Coach Williams: Players, myself to blame for team’s dismal campaign


Trinidad and Tobago Red Force coach Kelvin Williams is taking responsibility for the team's last-place finish in the just-concluded Regional Four-Day Championship. However, he also expressed his optimism about the future of the team.

“Overall we played poorly as a team and I definitely will put my hand up and say I am responsible for the team's position, but at the same time the individual players also have to take responsibility for their individual performances,” the coach said after returning from Guyana where the team, led by Denesh Ramdin, fell to an innings and 81-run defeat to champions Guyana Jaguars.

It was the team's fourth straight loss and fifth overall for the 2017-18 season. “All in all it was a very disappointing season for us.

In a nutshell, it was a poor season for us as far performances are concerned,” the coach lamented.
