Middle order Batter
A middle-order batter who bowls occasional medium pace, Rovman Powell has been a semi-regular presence in West Indies' white-ball squads from the mid-2010s without quite nailing down a spot.
Powell's maiden ODI hundred, against Ireland in 2018, helped West Indies to a crucial win in the World Cup qualifier, and he captained a weakened side in Bangladesh later that year, but was left out of the squad for the World Cup itself, in 2019.
He has been a consistent performer for Jamaica in white-ball cricket, with runs from the middle order, and captained the Tallawahs franchise in the 2020 CPL. He was Player of the Match in the final of the inaugural Abu Dhabi T10 League in 2018, hitting 61 not out off 25 balls for the victorious Northern Warriors.
In 2022, at the start of a year in which he got an extended run in the West Indies T20I side, he made 107 off 53 balls against England at home and a few games later, 68 and 61 against India and Bangladesh away, both unbeaten. He also played every game in his first IPL season for Delhi Capitals, teeing off sharply from the lower middle-order to produce an impressive run of scores.
