With the 2013 Champions Trophy set to bowl off next week, Sports Beat, TVG’s premier sports programme, will relive the 2004 tournament, which was won by the West Indies under Brian Lara’s leadership.
Like 2004, this year’s competition will also be held in England.
On tonight’s programme, which will be aired immediately after the Evening News on TVG Channel 28, moderator Avenash Ramzan will present a detailed review of the 2004 final, including highlights of the heroic partnership between Barbadians Ian Bradshaw and Courtney Browne that sealed a sensational two-wicket win over England at The Oval.
Man-of-the-Series in the 2004 tournament, Ramnaresh Sarwan, is also part of the programme as he looks ahead to West Indies’ chances this year via a WICB Media audio interview.
Several Guyanese will also share their views on West Indies’ chances this time around, as well as the appointment of Dwayne Bravo ahead of regular captain Darren Sammy ahead of what is dubbed the “mini World Cup.”
