DC Podcast: Delhi Capitals’ explosive batsman Rovman Powell has narrated many stories related to himself in a podcast show of his franchise. These include some stories related to his poverty, as well as a funny anecdote from the early days after his recent arrival in Mumbai.

Powell told that when he reached Mumbai for the IPL, he had to spend the first few days wrapping a towel. Powell says, ‘When I came to Mumbai, I was told that the airlines did not have any of my bags. The only thing I had with me was my handbag. I didn’t have any extra clothes. In such a situation, I had to spend 2 to 3 days wrapping towels in my hotel room. Meanwhile, if anyone knocked on the door of the room, I used to talk behind the door.

Rovman Powell has scored 205 runs for Delhi Capitals this season at an explosive strike rate of 161. He could not do anything special in the first few matches of IPL but now his bat is spewing runs.

Rovman Powell comes from a very poor family. He lived in a house in a tin shed, where water used to drip from the roof during the rainy season. In such a way his night passed. Many times there was nothing in the house to eat. His mother taught him hard and made him worthy of it.

Recalling his old days, Powell says, ‘I come from a very small village, where agriculture is the main source of income for most families. It was my dream since childhood that I would bring my family out of poverty through cricket and my education. So far cricket has supported me well. Had I not been a cricketer, I would have been a soldier. Before becoming a professional cricketer, I was going to be a soldier.
