Barbados, with new West Indies Test player Kraigg Brathwaite at the helm, will begin their campaign for regional youth cricket supremacy when they face the Windward Islands today at the Demerera Cricket Club in the annual regional Under-19 tournament in Guyana.
Apart from Brathwaite, the Barbados team has four WI Under-19 players – Kyle Mayers, Anthony Alleyne, Justin Greaves, and Jerome Jones – who are expected to be deep in the mix as Barbados go after the three-day title, which they last won in 2008.
Pitches are expected to be low and slow, so Barbados may choose to use Combermere off-spinner Chaim Holder in tandem with schoolmate Chad Williams, another left-hander, who was just voted Most Valuable Player of the regional Under-15 tournament held in Trinidad and Tobago last week.
