Zouks coach banking on team effort
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
Coach of St Lucia Zouks, Stuart Williams, says he is banking heavily on team effort as his franchise prepares to launch its campaign in the fourth edition of the HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) today.
Zouks are due to open their season against Trinidad and Tobago Knight Riders (TKR), the defending champions who beat former title holders, Barbados Tridents, to secure the crown last year.
Like the five other franchises in the tournament, the Zouks are lined with a number of international stars as well as some of the leading players in the region.
"I don't want to single out anyone," said Williams.
"(I am) expecting a lot out of the team to include Shane Watson, Michael Hussey, better known as Mr Cricket, David Miller and Morne Morkel. (I am) Also looking forward to great play from Johnson Charles and AndrE Fletcher".
The Castries-based outfit will be hoping for an encouraging start when they play TKR at the Queen's Park Oval before taking on St.Kitts and Nevis Patriots at Warner Park on Sunday.
