal with personal stuff but returns to begin their preparations.

Making way for them are Nicholas Sookdeosingh and Imran Khan. 

T&T is preparing for the Champions League T20 which starts later this month in India.

Manager of the team Omar Khan is happy with the preparations so far.

“So far things have gone well. We had two games on the weekend in Guyana and it was great to see players from both teams play with such intensity.

“We are hoping for more of the same this weekend when we play the Windwards. 

“It was good to see the players gel together and begin this very important phase of the preparations.

“This is our last Champions League and the players are very focussed and committed to performing well.”

T&T Squad: Evin Lewis, Adrian Barath, Nicholas Sookdeosingh, Darren Bravo, Jason Mohammed, Denesh Ramdin, Rayad Emrit, Khesan Ottley, Nicholas Pooran, Ravi Rampaul, Sherwin Ganga, Sunil Narine, Navin Stewart, Shannon Gabriel and Samuel Badree.

Staff: Omar Khan (Manager), David Williams (Coach), Kelvin Williams (Assistant Coach), Oba Gulston (Physio) and Dinesh Mahabir (Video).
