Rovman Powell: In T20Is, power hitting is a staple of West Indies cricket. Some of the best power hitters in the world who can send balls into orbit include players like Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Kieron Pollard.
It appears that the younger generation is also following in the same footsteps since Rovman Powell’s colossal six was so massive that even the batter at non-striker end found it hard to believe.
Powell hit a magnificent 104-meter six over midwicket on the third ball of the last over, which was delivered by Blessing Muzarabani. More than the bowler’s response, Akeal Hossain’s response caught everyone’s attention since he couldn’t believe how well the striking was done. Watch Video:
After 12.3 overs, the West Indies were sailing at 90/2. They played brilliantly. However, when the Windies batsman lost momentum and lost 4 wickets in only 12 balls, the tide quickly changed in favour of Zimbabwe.
Rovman Powell’s cameo at the latter end enabled Windies to score over 150 runs. The best bowler for Zimbabwe was Sikandar Raza, who took 3 wickets while only allowing 19 runs to get through his bowling in 4 overs.
