There was some delightful batting by the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force cricket team, the likes of which I have not seen for many a year! It was the first two days of the first game (January 9–12) in the West Indies (WI) Championship four day match at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba. Their opponents: Jamaica Scorpions!
After winning the toss, Darren Bravo, the newly elected captain of T&T, decided to bat on a docile pitch that wasn’t much help for the bowler.
That should not stop a good bowler from using the atmospheric conditions to assist him in tricking the batsman into a false stroke. It was a windy day with brief showers interrupting play a couple of times on the Friday and at least once on the Saturday.
