They were very enthusiastic and enjoyed their time on the field,” Singh said.“The WICB has definitely seen great success from the Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket Programme which has been going on for over 20 years. Players such as Britney Cooper, Shaquana Quintyne, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Shamar Springer, Ryan John and Gidron Pope have come through the programme and were members of the West Indies teams who won the three international titles last year.”Singh added: “We hope the exposure and experiences these young Scotiabank Kiddy cricketers take away from the interval display at the international series inspire them to work hard and achieve great cricketing success, just as those before them.”last_img read more
