Suffice it to say—I’m Trini and support the Trinbago Knight Riders, though not as “viciously” as some. One cannot ignore the exceptional turnaround of the Barbados Tridents and the brilliance of the Guyana Amazon Warriors and their record-breaking 24-year-old batsman, Brandon King.
I see cricket as the ultimate unifying event both in T&T and the region. After all, it’s franchise cricket, with players from every island scattered throughout the CPL teams. The spirit of sportsmanship ought to precede all-out competition. I’m sure that all of Jamaica jumped for joy when their Brandon King broke the CPL T20 batting record for the Guyanese Amazon Warriors. Isn’t that the true spirit of the game?
