Grenada tops Batting, Bowling and Wicket Keeping in 2017 Winlott U15 tournament

Despite finishing second to St. Lucia for yet another year in the just concluded WinLott Windward Islands Under Fifteen Tournament, the young Grenadian ambassadors walked away with all individual prizes handed out during a short presentation ceremony, held at the Progress Park in St Andrews on Sunday.

Grenada’s success in the tournament was led by Captain Teddy Bishop who topped the batting, scoring the most runs, a total of 272 from six matches at an average of 54.40; a total that includes four half centuries with best being 59 not out. 

Capturing the most wickets in the tournament was twelve-year-old Grenadian Kervyn Gangardeen. He took 21 wickets with an economy rate of 3.75, his best 6 for 33 from 10 overs versus St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  

Also capturing top award for Grenada was wicket keeper/batsman Jervon Andrew who finished with the most dismissals as a wicketkeeper in the tournament, a total of fourteen dismissals comprising six stumping and eight catches.

The 2017 Winlott WICBC U 15 Tournament ended on Sunday with victory for host country Grenada and St. Lucia in the final round of matches played at Progress Park in St Andrews and La Sagesse in St David’s respectively. 

 In La Sagesse St Lucia made light work of a 124-target set by St. Vincent and the Grenadines. However at Progress Park in was a nail biting finish between Grenada and Dominica. 

Grenada batted first and scored 204 for 6 from their allotted fifty overs and Dominica after looking well placed at 2 for 76 in the 19th over was later restricted to 195 for 9 from their allotted fifty overs due to some spectacular bowling from the Grenada team.

Grenada finished second in the tournament winning three of their six matches beating SVG on two occasions, Dominica in the final game and had one tied match with St Lucia, to amass a total of seven points.

St Lucia finished top of the points-table with 11 points losing one point to a tied game against Grenada.

Four Grenadians named in the Windward lineup
