THE TRINIDAD and Tobago Red Force will be missing a number of experienced players including left hander Darren Bravo, when the Cricket West Indies Regional Four-Day tournament bowls off on Thursday.
Bravo, along with a number of other TT players, will compete in the Bangladesh Premier League T20 tournament from November 3 to December 12. Therefore, the Red Force will depend on a young team in the early stages of the tournament.
Bravo was not allowed to represent West Indies neither the TT Red Force after a conflict with Cricket West Indies. In November 2016, Bravo was suspended from the West Indies and the TT Red Force after he called CWI president Dave Cameron a "big idiot" on Twitter due to differing views on Bravo's West Indies contract.
Bravo and Cameron both apologised for the unfortunate incident in July 2017, and Bravo was free to represent West Indies and the TT Red Force again. However, Bravo will play in the BPL instead leaving the team with a youthful batting line up.
Some of the other TT players who will compete in the BPL are Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Kevon Cooper and Sunil Narine.
