The Combined Colleges and Campuses (CCC) team is appealing to the West Indies Cricket Board, (WICB) not to remove the team from the Regional Super50 and Four-day competitions.

CCCís appeal comes ahead of Saturdayís WICBís meeting at which the teamís future in regional tournaments is expected to be among topics for discussion.

Last week, the WICB CEO Michael Muirhead said the regional board is considering axing CCC from the regional tournaments.

The students held a press conference in Barbados yesterday in an effort to persuade the WICB to change its minds about removing the team from the 2014 regional tournaments.

CCC says it is yet to receive official correspondence on the matter from the WICB.

Captain Kyle Corbin of Barbados says there are hundreds of young cricketers in schools and colleges across the region waiting for an opportunity to enter universities and to play for CCC team.

CCC reached the final of this yearís Super50 tournament, where they lost to the Windward Islands by nine wickets.
