Fudadin, Powell to strengthen Windies A

GROS ISLET, St Lucia,  CMC – West Indies A have been strengthened ahead of the third and decisive four-day “Test” against India A with the inclusion of the Test duo of Kieran Powell and Assad Fudadin.

Kieran Powell

Both players returned this week from the tour of England with the senior side and have been immediately drafted into the 13-man squad for the contest at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium starting tomorrow.

Powell played all three Tests, gathering just 71 runs from five innings but was good enough to get a fluent century against England Lions.

Fudadin, meanwhile, debuted in the rain-hit last Test at Edgbaston, scoring 28 in his only innings.

The two left-handers will join an upbeat A squad which leveled the three-match series in St Vincent earlier this week with a comprehensive 125-win on the final day.
India A won the opening match by two wickets at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

Trinidadian opener Justin Guillen has been dropped after being called up for the Arnos Vale fixture.

SQUAD – Veerasammy Permaul (captain), Jason Holder (vice-captain), Devendra Bishoo, Nkrumah Bonner, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Kyle Corbin, Assad Fudadin, Delorn Johnson, Kevin McClean, Kieran Powell, Donovan Pagon, Devon Thomas.
