Rovman Powell, a West Indian batsman, says he has matured as a batsman rather than a “hitter.” Powell’s unbeaten 28-ball 61 against Bangladesh in the second T20I in Dominica gave the hosts a 1-0 lead in the three-match series after the opening was rained out the day before at the same venue owing to rain. Powell’s devastating power-hitting took the game away from the visitors after opener Brandon King (57) and captain Nicholas Pooran (34) created the groundwork by combining for 74 runs for the second wicket.

“The foundation had already been built by the captain and Brandon, and I believe they played well before I came to the crease, so it was simply a chance for me to progress the score and bat all-overs, and I think I achieved that today,” Powell said after the game on Sunday (July 3). “I believe it is a nice wicket. It’s a great track, particularly for batting, because you only have to see five or six balls to get yourself in, and then the ball simply comes onto the bat and you can express yourself as a batter. ”

Powell also said that he now believes he has matured as a cricketer, and that this has resulted in a shift in his batting approach. “Growth is a vital element of everything, particularly in professional sports, and you have to improve from a talent standpoint to a mental standpoint, and I believe I am improving in each area and will continue to learn.

To be honest, I stopped seeing myself as a power hitter. I started thinking of myself as a batsman with power and control, knowing when to search for a single and when to attack. I believe it has served me well so far, “he added, whose knock included six sixes and two fours. He scored 23 runs off a Shakib al Hasan over, which gave the West Indies the momentum they needed, “ he said.
