Windwards Under 15 captain to tour Australia next month

HILLSBOROUGH, Carriacou, CMC- Grenada and Windward Islands Under-15 cricket captain Emmanuel Stewart is taking his talents Down Under.

The 14 year-old right handed batsman and wicket-keeper from Carriacou has been invited to be part of an Invitational Under-16 team from Trinidad and Tobago to tour Australia for three weeks.

The Hillsborough Secondary School student will join another Grenadian, Darel Cyrus for the November 14 to December 6 tour organised by All Sport Promotions of Trinidad & Tobago.

“I’m excited but I don’t really show it,” Stewart told GrenadaSports  yesterday. “I’m going to take this seriously because I know there will be selectors who will be looking on and I’m working hard on my game to perform really well and hopefully get another call-up.”

In April of this year, Stewart skippered Grenada to second place in the Windward Islands U-15 Tournament in St Vincent and was one of four Grenadians selected on the Windward Islands team.

He scored 349 runs at an average of 69.5, scored the most runs in the tournament, the Most Valuable Player for Grenada as well as the Tournament’s MVP and the Best Wicketkeeper. His aggregate included four half centuries 87, 81, 66 and 54*.

He then led the Windwards to the runner up position behind Trinidad & Tobago in the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional U-15 tournament in Jamaica.

Stewart scored the most runs – 269 at an average of 38.43 including three half centuries to be recognised as the most outstanding batsman.
