Rain ruins Round 1 of Under 17 Tourney

SCARBOROUGH, TOBAGO - Persistent rainfall in Tobago prevented any play in Round 1 of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Under 17 Tournament that was scheduled to begin on Sunday.

Early morning rain on the island delayed the start of play at all three venues and did enough damage to force the abandonment of play when it did stop falling.
