Barbados Tridents Owner – Dr Vijay Mallya:
1) What are your team’s plans coming together for the upcoming CPL season?
On the field we intend to win by playing good cricket. Our squad features several world class players who can change any game. Working together as a unit is important for our team’s success.
2) Who are your team’s players to watch?
In T20 cricket, any player can be a match winner on his given day. However, with the likes of AB de Villiers, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard and others we feel the Tridents will be a hard team to beat.
3) Which one other player from another franchise are you most excited about watching at CPL 2016?
I’m looking forward to seeing what Brendon McCullum of the Trinbago Knight Riders can do in Caribbean conditions. He is another exciting world-class player who, on his day, can take the game over with the bat and in the field.
4) What makes CPL such an exciting product?
The spirit of the fans, the atmosphere, Caribbean culture fusing with high-paced action-packed cricket. With that formula it is hard to not be exciting.
5) What can fans expect at your home games this year?
Fans will witness an unparalleled experience never seen before in the Caribbean. They’ll have a chance to see their team in new kit and enjoy an improved stadium experience which will draw on their passion for the game. On the field, our team is focused on winning.
6) Describe your team’s distinct traits / values in three words.
Committed to winning!
