The National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) announced today that it will remain in the Trinbago Knight Riders’ camp, as the local cricket franchise chase history in the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T/20 competition.
TKR are the defending CPL champions and the joint most successful team in the history of competition, along with the Jamaica Tallawahs, who also have two titles. No franchise has ever won back-to-back crowns.
If captain Dwayne Bravo can steer the TKR to triumph again, he will add the two aforementioned records to the trophy.
Susan Worrell, the NLCB marketing and public relations officer, believes her company’s commercial support of the cricket team will help TKR to further highlight Trinidad and Tobago as a hub for sport tourism and positive showcase the two island republic.
“Our continued support for TKR aligns with NLCB’s five main pillars when it comes to national sustainability and local development,” said Worrell. “In addition to community, education, youth and culture, sport is one of T&T’s cornerstones and we hope to once more help TKR showcase the spirit, resilience and inspirational essence of the country.”
NLCB is the governing body for both online and offline gambling and is responsible for Lotto, Play Whe, Pick 2, Pick 4, Fast Cash and Scratch.
