West Indies Under-19s start pre-World Cup camp
Published on January 24, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The West Indies Under-19 team started their camp in Barbados on Wednesday as they get ready for next month's start of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

The 15 players are under the guidance of longstanding head coach Roddy Estwick, as they intensify their preparations at the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre. As part of the camp they will play a warm-up match against Combined Campuses & Colleges on Saturday afternoon at the 3Ws Oval. CCC will use the match as part of their preparations for the NAGICO Super50 tournament.

“We have to make the most of this camp here as we prepare for the World Cup. The boys know they have to work hard and look to tick all the boxes for what is a very prestigious event on the cricket calendar,” Estwick said.

“What we are aiming for is to peak when we reach the UAE for the tournament – when it really matters. We have to hit the ground running in February and make sure we have the right combinations and chemistry.”

This year’s ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup will feature 16 teams in four groups.

The Windies have been drawn alongside South Africa, Zimbabwe and Canada in Group C. Their opening preliminary match is against the Proteas on Friday, February 14 at the Dubai International Stadium.

The second match is on Sunday, February 16 against Zimbabwe at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The third match is two days later against the Canadians at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery Ground 1.
