BCA opts out of Regional U-19


Share post:

It was a case of counting the cost when the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) pulled stumps on hosting this year’s Regional Under-19 Tournament.

Consequently, the Caribbean’s most prestigious youth tournament will now be held in St Vincent and the Grenadines from July 31 to August 30.

In explaining the decision, president Conde Riley revealed that despite the grant of $1.2 million from Cricket West Indies (CWI) to cover expenses, there would’ve still been a deficit of $400 000 in the BCA’s tournament budget.

“We couldn’t put on the tournament for what we were offered by Cricket West Indies and the BCA board took a conscious decision that we couldn’t absorb another loss and that we should let it go somewhere else because we wanted to more focus on spending that money on our youth cricket development and the infrastructural development of our clubs,” Riley said.
