ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC):

Resurgent left-hander Kieran Powell says Leeward Islands Hurricanes' winning streak in the Regional Super50 has been far more gratifying than his rich vein of form, that has seen him gather hundreds in his last two games.

The 26-year-old slammed 105 against West Indies Under-19s last Friday and followed up with a superb 135 against Windward Islands Volcanoes on Sunday, as Hurricanes extended their streak to three wins on the trot.

Powell said the fact Hurricanes were playing as a team and producing results, was the most important element especially as the hosts looked to make inroads into the tournament.

"The most important thing is that we're having a team performance," Powell said following Hurricanes' crushing 184-run victory over Windward Islands Volcanoes on Sunday.

"We've stressed on that, even throughout the four-day matches [that] we're all about the team performances. Obviously in one-day cricket, we try to get one of the top four to bat through the innings.

"Fortunately for me, my luck has struck and I am finally getting some centuries so I'm looking to prolong that form as long as possible and help the team as much as possible."

He added: "The bowlers have done a fantastic job throughout the tournament so far and I think the batting as well has been very consistent so it has left us in good stead to be 3-0."
