THE West Indies Cricket Board’s Regional four-day tournament returns to the Daren Sammy Cricket Grounds this weekend as Windward Islands Volcanoes come up against the Guyana Jaguars in a day/night encounter.
The match, which runs from Saturday through Tuesday, starts at 3:00 p.m. and ends at 10:00 p.m. each day.
Guyana is expected to feature players such as former West Indies test player Shivnarine Chanderpaul, current West Indies player VeerasammyPermaul and captain of the champion West Indies Under-19 team ShimronHetmeyer.
Volcanoes will feature players such as former West Indies batsman Devon Smith, leg spinner Shane Shillingford, youth players such as hard-hitting Sunil Ambris and Gidron Pope. Also, expected to be part of the squad is Saint Lucian youth player Tarryck Gabriel in his first season as a member of the squad; the opening batsman has been playing extremely well in England as well as being an outstanding performer in the recently-concluded Windward Islands tournament.
The entrance fee is free on all days; however, the cricket association is asking that patrons make a small donation towards the continued development of cricket on the island.
