TKR promise “aggressive cricket”
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
Defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) are promising "aggressive cricket" when they start the defence of their Caribbean Premier League (CPL) title at the Queen's Park Oval today.
TKR are playing on home turf against St Lucia Zouks as the curtain raises on the fourth staging of the HERO CPL which by all accounts promises to be a cliffhanger affair that runs until August 7
"It's what we expect from the fans! We saw last year that the noise was electric, the support was just brilliant," said TKR's coach Simon Helmot.
"I think the fans of Trinbago Knight Riders can expect us to play aggressive cricket, exciting cricket, and cricket that they want to come and watch. Hopefully, they see winning cricket".
TKR are bidding for a repeat of the title they won last year when they defeated former cham-pions Barbados Tridents in the finals.
The Port-of-Spain-based outfit boasts the likes of the Bravo brothers, Captain Dwayne and Darren, who will be available for several matches before his departure for West Indies Test duties against the visiting Indian team.
Their line-up is also bolstered by the presence of New Zealand superstar Brendon McCullum and prolific South African batsman Hashim Amla.
