Over the last six years, the Vincentians have consistently finished at the bottom of the four team table.

However, this year, the team’s management, which comprises coach – Arnold Gilkes and manager – Samuel Holder, is hoping for better fortunes as well as the local youth committee.

The team sports four players who were part of last year’s team, when the tournament was also held in St Lucia.

Back in the mix are captain – Tijourn Pope, vice- captain – Jehiel Walters, Reynolson Hillocks and Don Wayne Baptiste.

Also included are Romando Mars, Rad Collins, Jondale Greaves, Kemron Straugh, Delanzo Lavia, Rondel Williams, Devron Peters, Handal Roban and Zivon Walker.

Four reserves in Ojay Matthews, Camillo Cain, Shemar Conliffe and Kemar Archibald have also been identified.

The Vincentian hopefuls were set to open against Grenada yesterday, Wednesday at the Mindoo Phillip Park and today meet host St Lucia at the Gros Islet ground.

St Vincent and the Grenadines’ final match in round one of the 40-over competition, is carded for Saturday versus Dominica at the Gros Islet venue.

Round two which commences on Sunday, sees St Vincent and the Grenadines facing St Lucia at Gros Islet, with their other two matches slated for Tuesday versus Dominica at Mindo Phillip Park and a meeting with Grenada on Wednesday against Grenada at Gros Islet.
