The competition which was started by a small group looking for productive activities for the youths of the St. Joseph community and environs way back in 2005, can now rival even the most professional cricket leagues around the world.

The tournament can now boast of being the first wind ball premier league in Trinidad and Tobago, with the first prize of $10,000. But that is not the main focus of the league. As chairman of the T.M.L Cricket Committee explained.

Former T&T and West Indies youth player Zaheer Ali commended the TML for creating an environment to capture the youths and take them away from the negative activities that have plagued our nation. But he had one request of the organisers.

Preceding the first match, T&T and West Indies players Daren Bravo and Nicholas Pooran entertained the crowd with a few lofty blows.

In the first match of the tournament which is an 8 over per side contest, Al-Gharbi scorpions battled Executive Eagles, with Al-Gharbi batting first and posting 46/4 with a top score of 22 from Tariq Subhan and 10 from Naveed Ali. Bowling for Eagles, Farmann Ali took 1/5 and captain Fazil Baksh with 1/6.

Executive eagles got to the total with ease, with a top score of 16 from Wazim Juman and 15 not out from Riaf Ali.

The tournament continues every Friday and Saturday until mid-May.
