Congrats TKR on fete match win

THE EDITOR: The Trinbago Knight Riders are the CPL T20 champs.

Why am I not surprised? Their captain correctly predicted they would play their opponent in the final four times in the tournament. He was right.

The venue was filled to capacity for the big final. Somebody must have laughed all the way to the bank.

If I am to be truthful, I absolutely enjoyed looking at the scantily dressed women wining in a lewd and suggestive manner while allegedly advertising certain products. What that has to do with cricket I know not, but who cares.

And we celebrated Halloween early, dressing up from captain to cook. While we were in a modern-day version of The Emperor’s New Clothes, England won the Test series, beating a second-string West Indies team.

Winning these fete matches does nothing to improve West Indies cricket, sorry to say. The batting techniques, hitting across the line, is all wrong. Is this the type of cricket we want? Fete-match cricket?

For what it is worth, congratulations to the Knight Riders. Brings back memories of Kerry Packer’s circus in the 70s.
