Rovman Powell: Mother and sister had promised to remove poverty, now became the new Sixer King of IPL


New Delhi: Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell…. These are the Caribbean big hitters that have been entertaining you in the IPL so far. But now also remember the name of Rovman Powell of Delhi Capitals because this player brought a whirlwind of runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday night. Scored half century in just 20 balls. This was also the first half-century of this middle order batsman in IPL. Powell scored an unbeaten 67 off 35 balls in the match.

poverty seen in childhood

Powell had a very disappointing start to the season. He could not even open an account in two matches, but he came to limelight after finishing matches against Rajasthan and Kolkata Knight Riders. Today even though he is living a luxurious life due to IPL, but his childhood has gone through extreme poverty and struggles.

Later this cricketer promised mother and sister that he would soon lift the family out of poverty. In an interview, Powell’s mother said that her son is very naughty. But so smart.
