Solozano, Boodram to lead youth teams
Jeremy Solozano and Bryan Boodram will captain the national Under-19 and national Under-17 teams respectively at the West Indies regional cricket tournaments, starting in July.
Solozano, who was part of the Under-19 team last year, will lead a 14-man team to Guyana to participate in the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Under-19 tournament from July 20 - August 10. Sixteen players were selected on the preliminary squad, but only 14 will make the trip to Guyana.
Camillo Carimbocas, Brian Christmas, Justin Joseph and Jesse Bootan were also part of last year’s team. Amir Jangoo, who was the leading batsman in the regional Under-17 tournament last year, will be the vice-captain. Last year the Under-19 competition was played in two segments, with a 50-over and a three-day leg being contested. The WICB has not confirmed the structure for this year, but it is speculated that only a 50-over leg will be played.
The WICB Tobago House of Assembly 50-over tournament, which T&T won last year, will be played from July 6-16 in Tobago.
Acting as Boodram’s deputy will be Keagan Simmons. The team includes Kirstan Kallicharan, who scored a massive unbeaten 404 earlier this week for his school Vishnu Boys. Tobagonian Dejourn Charles, who was part of last year’s unit, will try to impress in front his home crowd.
