Whilst in Trinidad, the squad will take part in an intensive training regime. They will play four practice matches against Wanderers CC, Queen's Park CC, Preysal Sports Club and Powergen Sports Club. They will be meeting with and have guidance from Mr. Deryck Murray, President of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board of Control and former West Indian national player. They will have regular practice sessions in the nets and on the field and will have the opportunity to train with former West Indian national players, Tony Gray and Bernard Julian. In the classroom, the team will focus on personal development, mental aspects of the game and will watch video analysis of themselves to see where they need to improve. Mr. Clinton Jeremiah, former army instructor, will be working on the team's overall physical fitness.
Reginald Pearman, President of the BCB stated:
"We are extremely pleased with the progress of the U19 World Cup preparation program. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Montpelier Re, the official U19 World Cup sponsors, and the Government, the team has a wonderful opportunity to train overseas, both in Trinidad and in India on route to Malaysia. This training is vital to prepare the team for the games they will face in Malaysia. We understand that the level of the competition in Malaysia will be very high and we will leave no stone unturned to give our squad the best preparation possible. The team has been training particularly hard and we are confident they will do our country proud on and off the field in the upcoming months."
