C’BEAN GREEN LANTERN CORPS – Trinidad and Tobago players presented with magnificent Stanford 20/20 championship rings

“In brightest day, in blackest night,
no evil shall escape my sight!
Let those who worship evil’s might,

beware my power.. Green Lantern’s light!”
Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern
[1943, credited to Alfred Bester]

The players and management of the Stanford 20/20 Tournament 2008 winning Trinidad and Tobago team were just presented with very cool championship rings resembling the Green Lantern Corps of comic-book fame…

At a gala ceremony at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Port of Spain each member was presented with a personalized gold and diamond ring for their triumph in this year?s Stanford 20/20 Tournament.

?Trinidad and Tobago delivered an outstanding performance in 2006 when they were narrowly beaten in Guyana in one of the most exciting cricket matches of all time. The teamwork and dedicate demonstrated in the 2008 Stanford 20/20 Tournament earned them these rings which I am delighted to present to them this evening as a mark of their exceptional performance,? Sir Allen Stanford, originator of the Stanford 20/20 Tournament said.

The stunning rings are made of 10k gold and feature twenty 2pt diamonds. Each diamond represents one of the twenty teams that participated in the glittering single elimination tournament which has revived tremendous interest in cricket in the Caribbean since its inception in 2006.

Each ring reads ?Stanford 20/20 Champions? on the top, carries the Stanford 20/20 2008 logo along with a replica image of the Stanford 20/20 Trophy and is engraved with each recipient?s name on the inside.

In the final of the multimillion dollar regional tournament, played on January 24 at the Stanford Cricket Ground in Antigua, Trinidad and Tobago beat Jamaica by nine wickets to win the top prize of US$1m and the title of regional 20/20 champions.

This is the list of the full Trinidad and Tobago squad who were presented with Stanford 20/20 championship rings:

Daren Ganga (captain), Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Browne, Mervyn Dillon, Rayad Emrit, Sherwin Ganga, Richard Kelly, Ahmed Mohammed, Dave Mohammed, Jason Mohammed, William Perkins, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Lendl Simmons, David Williams (coach), Kelvin Williams (coach), Omar Khan (manager), Gerald Garcia (fitness trainer).
