Kieron Pollard, TKR captain said the following “As captain, I’m very excited to have coach Phil with us. We have a great chemistry working together as a pair. We’ve done it in the international scene, and it’s great that we are getting the opportunity to work for TKR. Hopefully, this combination will bring smiles and some exciting results back to TKR.”
Venky Mysore, TKR Team Director added: “We are delighted to have Coach Phil Simmons on board with TKR. He’s highly respected and his knowledge of the local players as well as the foreign players and the younger talent coming through makes him an ideal choice for TKR.”
Trinbago Knight Riders will play their first match of CPL 2023 against St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots at the
Daren Sammy Stadium in St. Lucia on 19 August.
The four-time champions will be looking to bounce back from a very disappointing CPL season last year by their own high standards and this move is clearly a statement of intent by the team. Other teams have also strengthened and the 2023 edition is set to be the most competitive ever.
