A squad of 15 players has been announced to represent the Americas Region in the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional 50 over first-class competition.
The squad includes Bermuda’s Kamau Leverock, while all-rounder Delray Rawlins was unfortunately unavailable for selection due to his duties with English County, Sussex and England Under 19’s.
This fantastic opportunity, granted by the WICB, will be the second year that an ICC Americas team has been included in the senior event.
The Americas team will be hosted in Barbados for its preliminary round matches and takes on CCC Marooners in its first fixture of the event on January 26th. The other teams in the Americas group are Barbados Pride, Guyana Jaguars and Jamaica Scorpions.
The squad includes a number of returning players from the group that represented the region earlier this year and also includes some debutants following strong performances at a number of recent events including the K. A. Auty Cup, World Cricket League Division 4 and the Canada v Bermuda series in Bermuda.
The group will be led by Nitish Kumar (Captain) and Steven Taylor (Vice Captain) whom are both exciting young leaders for their respective countries.
Leverock on his selection said, “I think it's good for Bermuda cricket. If I can get a good run and show the ICC that they need to even their focus it would be great.”
“It's always a pleasure to play in the place I have family. It's pretty much a second home and I enjoy playing on fast bouncy tracks,” concluded Leverock on playing in the West Indies.

ICC Americas team to Compete in West Indies
English County Cricket Club Kent will play in the upcoming West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Super50, as will an ICC Americas team and a West Indies U19 team.
It is unknown if any Bermuda players have been invited, but with the West Indies Cricket Board suspending and ending contracts for their players for various infractions, one could only expect that they will not let players from a ICC Suspended Country take part in their tournament.
Kent is the first team from a different ICC Full Member country to participate in this competition. The tournament is being played from January 24th, 2017 until February 18th, 2017 in Antigua and Barbados.
WICB 2017 Regional Super50 – Group Structure Group A:
Kent Spitfires, Leeward Island Hurricanes, Trinidad & Tobago Force, West Indies Under 19 and Windward Island Volcanoes.
Barbados Pride, Guyana Jaguars, CCC (Combined Campuses and Colleges) Marooners, Jamaica Scorpions and ICC Americas.
