West Indies Swashbuckling Powell Smashes 55-Ball Hundred In Warm-Up Game

Windies Rovman Powell was in a no-holds-barred move when he entered the pitch.

The ace batter smashed a 55-ball 105 as the West Indies secured a 114-run over the UAE in their second warm-up match ahead of the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe.

When it was all over, the Windies posted a mammoth 374-9 off their 50 overs.

Powell smashed eight fours and eight sixes in his knock, while Nicholas Pooran and Keemo Paul also got in on the act, scoring 74 and 54, respectively.

Pooran hit five fours and five sixes on his knock, while Paul hit four fours and four sixes.

Kyle Mayer (33) and Johnson Charles (30) also make meaningful contributions against Muhammad Jawadullah’s 3-50 from eight overs and Karthik Meiyappan’s 2-51 off six overs.

Yannic Cariah and Jason Holder then led the way with the ball as the UAE finished their 50 overs 260-9.

Basil Hameed tried his best with an unbeaten 122 while Vriitya Aravind made 54, but it wasn’t enough as Cariah claimed his second straight four-wicket haul of the warm-ups with 4-55 from his 10 overs.

Holder provided good support with 2-26 from seven overs.

The West Indies will open their account in the World Cup Qualifiers against the USA on Sunday.
