Mavendra Dindyal is the only Guyanese to make it aboard the West Indies Under-15 squad that begins their six-match tour of the United Kingdom on August 12.
For the fourth straight year, a Windies Under-15 squad will go on a two-week tour of the UK in an ongoing exchange between Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England Barmy Army’s Colts.
This year, the team from the West Indies has attracted support from Virgin Atlantic.
The squad was assembled following the championship held in March this year, which led to the Bajans having quite a strong presence in the team with six players, while the Leeward Islands, Windward Islands and Jamaica have two, and Trinidad and Tobago – one.
During the tour, they will face six teams in a series of 50-over matches including the Colts.
The team will play a 20/20 warm-up match against the London Schools Cricket Association on Friday, August 10 before starting the official schedule on Sunday, August 12.
The squad reads: Hilroy Andrew, Ackeem Auguste, Nimar Bolden, Carlon Bowen-Tuckett, Mavendra Dindyal, Jordan Johnson, Johan Layne, Jaden Leacock, Tariq O’Neale, Andrew Rambaran, Yawani Regis, Che Simmons, Sanjay Walker, and Rashad Worrell.
Dr Oba Gulston has been appointed as Manager and Physiotherapist and he will be accompanied by Head Coach Richard Clarke and Assistant Coach Steve Liburd. The squad is scheduled to return to the Region on August 20.
