We always want to give our customers and fans of the sport the best possible experience, connecting them with great sporting moments. All games will be broadcast in Anguilla and Dominica to ensure that Digicel customers and cricket fans from these islands will not miss the chance to support their favourite team.”
Captain of the Montserrat U50 team, Shernyl Burns said “I am proud, not only to be the captain of the Montserrat team but, to be able to encourage the team to showcase their talent and make a name for themselves in the Caribbean”. Burns promised to bring his team to victory at the end of the tournament and to keep the trophy in Montserrat.
The competition and camaraderie among the seven teams in the tournament is not to be missed and this year will be bigger and better, so fans across the Leeward Islands can get ready for even more excitement during this years’ U50 Leeward Islands Cricket tournament.
