PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad – The Leeward Islands and Trinidad and Tobago will seek their first victory in the NAGICO Super50 competition when they take on each other at Shaw Park on Wednesday.
ESPN Caribbean will present live, exclusive coverage of the region’s elite One Day International (ODI) tournament, the NAGICO Super50, from January 30 until February 16 from Trinidad and Tobago. The matches held in Trinidad will air live from 12:50 p.m. (EST) on the ESPN Caribbean, ESPN3.com and ESPN 2 Caribbean television networks and on ESPN Play (www.espnplay.com) — ESPN’s multiscreen live and on-demand broadband service.
Trinidad and Tobago suffered a 28 run defeat to Barbados on Sunday in their Zone B opener, and hosts will be hoping to rebound from the setback.
In their opener on Saturday, Leeward Islands were beaten by 160 runs by the Combined Campuses and Colleges, with only three batsmen managing to get into double figures.
Despite their poor showing in the opening game, T&T’s captain Dwayne Bravo is taking them lightly.
“We are not going to take them lightly,” Bravo said on the www.trinidadexpress.com. “It is a cricket game and we have to respect every opposition.
“I know definitely they will want to rebound and whenever any team plays against Trinidad and Tobago, they raise their standard so we expect a better performance from Leewards’ team.”
