CUL DE SAC—The second week of the Motorworld T20 Challenge is set to continue on Sunday morning. On show will be one new team and some players playing in new teams.Lookout for Future Champs B, the new team in the tournament. The team, which is made up mainly of U17 players, will allow the youngsters to match skills in the big league. These players could not play for Future Champs A, so Cricket St. Maarten decided to create a team to have the players compete at a higher level. Some of the players who will feature prominently in this team are Jeremiah Addai, Krish Wadhwa, Kyan Maccow, Jaeden Bramble, Chirag Aswani and Roy Singh. Even though they will be considered underdogs against all opponents in this tournament, winning is not everything. Their weaknesses could become their strength; after all, the Spartans started off as a young Future Champs team that lost many matches and shed many tears but is now a championship team.Future Champs B is scheduled to play Lucian Rangers on Sunday morning from 10:00 am. Against the Rangers, the youngsters have a shaky opponent for the first match. The Rangers went winless in the last tournament but will be gunning to improve their performance in this new year. Not for lack of talent but for commitment, the Lucians had a promising campaign in the last tournament. They will be hopeful that more of their skilled players will show up for all the matches in this tournament. Some of the stalwarts of the team St, Stephen Evans, Monlouis Robinson and Cedrick Fenelon, will hope the young brigade demonstrates more commitment this time around. And then, on Sunday from 1:45 pm, Sun Insurance Jaguars take on Windward Express Conquerors. The Jaguars have strengthened their team by injecting Akeem Saunders, Moreland Le Blanc, John Luc Lamboudiere, and Jaleel Mohamed. The new players will add a massive spark to the Jaguars team, which did not win a match in the last tournament. Captain Dwayne Elgin will feel more confident leading the team with the inclusion of these new players. Conquerors, on the other hand, are set to feature the regular faces in this tournament. Captain Lerry Baptiste has shouldered the team for many years. Conquerors Club is one of the oldest clubs on the island and has a strong support base, which now lives like a family. The tournament opened with a clinical 32-run win for NAGICO against Motorworld Spartans. The matches scheduled for this weekend are expected to engage the spectators who are looking for entertaining cricket.
