Continuing his extraordinary debut first-class season, Mikyle Louis has become a beacon of talent for the Leeward Hurricanes, with a century against the Windward Islands Volcanoes, his third in this year’s regional competition.

Louis’ latest innings of 100 runs from 193 balls on Day 1 helped the Hurricanes reach 300, before being bowled out. This performance places him at a staggering 682 runs in 14 innings this season, with an average just below 50.

Currently standing as the leading run-scorer in the competition, Louis’ consistent excellence has not only anchored his team’s batting lineup, but has also put him in serious contention for the upcoming West Indies tour of England. His remarkable season began with two centuries against Guyana, setting the tone for a record-breaking string of performances that also includes four half-centuries.

Adding to the family accolades, Mikyle’s older brother, Jeremiah, is also making significant waves in regional cricket. He has reached the 30-wicket mark this season, leading as the top pacer. His impressive form enhances the duo’s contribution to the Hurricanes and underscores the remarkable talent emerging from the Louis family.

The Hurricanes’ performance and particularly the achievements of the Louis brothers have sparked excitement throughout the Kittitian cricket community. Observers and pundits are keenly watching Mikyle, whose prowess at the crease has made him one of the most talked-about prospects in recent memory.

As the final round of matches progresses, all eyes will be on whether these standout performances by the Louis brothers will translate into international call-ups. With the West Indies looking to bolster their squad for the challenging conditions in England, the timing could not be better for these young talents to make their mark. If they were to be selected they would be the first from St Kitts to be called up to the regional side.
