  • SHOULDERS TO THE WHEEL

    TWO-TIME champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force will be cautiously confident when they open their defence of the WICB Regional Super50 tournament tomorrow against Windward Islands Volcanoes at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua. Red Force have ruled the Caribbean in limited overs cricket in recent years, but newly-appointed skipper Denesh Ramdin says his team…

  • Bravo left out of WICB list

    Darren Bravo’s participation in the Regional Super50 is still up in the air; but with the tournament set to bowl off this week and the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force preparing to leave for Antigua on Monday, it seems very unlikely that the left-hander will be allowed to play. This after the West Indies…

  • Lawrence the man?

    EITHER Dennis Lawrence or Russell Latapy is likely to be the next Trinidad and Tobago football coach, although Englishman Terry Fenwick still has an outside chance. The Express has been reliably informed a decision is close, possibly by today or tomorrow. But ­contrary to previous reports, the Express understands none of the five candidates…

  • Red Force lose warm-up

    Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC) batsman Nicholas Alexis stroked a measured half-century for the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in a day/night trial match on Wednesday, staking an early claim for a starting spot for next week’s Regional Super50 championship. Ironically, his innings, the highest of the match, came in a three-wicket defeat at…

  • Proteas star de Villiers crosses CPL off 2017 list

    CENTURION, South Africa, Jan 18, CMC – Any hopes Barbados Tridents had of re-signing AB de Villiers for the forthcoming Caribbean Premier League season were dashed when the South African batting star said Wednesday that of all the global Twenty20 tournaments this year, he would only play in the Indian Premier League.

    Trinidad and Tobago Red Force coach Gus Logie has made another appeal to the country’s top players to make themselves available for the local franchise, especially in the four-day format.
