Under-19s to play Sagicor HPC
WICB Media Release.
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – The West Indies Under-19 Team will face the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre in two 50-over matches before departing for their tour of Bangladesh.
The matches will be played on Thursday and Friday at the 3Ws Oval at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies. First ball is 9 am (8 am Jamaica Time).
The West Indies Under-19s will then depart on Saturday evening for their tour of Bangladesh which will feature seven 50-over matches against the Bangladesh Under-19s.
Both teams are using the series as preparation for the ICC Under-19 World Cup to be played in United Arad Emirates in February, 2014.
“We are happy to be able to play these matches before we head off to what we expect will be a tough series in Bangladesh, but one which we believe we can win,” said Head Coach Roddy Estwick.
“We want our players to get a ‘feel’ and before we head off. All 15 players will get an opportunity so no one will be left out. We will look to continue the work we started when we played against Bangladesh in Guyana last month.”
Estwick added: “We have to get better at rotating the strike, creating singles, hitting the gaps and looking to bat out the 50 overs. These are the main areas of concern and we want to make sure we get better in this department.”
The West Indies Under-19s leave Bangladesh on December 21.
