Caribbean call for the Mount’s Dan Stevens

Eighteen-year-old batsman Dan Stevens has been given the call to fly to St Kitts to join up with the Scotland squad competing in the ICC Under-19 World Cup.

The Greenmount youngster will be with his international teammates for the rest of the tournament which, should they progress, ends on February 5th.

Initially selected as a batting reserve, it should be a great experience for Dan who will be hoping the Scots can reverse their fortunes after an opening game 40-run defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka Under-19s on Friday.

Their group games conclude this week with fixtures against West Indies Under-19s on Monday (January 17) and Australia Under-19 on Wednesday (January 19). Both games will be played at the St Kitts capital Basseterre.

Everybody at Greenmount Cricket Club wishes Dan the very best of luck on his Caribbean adventure.
