Kieran Powell to lead Leewards in Super50
Published on January 28, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- West Indies opener Kieran Powell has been named as captain of the Leeward Islands for the upcoming NAGICO Super50 Tournament.

The 23-year-old left-hander, who led West Indies A on the One-Day tour of India last year, will have livewire wicket-keeper Devon Thomas as his vice captain.

The Leeward Islands Cricket Association announced the squad on Monday, which also includes several experienced players – leg-spinner Anthony Martin, allrounder Justin Athanaze, and fast bowlers Gavin Tonge and Lionel Baker – who were members of the victorious 2010 team.

There is also a call-up for Mali Richards, the son of legend Sir Vivian Richards. Mali, 30, is a stylish middle-order batsman. He was impressive during the recent Leewards training camp in St Kitts.

The Leewards have been drawn in Zone B alongside home team Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, and Combined Campuses & Colleges. Their opening match is on Saturday against CCC.

The NAGICO Super50 tournament will run from January 30 to February 15 and will be broadcast live on ESPN for television viewers and on Caribbean Super Station radio. Matches at Queen’s Park Oval will be day/night fixtures while matches at Shaw Park, Tobago will be day games.

The champions will take home the Clive Lloyd Trophy – named in honour of the legendary captain of the 1975 and 1979 World Cup winning teams.
