Frew eager to prove his worth
MIRPUR, Bangladesh, CMC):
West Indies youth cricketer Michael Frew says he plans to use the forthcoming ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh to showcase his talent while helping his team to secure the trophy.
Frew, a middle-order-batsman, is expected to play a key role for his side, when the World Cup begins at the end of this month.
"It is a chance for me to go out there, and show the world what I am capable of, and I am looking forward to it," said Frew.
"I want to do my best for the team, and hope to come home with the trophy."
The outgoing Jamaica Under-19 captain and his team mates will look for inspiration from Guyanese opener, and captain, Shimron Hetmyer, and promising Leewards fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph.
Hetmyer and Joseph, who recently represented their countries in the WICB First-Class Tournament, are the only persons in the squad with first-class experience.
Frew says based on the make-up of the team he is backing young Windies to do well at the World Cup which runs from January 22 to February 14.
West Indies will open their campaign on January 28 against England before going on to play Zimbabwe and Fiji.
