Regional Under-15 Tournament starts July 22 in Jamaica
Published on July 10, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Holders Trinidad and Tobago will start their defence against Windward Islands at the Kensington Cricket Club ground, when the Regional Under-15 Tournament opens on Tuesday, July 22, in Jamaica.

In the other first round matches of the tournament: Hosts Jamaica face Barbados a few miles away at Up Park Camp, the Jamaica Defence Force ground, and Guyana meet Leeward Islands on the other side of the Jamaica capital of Kingston, at the Melbourne Club ground, where the likes of legendary West Indies fast bowlers Michael Holding and Courtney Walsh played in their formative years.

This year, the Regional Under-15 Tournament – in its 19th season – will be contested under a round-robin format, featuring five rounds of 50 overs-a-side matches with the team accumulating the most points being declared champions.

T&T captured the title for the seventh time last year, when it was staged in the south-western Jamaican parish of St Elizabeth, by topping the points table following victories over Windwards, Leewards, Guyana and the home team. Their only loss came against traditional sporting rivals Barbados.

The twin-island republic’s side narrowly edged out the Windwards for the top spot, with Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and the Leewards following.
