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.
