PowerGen start T20 defence against Preysal

PowerGen boasts a strong line-up which includes hard-hitting opening batsman Nicholas Sookdeosingh, Guyanese batsman Rajindra Chandrika as well as the experienced spin pair Varoon Samaroo and Kavesh Kantasingh.

Preysal have a young side with some promising players which includes West Indies Under-19 all-rounder Bryan Charles.

In the feature match in Group A, last year’s runner-up Queen’s Park Cricket Club take on Seenath’s Auto Bamboo Sports at Queen’s Park Oval with Kieron Pollard expected to take the field for the hosts.

The T20 competition will feature two groups of six teams each with the defending champions seeded in Group B and last year’s runner-up seeded in Group A. The teams will play each other once in a round robin phase with the top four in each group advancing to the quarterfinals.
