GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Defending champions Guyana will open the Regional Under-15 Super50 Cricket Tournament against Trinidad & Tobago on July 23 at Bourda Oval in the capital here.

The Guyanese captured the title last year in Jamaica by topping the points table, following victories over all opponents except Windward Islands.

In the other first round matches of this year’s tournament, Jamaica meet Windward Islands at the Guyana National Stadium and Leeward Islands face Barbados at Wales.

The Tournament, in its 20th year, will be contested under a round-robin format, featuring five rounds of matches with the team accumulating the most points being declared champions.

The Regional Under-15 Tournament commenced in 1996 with then hosts T&T taking the inaugural title. They hold the record for the most titles with seven, also winning in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2010 and 2013.

Reigning champions Guyana have claimed the top prize three times comprising back-to-back titles in 1998 and 1999, plus last year.

Jamaica have won the title on four occasions (2006, 2008, 2009, 2011) and Barbados have won three times (1997, 2004, 2012).

Windwards emerged champions eight years ago, leaving Leewards yet to win the title.
