The two most recent Saint Lucia Under-15 cricket captains have been named on a Windward Islands team to play the West Indies Under-17 tournament in Tobago, 6-16 July.

Four Saint Lucian batsmen have been named to the team, which is led by Grenada’s Emmanuel Stewart, a top-order batsman and wicketkeeper.

The Sir Ira Simmons Secondary duo of Johnel Eugene and Dane Edward are named to the squad. Johnnel led Saint Lucia to the Windward Islands Under-15 title in 2014, and was the top batsman in the 2014 West Indies Under-16 competition.

Johnnel plays for Babonneau in inter-district competition, whilst Dane plays for Gros Islet.

Also making the squad is Kimani Melius, under whose captaincy Saint Lucia defended its Windward Islands Under-15 title this year. Melius is an opening batsman who attends Babonneau Secondary and plays for Gros Islet.

Nick Elibox of Castries Comprehensive and Central Castries has been in a rich vein of form in the ongoing Under-19 national trials, where all four of the Saint Lucian selectees have been involved.

The full squad reads: Emmanuel Stewart (Captain), Johann Jeremiah, Narun Singh, Allick Athanaze, Dillon Douglas, Dabniel Dupigny, Nick Elibox, Johnel Eugene, Kimani Melius, Lee Louisy, Shane Roberts, Urnel Thomas, Dane Edward and Tahj Tavanier.
