“I talked to my bats after first three failures in IPL,” Rovman Powell reveals he gave his old bat a little break as it wasn’t giving him runs

Rovman Powell has turned out to be one of Delhi Capitals' most consistent performers in the last few games

The Delhi Capitals power hitter Rovman Powell has jokingly revealed that he had a conversation with one of his old bats after he failed to score too many runs in the first three games of the IPL.

Rovman Powell was speaking on the podcast The Grade Cricketer where he said that he started the IPL with one of his favorite old bats which he had scored so many runs with, but after the runs didn’t come in the first three games, he went to his room, put his favorite bat on the bed and asked, “You are going to disappoint me in the IPL, what are you doing? I will give you one more chance, not more than that.”

Powell then said that in the next game against RCB, all he got to face was one ball, just one ball and then when he returned to his hotel room again, he put his bat on the bed and said, “Now I am going to give you a little break.”

Rovman Powell narrated the story in an extremely funny way

The way Powell was narrating the story, it was so funny that all the other people on the podcast, including the presenters and two other DC players, Prithvi Shaw and David Warner, couldn’t stop laughing. Powell then further went on and said that he asked four or five of his other bats, “Now which one of you is going to give me some runs?”

It might be a hilarious story and it is indeed hilarious, but after changing his bat, the fortunes of Rovman Powell have actually changed in the IPL and not only is he scoring runs consistently now, he is scoring them with some domination.

The fifty that Powell scored in the last game against SRH and the clip at which he scored it proved to be a game defining knock for DC.

DC, however, would want Powell’s new bat to keep helping him for a little bit longer and for him to pile on a few more runs for the team in the remaining part of the ongoing IPL.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
