Ambris, who was the first and only Vincentian to represent the West Indies at the Under-15 level, curtailed his participation in the current Windward Islands Under-19 competition, and shared in a third wicket partnership of 108 with his Captain and Test player Kraigg Braithwaite. The Barbadian opener scored 121 not out, as West Indies piled up 278 for 8 from their 50 overs.

In reply, the USA Under-19’s were skittled out for 62. Fast bowler Kyle Mayers finished with 5 for 17 from 6 overs and spinner Donovan Nelson took 2 for 4 from three overs, as the West Indies romped to a comfortable 116 run triumph.

All four matches for the West Indies tour will be against the USA Under-19’s.
