PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):

The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) is demanding answers after The Red Force crashed to their second straight defeat of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Professional Cricket League at Queen's Park Oval on Monday.

Red Force suffered an innings and 10-run loss to leaders Guyana Jaguars despite a responsible half-century from Akeal Hosein in the fourth round of competition. TTCB president Azim Bassarath says T&T's losing trend cannot continue and that an executive meeting has been called to discuss the problem. The meeting was scheduled for last night.

"I want to let you know that I and my executive are not happy with the performance of the team," said Bassarath.

Starting the final day needing 294 to make the visitors bat again, T&T were dismissed for 234 in the lead-up to the scheduled tea time.

"We are going to meet with the management of the team and try and get every single player involved in that meeting, so we can find out what is going wrong with our national senior team," he said.

"We have never performed this badly for the past seven or eight years, and I think that it is time that we take the bull by the horn and do what is necessary to ensure that we get the best out of our players."
