Bidaisee to captain TT U-19s

News day / Five players were unavailable for selection for the Regional Under-19 tournament due to international duty.

Keagan Simmons, Te-shawn Alleyne, Matthew Patrick, Cephas Cooper and Kirstan Kallicharan will be on duty with the West Indies Under-19 team for the tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

“I am pretty elated on being Trinidad and Tobago Under- 19 captain because of all the hard work I have put in over the years,” said the 17 year old. “Being my first time at the helm, I am looking to incorporate both the experience I possess as well as my humble temperament on and off the field,” he added.

The Queen’s Royal College student is adamant that the team will thrive in St Kitts despite missing five key players due to the abundance of talent in the squad.

Batting all-rounder Saiba Batoosingh is the only player from last year’s tournament to return to the team.

“I have been amongst a lot of new younger players and I don’t think inexperience would be much of an issue. It is just a matter of self belief and I will be more than willing to be a positive influence in whatever way possible,” said Bidaisee.

The Calcutta Sports Club player added: “Despite the five guys being away, there is still a lot of talent in the squad and once we click as a team I think we could pull off winning the tournament.”
