ICC Americas to play in WICB U 19
 

St John’s, Antigua — The West Indies Cricket Board Regional Under 19 Tournament is scheduled to begin in Barbados next Monday, July 28 with three matches.

The three-day competition will be played from July 28 to August 16, comprising five rounds of matches.

The 50 overs-a-side competition will be played from August 19 to 29, comprising seven rounds of matches.

An ICC Americas Under 20 side will join the Under-19 sides from the six WICB territories – Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Leeward Islands, Trinidad & Tobago and Windward Islands – for the one-day tournament only.

“We are delighted to welcome a team from the ICC Americas, as the WICB continues efforts to assist with the development of the game in the ICC Americas region,” said WICB Project Officer Rawl Lewis.

“This tournament continues to be a vital link to the development of elite players for the region and it is part of the WICB development programme which seeks to ensure that players have a meaningful competition at every stage of development,” Lewis added.

Jamaica start their defence of the three-day title against traditional rivals Trinidad & Tobago in the opening round, which also features hosts Barbados against Windward Islands at Queen’s Park, and Guyana against Leeward Islands at Bayfield.

Hosts Barbados will start their defence of the one-day competition against ICC Americas at Queen’s Park, when Jamaica tackle Guyana at Bayfield, and Trinidad & Tobago meet Leewards at Friendship.
