Alick Athanaze is a young Dominican cricketer who made his List A debut for the West Indies Under-19s in the 2016–17. However, he recently made his mark during a successful tour of New Zealand at the ICC Cricket Under 19 World Cup tournament.
Although the West Indies team was knocked out in an early round of the tournament, Alick scored two centuries, was named Man of the Match and eventually finished as top scorer with 418 runs!
Alick was met at the Douglas Charles Airport by sports officials, his parents and the media. And was escorted to Roseau via motorcade, where he met with more fans and supporters.
A small group of friends (calling themselves Wha Go DA!) wanted to do a bit more for Alick and offered him a token – a cheque of $550.00 – as a way of encouraging him and inspiring other youth sportsmen and sportswomen.
Since the donation, many have asked about making their own contributions and Alick has provided his banking information below:
Name: Alick Athanzae
Bank: First Caribbean International Bank (Old Street, Roseau)
Account Number: 107027929
Make your own donation or share the information with those who will!
We look forward to many more great showings from Alick, and hope that this donation stirs up local interest and appreciation for sports among businesses and government departments.
Here’s a highlight reel from a recent match at the ICC Under-19 World Cup, West Indies v Canada. Alick is shown at bat with teammate Keagan Simmons in the first 60 seconds of the video:
