Regional U15 Tourney starts July 22
 

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Holders Trinidad & 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 kilometres 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 two-island republic’s side narrowly edged out the Windwards for the top spot, with Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and the Leewards following.
