Trinidad and Tobago will be going all out to regain the Regional Under-19 limited-overs crown, which they lost last year to Barbados.
T&T face the Leeward Islands in their opening match of the 50-over competition from 9.30 a.m. today at Friendship in Barbados and will be looking to start their campaign positively.
The Vikash Mohan-led T&T U-19s have the momentum heading into the game after they won first innings points over the Leewards in a high-scoring draw in the three-day tournament which ended on Thursday.
Trinidad and Tobago opener Jeremy Solozano scored 123 in that match while his Hillview College teammate Brian Christmas hit 153 as the T&T batsmen found their footing.
Skipper Mohan also had a good knock, smashing ten fours and a six in a 92-ball 96 to get himself in gear for the limited-overs contest.
But the T&T bowlers will have to step up their game to give the team a chance of lifting the trophy.
Right-arm pacer Philton Williams took five wickets in the previous match against the Leewards and will have another big role to play today, along with his new- ball partner, left-arm pacer Tevin Robertson.
T&T still have a lot of variety in their spin-bowling department, with left-arm spinner and vice-captain Jovan Ali leading the way.
Leg-spinner Addrien Daniel also picked up some wickets in the three-day competition and could prove to be a handful in the limited-overs format.
Also in action today are defending limited-overs champions Barbados, who take on the ICC Americas team at Queen's Park.
In the other match, Jamaica tackle Guyana at Bayfield.
The Windward Island are on a bye.
All matches bowl off at 9.30 a.m.
