Powell pens deal with Pinneys Resort


LONDON, England - West Indies opening batsman, Kieran Powell, has sealed a deal with the exclusive Pinneys Plantation Resort in Nevis.

Powell, one of the most successful cricketers to emerge from Nevis, will partner with a leading UK-based group of companies set to develop Pinneys.

The deal comes on the heels of a successful ad campaign featuring Powell and a leading national Bank, set to air later this month.

The 22-year-old cricketer sustained an injury last month which left him out of contention for the 2013 West Indies Champions Trophy squad in England next month.

Powell is now concentrating on becoming fully fit in time for the West Indies’ forthcoming Tri-Nation Tournament against India and Sri Lanka in late June.

The gifted left-handed batsman, a former student of the exclusive Millfield School in England, recently re-signed a two year deal with his long-term sponsor, Indian cricketing gear giant, Sareen Sports.

He scored two centuries in a single match during the Test series against Bangladesh last November to become only the first West Indian player since Brian Lara, and the ninth West Indian player in history, to achieve the feat.
