Narine keen on challenge

Tuesday, September 17 2013

TOP TRINIDAD and Tobago off-spinner Sunil Narine is keen on the challenges which will face the national T20 cricket team, dubbed “the Red Force” at the forthcoming Champions League T20 tournament in India.

At a recent function at the Queen’s Park Oval, St Clair, Narine said, “I’ll like to do good for Trinidad and hopefully we can give a good showing of ourselves.

“It’s the last time that Trinidad will probably be in the tournament so everyone is keen to giving a good performance of themselves.”

The 25-year-old, rated atop the world rankings in the T20 format, was asked what areas of his bowling he’s working on.

“Just doing the basics right and continue doing what I have been doing,” Narine replied.

Concerning the team’s expectations, he noted, “I think we’ve always given a good showing of ourselves. It’s just to continue doing the good work that we’ve been doing. And I think the guys are really keen for this tournament.”

And, for himself, “I haven’t really set specific goals but whatever the team requires me to do, I’ll try to do it.”

One of the newer faces on the TT team is wicket-keeper Nicholas Pooran, who made a name for himself at the recently-concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

“It’s a challenge for me going to school and (playing) cricket but my main focus right now is to do my best,” he said.

As far as the Champions League is concerned, “I just want to go there and do the best of my ability, perform and hopefully get a contract somewhere, you never know.”

Pooran has had experience in India, having visited with the Trinidad and Tobago Schoolboys team earlier this year.

“I’ve been to India earlier this year,” he said. “The experience was great, not only cricket-wise but the way the people live.”

A hard-hitting left-hander, he admitted that he will be focusing on consistency, and shot selection, in India.
