Powell was named in the original 15-man squad but failed to recover from a groin strain that could keep him out for four to six weeks. The ICC's technical committee approved McClean as Powell's replacement. Powell was included in the preliminary 30-man squad despite reportedly turning down the chance to be part of the West Indies side after Chris Gayle and Co. decided to strike. According to Radio Jamaica, Powell wrote a letter to the board informing of his injury and visited the WICB medical doctor, who will file a report on his injury.
McClean, who made his first-class debut in 2008, has scored 291 runs and taken 39 wickets, from 13 matches.
