Tour Management

U18 National Coach David Moore

U18 Director Terry Fray


National Coach, David Moore stated, "With the change in the qualifications procedures for the ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup meaning that one team from the ICC Americas will definitely participate in the tournament, this is a wonderful opportunity to get meaningful competition and review the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition as we progress to the 2013 qualifying tournament."


"This ICC Americas initiative has been lead by Andy Pick, ICC Americas Development Program Officer. This tournament is a wonderful step in the process of preparation for the Under 19 World Cup qualifying tournament next year. The players that have been chosen are performing well in both matches and in practice and are developing well as a unit."


"Unfortunately, Kamau Leverock is unavailable due to school commitments in the UK. On a positive we have been able to select Onias Bascome in the squad. Onias has been performing very well in the UK in the Warwickshire Under 18 squad. He has been released by Warwickshire and will fly and join the team. So too will Joshua Gilbert who is undertaking his National Junior Scholarship Award with Acle CC and Christian Burgess who is playing and training in Lincolnshire."


"The timing of the team announcement was due to the consideration of player injuries, availability and commitment to matches and practices."
