Amir Jangoo

Jangoo, a local boy who has shown promise with his batting skills in youth cricket, was a part of TKR's title-winning campaign last year. The left-hand batsman has also kept wickets for T&T, and would be looking forward to making his mark for the defending champions this season.

The 22-year-old is one of the 11 local boys in Trinbago Knight Riders’ squad for this year’s Caribbean Premier League.

Born in Saint James, on the outskirts of Port of Spain, Jangoo grew up playing cricket, going on to represent Windies’ Under-17 and Under-19 sides over the years.

In his 15 first-class appearances so far, Jangoo has scored 731 runs at an average of 27.07. In List-A cricket, the wicketkeeper-batsman has 611 runs in 27 matches.

In the lead up to this year’s CPL, Jangoo was seen in action for Bravo XI in The Selector Fan Cup match at Queen’s Park Oval. He is the other keeper in the squad alongside the experienced Denesh Ramdin.


Health Minister Terrence Deyal­singh has appeared on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah, addressing controversial claims made by Trinidad-born American rapper Nicki Minaj about the Covid-19 vaccine.
