Ricky Mitchell is the lucky winner of four VIP tickets for the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) final at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy which bowls off at 9 pm on Saturday.
The Breakfast Beyond the Boundary with Nescafe initiative took place yesterday and gave Mitchell the opportunity to have breakfast and interact with members of the Trinbago Knight Riders squad at Hilton Hotel. Mitchell, who is a Barrackpore resident, met players Colin Munro, Robert Frylinck and Hamza Tariq and manager Colin Borde. Fifteen lucky winners also won two tickets each to one game in the preliminary stage of the CPL. Contestants had to apply online to win the competition.
Mitchell said it was a privilege to meet the Trinbago Knight Riders members and he is looking forward to the final.
“It was exciting, it was my first time getting to meet the players and it will be my first time going to watch cricket. To meet these foreign players was a good opportunity.”
Mitchell, who is a UWI St Augustine student, believes either the Knight Riders or the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will win the title. Mitchell thanked Nestle for the initiative.
