Digicel congratulates ICC U-19 World Cup championsPeople usually remember the extraordinary ones – the hard workers and inventors, the movers and shakers. But most of all, they remember the history-makers.Digicel congratulates the members of the West Indies Under-19 cricket team, who have now joined the ranks of the history-makers with their outstanding performance at the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup.For the past few weeks, the entire region has been focused on the team’s progress throughout the tournament, and its momentous performance has indeed been a source of inspiration and motivation for everyone.In our support for youth and sport development, we constantly repeat the mantra, ‘from grassroots to greatness’, to encourage our young athletes to aim for the highest in all their pursuits. We are sure that this achievement by the team will also serve as encouragement for Caribbean youth who aspire to cricket beyond national borders.On that note, we also extend the heartiest of commendations to our local players Michael Frew, Shahid Crooks and Odean Smith for their outstanding performance, while representing Jamaica. We are especially delighted to see the growth and development of Michael Frew, who was a member of the winning team in the Digicel/ISSA T20 Tournament last year.The success of the team has no doubt set the stage for the exciting 2016 Caribbean Premier League season, which is fast-approaching. This accomplishment has helped to create renewed passion and pride in the sport for Caribbean people and promises a bright future ahead for West Indies cricket.
