Brian Lara will travel to India with the Trinidad and Tobago team for the Champions League Twenty20 tournament, commencing on September 17 in Mohali.
Although not a formal part of the team management, Lara, during his visit to India, will play the dual role of tourism ambassador and mentor for the ‘Red Force’.
The former West Indies skipper said, “I am just going to be there, not a part of management but as a former cricketer. I am willing to lend a hand in any way I can.
“I hope I will have a chance to interact with the guys. I look forward to working with the guys, the management, the captain Denesh Ramdin and all the players,” he said.
The Ministry of Tourism has sponsored the T&T team to help them prepare for the T20 tournament in India.
Ramdin leads the team, which includes Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons and Samuel Badree.
T&T team is all set to leave for the sub-continent on Monday.
