There will be two groups of teams, with Group A playing in Trinidad, and Group B in Barbados. The semifinals and final will be staged in Barbados.

Trinidad and Tobago, which is in Group A, will play their first match on Oct. 3 against the Windward Islands at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The other match will involve Canada against Windies B at the Brian Lara Stadium in South Trinidad.

A total of 12 teams will be taking part in the tournament.

Returning to the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force are Darren Bravo, who has been out of the national team for a long while, and his brother Dwayne Bravo, who is returning after a three-year absence.

The Red Force, led by wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin, has been the most successful team in the history of the competition and is the favorite to cop the title.

All the top players from Trinidad and Tobago have made themselves available for selection with the hope of getting selected to the squad for the World Cup in England in 2019.
