Perkins first came to prominence playing for the West Indies in the 2006 Under-19 Cricket World Cup, where he scored 133 from 150 balls in a victory against the United States, an innings that won him the man of the match award.[1] His performances in the tournament earned him a Twenty20 debut for Trinidad and Tobago in the Stanford 20/20 tournament. In his first match, he scored 53 from 28 balls in an eight-wicket win.[2] He subsequently made his first-class debut in January 2007.[3]

Continued domestic success in Twenty20 cricket – in his first nine games, he averaged more than 40 at a strike rate of over 125[4] – earned him a place in the West Indies team for a Twenty20 International against Australia. Opening the innings in a match shortened to eleven overs per side, he scored 9 in a seven-wicket victory.[5]

Having helped Trinidad and Tobago to victory in the Stanford 20/20, scoring an unbeaten half-century in the final,[6] Perkins was included in the initial squad for the team to face England in the Stanford Super Series for a collective prize of $20 million and attended a training camp, but did not make the final squad.[7][8]
