Kieron Powell, having turned his back on cricket for baseball but then turned his back on baseball for cricket, is, you guessed it… back in the West Indies ODI squad for the first time since March 2014. The left-handed opening batsman last appeared for West Indies in whites in June of the same year and has been in prolific form in domestic cricket in recent times, including striking three centuries in four innings in late January / early February. Powell possesses a top score of 83 in 28 ODI outings but has three Test centuries to his name. He averages over 27 but less than 28 in both forms.
