KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Grenada’s Emmanuel Stuart strolled away with most of the major awards at the awards ceremony for the Windward Islands Under-15 Tournament which ended on Wednesday here.
Among the awards he collected were for the most runs, best wicketkeeper, Most Valuable Player for his team and Tournament MVP.
The diminutive Stuart finished the tournament with the highest aggregate of 349 runs at an average of 69.80 including scores of 87, 81, 66 and 54 not out for the second-placed finishers.
St. Lucia’s Stuart Calderon and Grenada’s Narun Singh captured 13 wickets apiece and were the top wicket-takers in the tournament.
Left-arm spinner Singh snared his wickets at 10.15 each with a best bowling of 6-17, while off-spinner Calderon captured his scalps at 13.07 with a best of 5-37.
Leic Charles, the captain of newly-minted champions Dominica, took the MVP award for his side with 193 runs at 64.33 and a best score of 54.
Johnnel Eugene was named as the MVP for third-placed St. Lucia, after scoring 183 runs at 61.00 with a best of 60 not out. He also picked up eight wickets with his off-spin at 19.75 apiece.
Delorn Douglas was named the MVP for hapless hosts SVG. He was their top run-getter with 143 runs at 28.60 with two half centuries and a highest score of 62, but could not inspire the rest of his teammates, as they failed to win a match in the tournament.
