  1. Sir Charles Brian Lara has matured into a most accomplished diplomat renewing his friendship and liking with Cricket India by visiting them in his home town, POS at the Queen;s Park Oval. I appreciated the warmth and adoration that the Indian team members showed to him and this is good for cricket. Lara is synonymous with T&T in India and whenever our nationals visit India and the Indians get to know these visitors the first question is all about Lara- nothing else matters. Cricket has built many a bridge between India and T&T and this is good for our growing bilateral relations as well as cultural interface. Thank you Indians for honouring the Prince of Port of Spain that we appreciate to the max and please include him in the 2023 IPL .
