WICB Under 15 Tourney bowls off tomorrow
St John’s, Antigua– The West Indies Cricket Board Regional Under 15 Tournament bowls off tomorrow in Trinidad with three matches at Guaracara Park, Gilbert Park and the National Cricket Centre.
In the first round of two day matches host Trinidad & Tobago will compete against Guyana; Windward Islands face Jamaica; and Leeward Islands will take on Barbados.
After the first two rounds the WICB will conduct a one day Player Development Seminar for all players.
The seminar will include lectures and discussions on Anti-Doping, Injury Prevention and History of West Indies Cricket.
All matches in the round robin competition will be of two days duration.
The competition will also have a new feature to increase the chances of matches ending in a result.
Under the new format, in the first innings both teams will bat for a maximum of two hours during which a minimum of 30 overs must be bowled. If the team bowling first has completed its quota of 30 overs before the scheduled cut off time, play shall continue until such time.
