Carriacou, Petite Martinique and the nation’s fastest rising youth cricketer and West Indies Under 19 captain, Emmanuel Stewart, says that he continues to develop his game towards realizing his dream to be a member of the senior team.
Stewart who recently starred in the West Indies under 19 training camp in Antigua where he scored an unbeaten 105 to lead his team to a six wicket victory, returned home to spend the Easter vacation with his family.
He was also scheduled to lead the Carriacou and Petite Martinique team to the National Under 19 tournament, which began earlier this week. However he is expected to depart on Saturday to continue his studies at the Combermere College in Barbados, where he has been since the commencement of the new school year last September.
The wicketkeeper/batsman says that he has made some adjustments to aspects of his game, which has been proving successful for him.
Stewart who was a member of the victorious under-19 team, which won the ICC World Cup last year, was entrusted with the mantle to skipper the side at the senior regional 50-over tournament earlier this year.
There are wide range regional speculations that he would be called upon to continue in the role as captain for the upcoming tours of South Africa and Zimbabwe later this year and the defense of the ICC world cup title in New Zealand in February 2018.
The young man has been doing an excellent job of balancing his academics with his cricketing involvement.
Stewart whose mother is from Petite Martinique took the opportunity with his family to worship with members of the Roman Catholic Church there on Easter Sunday.
