Trinidad and Tobago all-rounder Kevon Cooper will add further strength to an already dominant force in local cricket when he returns to the Queen's Park Cricket Club line-up for the 2013 season.
Cooper, who left Queen's Park to join T&TEC Sports, who were promoted to the Premier Division for the 2011 season, says the move back is just what he needs to take his game further.
The 23-year-old all-rounder who made a name for himself playing in the Indian Premier League, the Sri Lanka Premier League and the Bangladesh Premier League in 2012, confirmed that he will line up with an already star-studded Parkites outfit alongside West Indies players Dwayne Bravo, Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard. "I am back at Queen's Park," Cooper told the Express during a training session with the national team at Sir Frank Worrell Development Centre, in Couva on Thursday.
"I think it is a good decision to return to the club (Queen's Park) and I think it is time for me to concentrate on my cricket some more and spend some extra time and put in the hard work and I think Queen's Park is the right place for me to do that," he said of the move. Cooper is also looking forward to being back with the club as they hunt another clean sweep of domestic titles in 2013.
Queen's Park have been unstoppable over the last two seasons, winning the T&T Cricket Board Premier Division two-day competition, the Premiership T20 tournament and the Sunday League 50 over competition in 2011 and 2012.
In 2013, they will be chasing an unprecedented "triple treble" and Cooper is eager to be part of it. "They (Queen's Park) welcomed me back and I am very happy to be there and I am looking forward to the season next year," Cooper added.
