Following the much publicized attempt by West Indies opening batsman, Kieran Powell, to break into Major League Baseball in the United States, the left-hander is set to make a comeback to regional cricket.

The initial move was hinted when, following his tryouts for MLB teams, baseball scouts did not appear overly interested in the Nevis island native. This was followed by Powell being purchased in the 2016 Caribbean Premier League draft. He had previously missed the 2015 CPL.

Powell is expected to make his transition back to regional cricket this weekend when he will feature as part of the Leewards Hurricanes squad to take on Guyana in the 9th round of the WICB’s Professional Cricket League.

Powell last played First Class cricket in March of 2015 when when he chose the Sri Lankan domestic circuit over the West Indies tournament. An injury forced him to cut short his stint in Sri Lanka following which news reports outlined his attempt to secure a MLB contract.
