Trinidad And Tobago 5 Seek To Play In Windies Colors Again

Windies backsliding and Trinidad and Tobago players Dwayne and Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, and Lendl Simmons will seek to don the Windies maroon colors once again.

The five former Windies players have made themselves available to play in the upcoming Cricket West Indies Super50 tournament according to a statement from the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board.

The statement noted that Dwayne Bravo would be the vice-captain of the Red Force, which will be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin.

All five players will be positioning themselves for a call-up to play for the West Indies in the 2019 World Cup in England.

The Red Force has also included fast bowler Ravi Rampaul as part of their team. Rampaul last played for West Indies in November 2015.

The rapprochement between the players and the board has come after prolonged talks.

In order to accommodate players that ply their cricket skills overseas, the board has shifted their schedule for the Super50 from February 2019 to October this year.

Cricket West Indies CEO Johnny Grave has reportedly argued that the Super50 is a means of allowing the players to earn their way back into the West Indies team.

Courtney Browne, the Chairman of Selectors, has also endorsed this move.
