News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Jan. 28, 2022: The West Indies cricket team is going into the third Betway T20 International Series tomorrow as the leader.
The Windies, helped by right-hander Rovman Powell’s magnificent 107, helped the team take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series being played at Kensington Oval.
Head coach Phil Simmons said Powell’s innings in the third match of the Betway T20 International Series ranks among the best he has ever seen in his coaching career.
The right-hander’s 107 earned him a place in history as only the third West Indies player to score a T20I century. He hit 10 sixes in a blistering 107 from just 53 balls.
Powell had said after the match that during his time away from the West Indies team, he had worked hard to overcome his problem facing wrist spin and his performance had proven that had paid off.
Powell, 28, is a Jamaican cricketer who plays for the West Indies cricket team. In December 2018, he captained the West Indies for the first time in a One Day International match against Bangladesh. Domestically, he has played for Jamaica, the Combined Campuses and Colleges, and the Jamaica Tallawahs. He is also a right-arm fast medium bowler.
While West Indies are in reach of taking the Betway T20I series, with the last two games this weekend, Simmons said he was more focused on getting the players performing the best they can.
The final two matches are on Saturday and Sunday. First ball is 4 p.m. (3 p.m. Jamaica/8 p.m. UK).
