Coach Toppin knocks format
BARBADOS COACH Dexter Toppin believes the format of the Regional Under-19 Championship is unsatisfactory.
Each team was limited to just three matches in the three-day segment of the competition, which was played in St Vincent, and Toppin told WEEKEND SPORT the format did not allow for an accurate determination of which team was the best.
“It’s going to be always difficult to win a tournament when one team must play three teams but there are five teams in the competition. We didn’t play against Guyana or the Leeward Islands; we played Trinidad, Jamaica and the Windward Islands,” he said.
“In a broader perspective, it [the format] can’t really tell you who the strongest team in the competition really was.”
