Ramdin pleased to return to Trinbago

News

West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin has joined the Trinbago Knight Riders and says he is very pleased to be playing for his home franchise after a few seasons with the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

The Knight Riders got a massive win in their last match against the Barbados Tridents and they now head to Jamaica to take on Chris Gayle and the Tallawahs.

Ramdin said: "It is good to join the Knight Riders and get a few wins under our belts. It was a very high pressure game against the Tridents, it was the first time we have beaten Barbados on this ground.

"Confidence is high going to Jamaica, they always play good at home. They have some key players, Andre Russell and Kumar Sangakkara, you have to take them out of the game to beat them. Then we go on to St Lucia which is a very good batting track down there."

The Knight Riders are currently in third place on the CPL table and are well placed to qualify but Ramdin feels there are still areas for improvement and with Brendon McCullum set to come back into the side they can get even better.

Ramdin added: "All in all I think the batting has been clicking. There are some areas in the bowling where we can improve, cutting down on the boundary balls.

"So far Colin Munro has done a fantastic job, and Hashim Amla, what can you say about him? He has been magnificent at the top of the order. Hopefully we can have players back, McCullum is keen to go out there and express himself.

"It is very important that you have momentum. The first couple of games TKR didn't have that. It is slowly building up. We haven't played our perfect game yet.

"There is room for improvement in our fielding and we haven't got that big start with the bat. Hopefully we can continue to build right throughout the tournament."
