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

The 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.

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

The left-handed Hosein carried the fight for the hosts with 64 while Nicholas Pooran made a dashing 47.

Bassarath says every member of the team is expected to attend the executive meeting being convened.

Jaguars remain at the top of the standings on 57 points while the Red Force gained one point to be on 24 overall.
