Windies Rovman Powell Ready to Show Potential in Test Series

Published

on

West Indies all-rounder Rovman Powell is eager to showcase his potential over the game’s longer format when he suits up for the team in two First Class matches. The 27-year-old will be among a number of players typically recognized for their achievements in cricket’s shortest format who will be looking to show that they merit consideration for the team’s Test cricket squad. Prominently featured among that group has been T20 standout Nicholas Pooran, but Powell also believes he is capable of having a big impact with both bat and ball. “I’m looking forward to it. I’m looking to show my all-around capabilities.  Whenever I’m given the ball, I will put it in the right areas and get wickets,” Powell told Windies Cricket. “West Indies needs players that can bat a long time.  So, I’m trying my best to go into those games and bat for a session, bat for two sessions,” he added.

Powell, who has never played Test cricket for the West Indies, has accumulated 338 runs in 11 First Class matches, with a high score of 71.  The West Indies will open its tour of New Zealand with three T20 series. The pair of First Class matches are expected to take place at the same time as the Test match.  The first Test is scheduled for Hamilton, between December 3-7, with the second booked for Wellington from December 11-15.
