CARICOM CONGRATULATES TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO ON
(CARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, greater Georgetown,
Guyana) The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) extends
hearty congratulations to the Trinidad and Tobago
cricket team on its excellent performance in the
Champions League Twenty/Twenty cricket tournament.
The exhilarating performances rekindled hope in
West Indies cricket and reminded spectators around
the world of the panache associated with West Indies
cricket at a time when the game in the Region is
traversing a difficult path. The team’s
accomplishments demonstrated that our cricketers can
more than hold their own with the best in the world
given the fact that most of the other teams in the
tournament comprised of proven players at the
highest level of the game.
The consistency, discipline, team work and
leadership displayed are a tribute to the team, its
management and the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board
and are a fine example of what can be achieved when
these elements are blended together.
Captain Daren Ganga and his men have certainly
made West Indians proud once again of their
cricketers’ prowess and for that alone they deserve
our praise and thanks.
