Coach of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes and former West Indies fast bowler, Winston Benjamin, has lamented a lack of preparation time going into the Regional Super50 competition slated to bowl off next month.
According to the Antiguan, his team will immediately move from the 4-Day format to the limited overs version within days.
“Unfortunately for us, we don’t have the preparation time and reason being, the Super50 starts four days after we would have played our last 4-Day match against Windward Islands. I believe it might be here in Antigua so we are not going to have a lot of time to prepare and that’s the issue,” he said.
The sub-regional squad has endured a horrid run in the Regional 4-Day competition to date, winning just one of their seven matches. 
The team will however welcome back West Indies batsman Kieran Powell for the Super50, which Benjamin hopes will boost their chances.
“As far as I know, Powell is the captain but we had other stand-in captains while he was away on West Indies duties. We had Devon Thomas captain the team for the first two games and Rahkeem Cornwall, who is originally the vice captain to Powell, took over, so I am just assuming that when Powell gets here, he will pick up that mantle,” the coach said.
Earlier this year, Leeward Islands Hurricanes reached the semifinals of the 2017 Super50 but were eliminated by Barbados.
