News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Feb. 9, 2018: The West Indies A squad is gearing up to face squad to face England Lions in the three, four-day “test” matches starting this Sunday, Feb. 11th.
Among those making the team is left-handed opener Kieran Powell, batsman Jermaine Blackwood, wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, all-rounder Raymon Reifer, left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican and fast bowler Miguel Cummins.
The 27-year-old Powell, who has played 31 Tests, will skipper the side. Powell, despite his experience, only returned to international cricket last year following a three-year self-imposed break,and has yet to really impress with a mere two half-centuries in 19 test innings.
The February 11th to March 1st series also includes three one-day games.
