World Under-19 champions West Indies returned to the Caribbean on Tuesday afternoon to a heroes’ welcome, following their triumph last Sunday at the ICC Youth World Cup in Bangladesh.

They were greeted at the Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados by Barbados Cricket Association president and West Indies Cricket Board director, Joel Garner, along with West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) chief executive Michael Muirhead and other officials.

An elated captain Shimron Hetmyer said his side had remained confident despite their sluggish start to the tournament.

“I think the turnaround came after the game against England where we knew we had to win the other games to get through,” the Guyana left-hander said.
