TTCB To Discuss Logie's Future
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
David Williams is one of the candidates being considered as a possible replacement for current Trinidad & Tobago Red Force head coach Gus Logie.
The Trinidad Guardian said that Williams, the former T&T and West Indies wicketkeeper, as well as former national coach, could replace Logie, because of the Red Force's results in the WICB Regional 4-Day Tournament.
The Guardian said some members of the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB) executive are in favour of Williams because he was successful with the national team between 2006 and 2011.
But Patrick Rampersad, the second vice-president of the TTCB, said Logie was still strongly favoured for the position.
"We have had no discussion as far as Gus Logie is concerned," Rampersad told the Guardian. "As far as I know, Gus is still the man in charge of the team, and he will be working with the players as they prepare for the Regional Super50 Tournament.
"We have had no discussions as far as removing Gus from his position.
"We are all disappointed over the results we have gotten in the first-class tournament and we are about looking to continue to put things right for the team."
TTCB officials will meet with Logie and the Red Force's management in the coming days to discuss his side's performance this season.
After starting the season with great promise and a comfortable win over Windward Islands Volcanoes, the Red Force sunk to their third defeat of the season two Mondays ago, when the Guyana Jaguars crushed them by 10 wickets at the Guyana National Stadium.
They are now last at the halfway stage in the six-team tournament on 35.6 points, heading into the long break in the season for the Christmas and New Year's holidays, plus the Regional Super50.
