Guyana: The National Under 17 team departs Guyana in the quest for the first title at this level. Captain Mohabir is confident of returning home with title. The Guyana Under 17 team departed Guyana for Trinidad and Tobago yesterday (July 17) for the Regional Under 17 tournament set to begin on July 19.
The national team, which sets out to be the first team to win the Regional Under 17, will be led by Alvin Mohabir. Mohabir led Demerara to the GCB Under 17 Inter-County title two weeks ago when they went undefeated in the 50 overs tournament, where he was also the leading wicket-taker.
The squad also includes talented and experienced batsman Mavindra Dindyal, who is expected to lead the batting along with Jonathan Van Lange, who recorded 104 in this year’s Inter-County.
Guyana will face Barbados in their opening match at the National Cricket Center, Couva, on July 19, then play host Trinidad and Tobago in the second round at Powergen on July 21.
Jamaica and the Leeward Islands are the third and fourth round matches at Inshan Ali Park and Gilbert Park on July 23 and 25, respectively. Guyana will then take on the Windward Islands also at Gilbert Park in the final match on July 27 before returning home on July 28, 2022.
Guyana has never won the Regional Under 17 Tournament. The GCB wishes them well and encourages them to believe in themselves and their ability as they seek to make history.
