Powell to captain Leewards in Super50

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC-West Indies opener Kieran Powell has been appointed skipper 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 squad 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.

The son of legend Sir Vivian Richards, Mali Richards, has also been called up.

Mali, 30, is a stylish middle-order batsman who 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.
