Profile

Lionel Baker made history on his debut for West Indies in an ODI against Pakistan in November 2008, becoming the first player from Montserrat in international cricket. A right-arm fast bowler, Baker represents one of the weaker teams in the region - Montserrat is part of the British Leeward Islands - and had few first-class matches behind him before his first international game. Baker was in the Stanford Superstars squad for the Super Series but didn't play a game, and was also included in West Indies' squad for the tour of New Zealand, starting in December. Until his international selection he had a deal to join Leicestershire in 2009, but it fell through after his West Indies call-up because it meant he couldn't join as a local player using his British passport.
