The Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) will be changing the format under which they play their League games during the next season in 2019. They have decided, in their wisdom, to play over three consecutive days per game. Theoretically, it is a good idea but practically, there are some dangers involved which could defeat the very purpose for which it is intended.
Azim Bassarath, president of the TTCB, says: “….because when you look at domestic local cricket, we are not competing effectively at the regional level and that is a major concern to the TTCB.”
He goes on to say, “What we are hoping to do also, we are hoping that the Premiership 1, the League games will be played on the Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday, consecutive days, so that the players will play longer cricket that will really propel them to compete at a much better level in the four-day tournament.”
