St. George’s, Grenada – The WINLOTT INC WICB Under-19 tournament will be played in St. Lucia from April 16 – 21, 2023.
The tournament will see the return of most of the players from last year, but has the inclusion of some promising players, including Windward Islands Under-15 Captain, Theo Edward. The tournament will be used to select the Windwards U19 team to play in the Cricket West Indies (CWI) tournament being hosted in St Vincent & the Grenadines in July.
WICB President Dwain Gill said, “We are happy that WINLOTT INC Super 6 has once again seen it fit to continue supporting youth cricket in the Windwards Islands. There have been huge benefits of WINLOTT’s sponsorship over the years, with several of our players graduating into the Windwards Volcanoes First Class Team. There is no doubt that we have some of the best-emerging talent in the region.” He continued, “With another youth world cup scheduled for early 2024, this year’s tournament is an important one with players competing for places in the Windward U19 team to participate in the CWI Rising Stars U19 Tournament. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with WINLOTT INC.”
St. Lucia currently holds the title after winning the championship in Dominica last year. The leading performers then were Divonie Joseph (Grenada) with the most runs (193). Solomon Bascombe (SVG) and Luke Wilson (SVG) tied for the most wickets in the tournament (12 wickets). The best Wicketkeeper was Noel Leo (St. Lucia), and Tarrique Edward (St. Lucia) was the best fielder.
