Powell looks at himself as ‘a batsman with power’


Windsor Park, Dominica
West Indian batsman Rovman Powell says he believes he has evolved as a batsman.
Powell’s blistering unbeaten 28-ball 61 against Bangladesh in the second T20I in Dominica helped the hosts take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series after the opener was washed out due to rain at the same venue a day prior.
“The platform was already set by captain and Brandon and I think they played well before I got to the crease so it was just an opportunity for me to advance the score and bat all overs and I think I did that today,” said Powell after the game on Sunday.
“I think it’s a pretty good wicket. It’s a very good wicket, especially for batting and you just see five or so balls and get yourself in and then the ball just coming on to the bat and you express yourself as a batsman,” he added.
Powell also added that he now feels he has grown as a cricketer, and as a result, there is a change in his mindset as far as his batting is concerned.
“In anything you do, especially in professional sport, growth is a very important part and you have to grow from skill perspective to mental perspective and in each part I think I am growing and hopefully continue to learn.”
