“Rovman Powell was hitting bullets,” says Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant is pleased with Rovman Powell’s performance, since he will be playing for the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League next season.

Fans were on the edge of their seats in the second T20 against India as Rovman Powell’s power-hitting batsman evoked flashbacks of Carlos Braithwaite’s performance at the same venue, but Powell was unable to complete the run-chase as West Indies lost by 8 runs.

Rovman Powell was tasked with bringing the innings to close clash. Powell’s 68-run not out smash will be remembered at Eden Gardens, but it was not enough for the visitors to win the game.

Rishabh Pant is overjoyed as he watches Rovman Powell’s magnificent shot all across the park. Pant will be captaining the IPL team Delhi Capitals, and Powell is one of the key players.

Rovman Powell was acquired by Delhi Capitals for ₹2.80 crore. Delhi Capitals’ management will be delighted to watch the great performance by Powell.

“Rovman Powell was hitting bullets. At the back of my mind I was happy as well as Powell will be playing for Delhi Capitals (Smiles).” – Rishabh Pant
