Rovman Powell is a Jr Andre Russell.”Such sentiments about the exciting young Jamaican were regularly expressed during the 2016 CPL, which Jamaica Tallawahs won. In the Caribbean Super50, Powell couldn’t have timed his eye-catching all-round performances any better – they came in the semi-final and final, just before the IPL 2017 auction. He was chosen for KKR to replace another Spartan – Andre Russell. Powell has been a constant feature for West Indies in ODIs & T20 from then.
