On the back of his most runs reward for his 349 runs at an average of 69.80, Stewart was named the tournament’s best wicketkeeper, as well as his team’s most valuable player.

Stewart, on the six occasions he batted, registered scores of 87, 81, 66, 54, 38 and 23.

Stewart collected his awards last Wednesday evening, at a closing ceremony held at the Murray Heights Hotel.

At the ceremony, he expressed his desire to go on to make the West Indies senior team.

Sharing the spotlight were the joint wicket takers.

Stewart’s teammate Narun Singh and St Lucian’s Stuart Calderon, both picked up 13 wickets apiece.

Singh, a left-arm spinner got his wickets at 10.15 each and Calderon, an offspinner, did so at 13.07.

Completing the list of awardees were the most valuable players for the other three territories.

Taking the award for new champions Dominica was captain Leic Charles, who scored 193 runs.

Likewise, captain of St Lucia Johnnel Eugene was that island’s recipient, as he compiled 183 runs, with Dellorn Douglas taking the award for the Vincentians.

Douglas was the lead batsman for St Vincent and the Grenadines with 143 runs.
