After a short break the national Under-19 cricket team will aim to continue its momentum when round three of the West Indies Cricket Board Regional U-19 50-over tournament bowls off today in Guyana.

T&T tackles Guyana which sealed the three-day tournament last Friday with a crushing win by an innings and 41 runs over T&T. Before receiving a second round bye on Tuesday, T&T breezed past the ICC Americas team on Monday by 164 runs in the opening round. Opening batsman Amir Jangoo has been the best batsman for T&T in Guyana. 

In round one the Merry Boys player fell just short of a century scoring 95 to lead T&T to 254 all out batting first. Jangoo will be hoping to get some more help this time around as no other batsman got to 50. Jemeel Maniram, Jangoo’s national U-17 teammate last year was the second highest scorer with 43. Akil Seetal grabbed 4/21 for T&T to help dismiss ICC for 91.

Guyana’s batting has not been convincing so far in the one day tournament. In round one Guyana posted a modest 202 all out in 49.2 overs against the Leeward Islands. Guyana’s bowling attack proved to be the difference as the Leewards was dismissed for 126. In round two Guyana made 229 then limited ICC to 180 all out.

In other matches, defending champions Jamaica will face ICC Americas at Everest, while the Leeward Islands and Windward Islands clash at Enmore. Barbados will be on a third round bye.
