National Under-17 cricket captain Varendra
Jagroop will lead a 14-man squad to Tobago
from June 29 to July 8 in the West Indies Cricket
Board U-17 Regional 50-over tournament.
The team has been practicing five days a week
since May 27, preparing both mentally and phys-
ically. The team will hold two more practice ses-
sions, today and Thursday and a practice match
tomorrow, before leaving for Tobago on Saturday.
The team played two practice matches against
the U-19 national team over the weekend, losing
the first by 65 runs and the second by seven
Manager of the team Stephen Martel, said the
batting has potential, but is a concern right now.
The coaching staff which is led by Dasrath
Maharaj, would like the batsmen to apply them-
selves at the crease. They would like each player
to face 60 balls in the practice match against a
Powergen XI tomorrow.
In the bowling department, Shane Smith, Jer-
lanie Seales, Anderson Phillip and Jyd Goolie will
lead the attack. The coaching staff would like the
young bowlers to concentrate on line and length,
rather than speed. The tournament will be played
in a round robin format, with the top two teams
going through to the grand final on July 8. The
venues for the matches will be confirmed later
