ICC Media Release
In an Americas Under 15 Championship severely hampered by poor weather, including tropical storm Ernesto, the United States snatched the regional title on the final day, despite more thunderstorms and drastically shortened games.
With the first two days of this three-day event completely lost to Ernesto's presence over Florida in the USA, officials from ICC Americas, USACA and local city and county authorities worked tirelessly to at least salvage a knock-out 20/20 tournament between the four participating teams on the final day. The two semi-finals, although ultimately completed, were interrupted by heavy showers, which meant that the final and third/fourth place play-off were reduced to 15 overs a side in order to fit them in before darkness fell. As it was, the final exciting moments were played out in gathering dark, with a backdrop of thunder and lighting in the distance, as the USA clinched victory off the final ball over Bermuda in the final.
