    After this competition are the young lads place in some kind of academy to get them ready for next years u15 tournament .As far i know the the win-lotto U15 tournament just finished and we came out last.So i do not understand the format or the sequence of things.I thought this tournament would be the platform to select players for the regional tournament.SO if there is no way of keeping them together for next years competition we have a big lull, because as far i understand the academy at possie is not for that !something does not add up ! please someone clarify for me i am concern!
    We have not won the U15 winlotto regional tournament since 2013 under the captaincy of Leic Charles and before that i cannot remember .So we definitely have to put our house in order!the powers that be have to do what they have to do to get it right and stop this power struggle .Our batting was shameful but yet still we have windward batting consultant here in Dominica. How much has he contributed?
