Red Steel looks for revenge today

Saturday, July 25, 2015

The T&T Red Steel will go into battle against the Guyana Amazon Warriors this afternoon, looking to give their fans something to cheer, after all the problems the country underwent yesterday in the face of the prison break in Port-of-Spain.

A huge crowd is expected to show for the second semifinals of the 2015 Hero CPL T20 tournament which will pit the Red Steel against the Warriors with a place in tomorrow’s finals at stake.

Dwayne Bravo’s men lost their last preliminary round match to the Warriors in Guyana but come today he is ready for revenge. “They were all saying that the Tallawahs would have defeated us in this match because they are afraid to meet us on home turf. We have dealt with them already here and we are going to do it again this season. The boys are really confident, it is going to be a tough battle but we want to give our fans something to cheer about.

“The battle between the two teams is always a good one and this time around it is expected to be the same. Darren (Bravo) is in good form and we are hoping that he and the other batsmen come good for us and give the bowlers something to work with. We have the best bowling attack in the competition and we are going to come hard at the Warriors.

Who ever wins this clash will play Barbados tomorrow at the same venue at 4.30 pm.
