LAST CHANCE AT REDEMPTION

January 19, 2012

The last time Canada and T&T clashed at the CT20, they played a classic nailbiter which T&T won on the last ball of the match. Canada will be looking for a similar performance with a slightly different result as they look for their first win of the CT20 tournament.

Canada's bats showed signs of revival against Guyana but will need another strong effort  to put up a big score against the tournament favorites. Likewise the bowlers will be looking to make their mark for the first time in the tournament, as they have struggled to take wickets in the tournament. 

Players will be playing for pride as well as spots in the 2012 CWCQ Team that will be named later this month. T&T are in a must win situation as they have yet to clinch a spot in the semi-finals. 

Canadian Head Coach Michael Dighton was pleased with his teams effort in training leading up to the clash with T&T.

"We had another solid trianing session yesterday and the boys are looking forward to the challenge of taking on one of the best T20 teams in the world."

The coach continued and commented on the tournament so far.

"Whilst we showed some improvement during the match with Guyana as compared to the previous games against Leeward and Winward, the opportunity is there for us to put together a more consistent 40 overs of T20 cricket.  It would be great to finish the tournament on a high as we continue to build towards our ultimate goal of qualifying for the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka."
