Powell to lead Jamaica Scorpions in super 50
All-rounder Rovman Powell has been chosen to lead the Jamaica Scorpions in the upcoming Regional Super 50 which bowls off on November 6.
Powell takes over from Nikita Miller who retired from cricket following the 2019 West Indies Four Day Championship.
It will be Powell's first full regional tournament as captain following his short stint at the helm with the Jamaica Tallawahs in the just concluded Caribbean Premier League before injury curtailed his tournament.
Meanwhile, left-handed four-day captain Paul Palmer Jnr has been dropped from the squad following a poor run of form in the Super 50 practice matches.
Palmer played just one game for the Scorpions in last year's tournament scoring 15 runs.
STAR Sports has been reliably informed that Palmer has requested a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Jamaica Cricket Association to represent the Combined Campuses and Colleges.
The rest of the Jamaica Scorpions squad for the Super 50 tournament reads wicketkeepers Aldaine Thomas and Dennis Smith, batsmen Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Asad Fudadin and Andre McCarthy, spinners Dennis Bulli, Jamie Merchant and Christopher Lamont, fast bowlers Oshane Thomas, Derval Green, Nicolson Gordon and Marquino Mindley.
Five reserve players have also been named in Jermaine Levy, Javel Glen, Gordon Bryan, Damani Sewell and Alwyn Williams.
The Scorpions, who open their 2019 Super 50 campaign against Barbados on November 7 at Warner Park, will be coached by Andre Coley.
