Leicestershire cancel Baker deal

Cricinfo staff

Lionel Baker's deal with Leicestershire has fallen through after he was selected for West Indies' squad to play Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

Baker, the 24-year-old quick bowler, was signed on the basis of his British passport but his subsequent international selection means he is no longer eligible as a local player.

Baker went to school in Hackney, but has played for West Indies Under-19s and the Leeward Islands. He was also part of the Stanford Superstars squad but didn't play in any of the matches.
