ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Double-crown champions Jamaica will face long-standing rivals Barbados at Everest in the opening round of the 3-Day competition in the Regional Under-19 Tournament which opens Tuesday in Guyana.

Hosts Guyana meet Leeward Islands at the Guyana National Stadium and Windward Islands play Trinidad and Tobago at Enmore in the other first round matches of the 3-Day competition.

Two weeks later, the Jamaicans again tackle the Barbadians across town at the historic Bourda Oval, the former international venue located in the heart of the Guyana capital of Georgetown, in the opening round of the One-day competition on August 4.

This year, the Tournament, the marquee tournament for young, regional players, will feature three rounds of three-day matches played contested among the six regional teams with the team accumulating the highest number of points being crowned the Regional Under-19 3-Day champions.

A composite ICC Americas side, featuring the most promising youngsters from ICC Associate and Affiliate members from the Caribbean, North, Central and South America, will join the six territorial teams for the One-day competition which will be played over seven rounds, leading to the Grand Final between the two teams that accumulate the highest number of points.

Jamaica captured the 3-Day title last year in St Kitts, when they finished on 47.9 points to top the points table ahead of Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Windwards, Barbados and Leewards.

They played unbeaten to also collect the One-day title, ahead of Windwards, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, ICC Americas and Leewards.
