Bermudians in All-Stars U-19 squad

Royal Gazette article.

HAMILTON, BERMUDA - Four Bermudian cricketers have been selected to play for the Americas All-Star squad in the West Indies Cricket Board Under-19 tournament.

Kamau Leverock, Delray Rawlins, Christian Burgess and Tre Manders, who blasted 170 for Bailey’s Bay in their victory over PHC on Sunday, all played in the recent ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier and will now take part in the August 9-22 tournament.

Bermuda Cricket Board president Loyd Fray said in a statement: "I am very pleased that your young players have been recognised by the ICC and given this great opportunity.

“Last year, Kamau Leverock and Joshua Gilbert were selected so we have managed to double the numbers of our representatives.

“The West Indies Under-19 is a very strong competition which provides an outstanding opportunity for our players to develop, learn and mature as high performance cricketers.

“The fact that a small nation such as Bermuda can be held in such high regard is a testament to the BCB National Academy programme. The Academy programme has consistently received worldwide praise and awards for its quality and outputs and these four young men are fine examples of the important work our coaches are performing."
