Summary

  • AZIM BASSARATH, president of the T&T Cricket Board has strongly defended the national selectors and the Red Force senior men’s team from criticism following their disappointing results in the just concluded Regional Four-Day Tournament.
  • Speaking at the annual prize-distribution function of the South East Zone of the TTCB on Saturday in Princes Town, Bassarath took aim at comments made by former national captain Daren Ganga, and manager of the Queen’s Park Cricket Club team Jeffery Guillen.
  • “Instead of looking for scapegoats and ascribing blame Ganga should instead see the bright prospects that these young, talented players hold for the future of T&T cricket.
  • Bassarath also responded to comments made in the Guardian newspapers recently by Guillen who, like Ganga also slammed the national selectors and called for the heads of TTCB officials.
  • That is not the fault of the selectors, or the Cricket Board,” said Bassarath.
