Lara likely to miss Stanford series

July 9, 2006

Brian Lara,the West Indies cricket captain, is doubtful for the inaugural Stanford 20/20 tournament, which bowls off on Tuesday in Antigua.

Lara will be away on business in London during the period of the tournament. However, two other players who represented West Indies in the recently-concluded Test and ODI series against Zimbabwe and India, skipper Daren Ganga and Denesh Ramdin, have indicated to chief selector Dudnath Ramkessoon that they are available for the competition.

Dwayne Bravo, who also represented the regional side against Zimbabwe and India, will be unavailable. Bravo is in England for his debut season as a professional with Kent in the English County Championships.

Dave Mohammed, the left-arm spinner, is also out of the limited overs tournament. He has been included in the West Indies A team to tour England later this month.

A 15-member T&T team left on Friday for Antigua to take part in the official opening ceremony at the Sticky Wicket restaurant yesterday evening.

Shazan Babwah, a middle-order batsman, will sit in for skipper Ganga in the meeting of captains.

The T&T team will return home tomorrow after taking part in a friendly practice match against Antigua today at the Antigua Recreation Ground. Ramkessoon said the team for the competition will be finalised on July 16.

T&T will start their campaign on July 25 against the winners of the Cayman Islands and Bahamas match.

Let's hope he could play. This would be an awesome experience not just for him but also for many cricket fans. It will also do the tournament good having such a great batsman like him in the tournament.
