Alvin Mohabir, who captains Guyana’s U17 national team, is confident the team can bring home the first title for Guyana at this level as the team arrives in Trinidad and Tobago.
Guyana’s National U17 team departed Guyana yesterday for Trinidad and Tobago, where they’re expected to compete in a Regional U7 cricket team.
The tournament bowls off on Tuesday, July 19, with Guyana seeking to be the first team to win the auspicious title.
Guyana’s national youth team will be led by Alvin Mohabir, who also led Demerara to the Guyana Cricket Board Under 17 Inter-County title two weeks ago when they went undefeated in the 50-overs tournament. He was also the leading wicket-taker in this tournament.
Mohabir is confident the team can bring home Guyana’s first U17 cricket title.
The squad also includes talented and experienced batsman Mavindra Dindyal, who is expected to lead the batting along with Jonathan Van Lange.
Guyana is set to open their campaign for the title against Barbados in their opening match at the National Cricket Centre, Couva, on July 19.
They then go on to 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.
Finally, the team takes on the Windward Islands at Gilbert Park 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.
