Saint Lucia’s Ackeem Auguste is lauded for his century in the West Indies Under-19 High Performance Camp

Published

on

Graeme West, High Performance Manager of the West Indies Rising Stars U19s, feels that Saint Lucia’s Ackeem Auguste was able to properly express himself in last weekend’s trial match in Antigua and Barbuda.

Auguste made 104 to lead his team to 270 all out. They then bowled out the team led by Giovonte Depeiza for 227 to win by 43 runs at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, on Sunday.

Auguste made his century off just 81 balls, which included six fours and six sixes. 

West, who has been working with the West Indies youth teams for several years now, says that this is what the technical staff had been expecting of the young Saint Lucian.

West works closely with West Indies Under-19 head coach Floyd Reifer, as prepare for the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean in early 2022.

With the team scheduled to tour England in September, and the boys only able to gather as a group less than 6 months away from the tournament, West notes that prepration has been far from ideal.

But he opines that thanks to remote work with coaches in the various territories, a good foundation has been laid. 

The West Indies Rising Stars U19s High Performance Camp is a key part of CWI’s investment in developing and preparing the players for the ICC U19 World Cup to be played in the West Indies from January 4 to February 3, 2022. 

The West Indies Rising Stars U19 tour of England will feature six Youth One-Day Internationals at The County Ground, Beckenham and The Polo Farm, Canterbury from Saturday, September 4 to Friday, September 17.
