Gros Islet, St Lucia — The West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Selection Panel has called up Kieran Powell and Assad Fudadin to the West Indies A Team 13-man squad for the third Digicel “Test” against India A at Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia.

The pair returned home earlier this week from the West Indies Test Series in England. West Indies A and India A are level 1-1 in the three-match Digicel Series. India A won the opening match by two wickets at Kensington Oval in Barbados. West Indies A bounced back to win the second match by 125 runs at Arnos Vale in St Vincent. The third Digicel Test starts on Saturday at Beausejour.

Powell, 22, is a tall left-handed opener; while Fudadin, 26, is a left-handed middle-order batsman who bowls right-arm medium-pace. Powell played all three Test matches in England. Fudadin made his Test debut in the third and final match at Edgbaston.
