T&T, Windwards meet in opener

 Title-holders Tri­ni­dad and Tobago will clash with Windward Is­lands in a highly anti­cipated opening game as they launch their de­fence of the Regional Cricket Under-15 in Ja-m­aica later this month. 

The game will hold special significance since the Trinidadians narrowly beat out the Windwards for last year’s title when the tournament was also staged in Jamaica. 

Guyana finished third,

Barbados were fourth while Jamaica and Lee­ward Islands fin­ished fifth and sixth respectively.

The triumph for T&T

was their seventh in

the history of the com­pe­tition. They will face the Windwards at Kensington Cricket Club in the capital, Kingston. 

Meanwhile, hosts Jamaica will open their campaign against arch-rivals Barbados at Up Park Camp while Guyana and the Leewards will do battle at the Melbourne Club Ground. 

This year’s tourna­ment, which runs from July 22-30, will see teams

contesting 50-over mat­ches under a round-robin format.
