Darren Sammy hit 50 off 28 balls to lead the West Indies to a thrilling three wicket victory over Australia in a World Cup warm-up match on Sunday.
Cedenio won the 400 metre dash at the 2015 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Diamond League in Stockholm, Sweden with a time of 44.97 seconds.
He also took home gold in the 4x400m relay and silver in the 400m men's final at the Pan American Games.
Borel became the first woman and only the sixth Trinidad and Tobago athlete in history to strike gold at the Pan American Games.
Till Shamar Springer rolled his chest rhythmically, there was Chris Gayle and co. galloping to the Gangnam Style, having won their maiden World T20 crown, their first world title in 33 years.
Four years on, the core of that 2012 batch remains intact. But there are many questions Darren Sammy and his band of merry men will have to answer if they are to repeat the 2012 feat. The biggest weakness for West Indies is a batting line-up that is powerful on paper, but low on returns and inconsistent in form.
Only Gayle, their best batsman, emerges unscathed. In his 43 T20I innings, Gayle has scored 1406 runs at an average of 35.15 and a strike rate of 142.60. Contrast that with Marlon Samuels, who was the Man of the Match in the 2012 final, but has scored just one half-century in his last 12 T20I innings. He has not played any T20 cricket since the Bangladesh Premier League last November.
Denesh Ramdin is the other batsman who is struggling. If not for his wicketkeeping, he might have found it hard to retain his place. In 34 T20I innings, he has managed 385 runs at an average of 16.73, which is the lowest among all wicketkeepers who have played 20 or more T20I innings. The other specialist batsmen, Johnson Charles (22 T20I innings, 463 runs at 21.04), Andre Fletcher (24, 427 at 19.40) have been equally inconsistent.
West Indies' biggest strength remains their quartet of allrounders: Dwayne Bravo, Sammy, Carlos Braithwaite and Andre Russell. These four can destroy bowling attacks mercilessly as Sammy showed in the second warm-up match against Australia in Kolkata which West Indies won. In the absence of Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard, these four men will also take the responsibility of leading the bowling attack.
As Sammy has been saying, this tournament is the last chance to win big. For him. For Gayle. For Bravo. For Samuels. And, probably, even Russell, who is battling knee problems. These men have at times been labelled bandits for choosing lucrative T20 leagues over representing West Indies. Will they now help West Indies loot the ransom at the World T20? If so, it would be worth watching how they attempt to outdo the "Springer roll".
Sachin Kumar won his second T&T Open Golf title when he beat Clint Alfred in a dramatic play-off on Sunday at Moka.
Kumar holed a double-bogey putt on the first play-off hole after Alfred missed a wicked downhill putt on the 18th green at St Andrew’s Golf Club.
Alfred dodged a bullet after hitting his tee shot on the play-off hole out of bounds.
However, the 2014 champion Kumar then hit his approach shot out of bounds to hand Alfred a reprieve.
On the green, Alfred was unable to hole a downhill putt, while Kumar sank a five-foot putt from below the hole to claim his second title in three years.
Both men ended tied on 301, with Kumar shooting a final day 74 to Alfred’s 78.
Sol Joanni was third, five shots behind.
Last year’s champion James Johnson did not defend his title this year.
Ysabelle Lawrence strolled to a commanding victory in the women’s championship division.
Thomas Bannon (336) won the First Flight title by one shot over John Henry (337)
Zico Correia grabbed the headlines on the final day, winning the Second Flight with a final day 83.
The 11-year-old is the youngest person ever to win the T&T Open Second Flight title.
Carlos Beckles won the Seniors title by three shots over Reynold Deonath, while
Fabian “Rocker” Lee Foon won the Super Seniors title with a nine shot victory over Tyrone Leong.
Trinidad and Tobago Head Coach Stephen Hart announced his Final 22-man Squad for the upcoming 2018 CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Matches against St Vincent and the Grenadines on March 25th and 29th.
Hart made the disclosure following T&T’s 2-2 draw with Grenada on Saturday night in St George’s.
His selection signals the return of Kevin Molino to the national team following the player’s lengthy lay off due to injury while former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and England National Under 17 captain John Bostock has also been included as well as Dutch-based starlet Levi Garcia. Bostock’s grandmother is Trinidadian which makes him eligible to play for T&T. Born in Kamberwell, England, the 24-year-old former Crystal Palace player already possesses a Trinidad and Tobago passport.
Missing from the squad due to injury are Cordell Cato, Radanfah Abu Bakr, goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams and Keron Cummings.
The squad, which will be captained by Kenwyne Jones, includes six players who were involved in Saturday’s match in Grenada including goalkeepers Marvin Phillip and Adrian Foncette, Central FC midfielder Sean De Silva and DirecTV W Connection trio Daneil Cyrus, Jomal Williams and Shahdon Winchester,
