Captain Helmien Rambaldo said, "After the fantastic experience of winning 4 trophies in quick succession at the end of the 2011 season we have enjoyed a short break and are now keen to get down to work again to prepare for the World Cup Qualifiers. We know we have a tough task ahead but the whole squad is determined to give their all to prepare and with the four coaches we have on board for the preparation we should be able to take their knowledge together with our experiences to form some good game plans. We then have to execute them.
"Already the preparation programme that has been devised is one of the most varied ones I have been involved with and includes a new cricket testing programme which create lots of enthusiasm and competition within the squad and that's what I want," concluded Rambaldo.
