Cameron praises WI U-19 World Cup team

West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President, Dave Cameron is expressing heartiest congratulations on behalf of the Board and Management, to the players and management of the under 19 team which won the World Cup for the first time.

Cameron credits the over 15 months of preparation the team underwent which he thinks “gave them the tools necessary to win the title.”

The five-wicket win Cameron says “was intense, but the players showed resilience and patience required to take them through to the very end. The region is proud this morning of the achievements of this team and we see a clear path to the development of our future stars.”

Cameron thinks “this was a comprehensive team effort and this is indicative of how we would like to move forward with all categories of our game.”

The President in expressing his joy said “it was a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift to all the people in the Caribbean.” He also wanted to highlight the contribution of the families of the young men. He noted also that the team will be appropriately recognised once they return home.
