Trinidad and Tobago Red Force held to a draw against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua last week.
In that match, captain Darren Bravo scored two centuries in both innings. There he scored 100 runs in 229 balls in the first innings and scored a century in 153 balls in the second innings.
Trinidad and Tobago Red Force coach David Furlong praised the efforts of captain Bravo as well as the efforts of the other players.
“Bravo is happy and he enjoying his game and he is back in the space he was in years ago and he led from the front and batted through both innings and created partnerships and I think some of the other batsmen are taking a page out of his book.”
“The captain scored two hundreds but the other guys got some good performances as well; Bryan Charles, Khary Pierre and Terrance Hinds got some wickets and it is good to see everybody getting involved and doing well.”

“We took a decision to go in with only two seamers in the second game. Maybe having someone like a Shannon Gabriel with his sheer pace could have helped us a bit.”
“Looking at the points table, we are third now but Barbados are second and they have six bowling points compared to our 1.6 and they are three points ahead of us.”
“But I believe once we can win games, that we will negate those fast-bowling points so the last three games will be very important for us.”
The third round will resume on March 15 and run until April 1 for the final three rounds, after which the champions will be crowned and presented with the Hedley Weeks Trophy.
The remaining matches will be played at Brian Lara Academy, Taroba, Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain and Diego Martin Sports Complex in Trinidad.
