THE injury to Dwayne Bravo that kept him out of the 2019 edition of the Hero Caribbean Premier League and saw Kieron Pollard replace him as captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders may have been fortuitous.Pollard had big shoes to fill, as Bravo had led the TKR to back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018.The big West Indies captain, the most experienced T20 player in the history of the format, lost to eventual champions Barbados Tridents in the second qualifier for the competition’s final in 2019.Still, he has retained his position as skipper in the team and has the blessing of his predecessor.CEO of the TKR, Venky Mysore, revealed recently that Bravo, though very successful as captain of the team, had, for a long time, wanted to pass the baton, but he had delayed the action.“The champion DJ Bravo has been coming to me year after year and asking me to give someone else the captaincy because he wants to just concentrate on playing and enjoying the game,” said Mysore.Bravo, who recently came out of international retirement, has also played under Pollard for the West Indies and has lauded his approach to captaincy.“I always told him not until I am ready and that time has come and he is very happy to play under Pollard,” said Mysore.The TKR will open the CPL season against last year’s beaten finalists, the Guyana Amazon Warriors on August 18.“Pollard was kind enough to accept the position to lead the team at the tournament. He said if we wanted him to do it he will and we said that we will be delighted to have him as captain again,” said Mysore.( Sportsmax)
In hopes of intriguing and recruiting potential new members, one leadership fraternity tried to make a statement on Trousdale yesterday.At 11:55 a.m. Thursday, members of Delta Omega Zeta, wearing green and white rush T-shirts, froze simultaneously in various positions on Trousdale: one student on his bike, another crouching down with a camera, another with a cookie halfway to her mouth — and one in a Speedo with “DO(e)Z” painted on his chest.Frozen · A member of the leadership fraternity Delta Omega Zeta, wearing a DOZ shirt, stands frozen in place as students pass by her. – Nathan Gonzalez | Daily TrojanDOZ — a co-ed leadership fraternity founded in the spring of 2008 during President Steven B. Sample’s “Art and Adventure of Leadership” course — has switched to what they call an alternative advertising campaign to boost their presence on campus and recruit a larger pledge class.“We are trying to break out of the rush mold, and we are trying to make noise,” said Bernadette Anat, a junior majoring in public relations. “We’re trying to show that we are different and worthwhile.”The members held their poses for approximately the minutes while other students walked by, heads turning, with some even taking photos or pointing.“The flash mob demonstration was to exemplify the lack of fear to stand out that leaders have,” said Cory Welsh, DOZ communications chair and a junior majoring in communication.In addition to the flash mob demonstration, DOZ has also launched a campus outreach strategy that reaches out to deans, clubs and organizations for personal recommendations of students who excel in student leadership.President Phil Ehret, a senior majoring in psychology, said the group focuses on bringing student leaders together to network and build off of each others’ ideas.DOZ leaders said so far, their tactics have seemed successful: last year, 182 students signed up during the entire rush process. This year, with five events left to go, 195 students have indicated interest.“We still have a week of rush left,” Anat said. “Everything we are doing is really experimental, so there will be some stumbles, but we are working on the foundation of the group.”DOZ’s rush approach stressed individuality; even their T-shirts, which say “A Leader DO(e)Z,” leave a blank for students to fill in their own answers with permanent marker.“[The shirts] have an individual twist,” Welsh said. “Everyone had the ability to write whatever leadership means to them on their shirt.”Angeli Agrawal, an undeclared freshman, said she is considering rushing DOZ after seeing the demonstration.“It was a good campaign to catch people’s attention,” Agrawal said. “I almost ran into one of them. I might check them out now.”The flash mob technique did not appeal to all students, however.Heath Gilad, a sophomore majoring in political science, who walked between the posing DOZ members, said the performance didn’t convince him to rush the fraternity.“Not if I have to do that — it just makes me laugh,” Gilad said.
