Kowlessar calls for players to be dropped

By KEVIN SUNICH Friday, April 12 2013

SECOND vice-president of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) Lalman Kowlessar feels it is time for some of the national players to be dropped following their humiliating ten-wicket defeat at the hands of Barbados in their regional Four-Day match at the Queen’s Park Oval yesterday.

The home team was bundled out for 109 in their first innings and after dismissing the visitors for 193, they made just 20 more in their second innings being dismissed for 129.

“This was less than a mediocre performance, and I think it is time to tell some of these players where to drop off. I don’t know if they are playing with their heart and soul for Trinidad and Tobago. The cricket board has spent too much money on these players for them to be playing in this manner. They are not delivering the goods and so we should get rid of them and bring in a young bunch of cricketers,” said the TT youth selector.

While TT has been doing well in the 50-overs tournament, leading the standings heading into the semi-finals, Kowlessar said the ultimate is four- days and test cricket. “T20 and 50-overs cricket is not the yard stick to measure cricket rather the four day and test. We want to see them perform at the four day level, but it appears that they are still in the limited overs mode as the match was finished inside of two days,” said Kowlessar.

He said the experienced players in the team are not shouldering the responsibility. “Adrian Barath and Lendl Simmons, they are not doing what they are supposed to do. Skipper Ramdin made a century in the 50 overs match, but he could not stay and bat in the four day match. We have a number of spinners here in TT and these players have Sulieman Benn running through them like if it is athletics,” said the TTCB second vice- president. TT will face Jamaica in the semi-final starting on April 27.
