CRICKET: Regional Under-15 starts next week in Jamaica
The dates and venues for the upcoming West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Under-15 Tournament to be staged in Jamaica has been announced.
The tournament is set to bowl off Friday, July 12, with Jamaica playing Barbados at St Elizabeth Technical High, Guyana taking on Leewards at ALPART, and Trinidad & Tobago battling the Windwards at Treasure Beach Sports Complex.
The tournament will feature fifteen matches played over five rounds with each of the six teams playing five games.
The matches, as usual, will be played over two days under tailor-made rules for Under-15 cricket.
In the first innings teams will bat for two and a half hours during which a minimum of 37 overs must be bowled.
No fast or medium paced bowler will be allowed more than six overs in one spell and once the players complete a spell they must rest for a mandatory period of 40 minutes before resuming bowling.
The WICB Regional Under-15 Tournament began in 1996 with Trinidad and Tobago taking the inaugural title at home.
Barbados are reigning champions, having won in 2012 when the tournament was played in St Kitts.
