We believe in our ability: Ganga
Wednesday 21 September 2011

Riding high in the CLT20 qualifiers, Trinidad & Tobago captain Darren Ganga is confident that his side can make a positive impact after qualifying for the main tournament.

"As a captain, you are always pleased with a victory like this. It was a convincing victory from the very first ball. We laid good foundation for this victory. It is really heartening to see batting come together," Ganga told reporters after his side defeated Leicestershire by 51 runs to qualify for the main stage.

"It was not assailable total in these conditions again we set the game up in the first six to eight overs. It was really good to dominate a team like this."

"We just want to focus playing one game at a time. We came to play eight matches. We played here two, got four matches in the preliminary round. I don't want to sound overconfident but we believe in our ability. We believe in our style of Twenty20 cricket and we will continue playing to our strength," said Ganga.

The captain of the Caribbean team said they were looking forward to play against Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. "We will rise to the occasion. We think that we are prepared as a team. To beat these guys will be a big feather in our cap. I am sure we are very motivated for these encounters."

"It is a weird sort of situation because both were players in our team," he said about Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, who are playing for MI and CSK respectively.
