The competitive nature of the tournament and the friendly people have prompted the Australian 360 Cricket Academy to return to the Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools’ Cricket Tournament for the second time.

“The island itself is fantastic, the Barbadian people are brilliant and being our off season, it’s an opportunity for our boys to come and compete in a competition,” said coach of the 360 Cricket Academy, Dan Smith.

He is among one of the many coaches who believe the tournament can offer immense experience to his players.

Speaking to THE NATION on Monday night at the tournament’s opening ceremony at the Sea Rocks Dome, Smith highlighted the experience his team would gain by playing in different conditions and playing against different oppositions.

During the opening ceremony, more than 100 youngsters got the chance to rub shoulders with some of the past greats, including Sir Garry, Sir Charles Griffith, Cammie Smith and Carlisle Best. (NU/KB)
