    Those who saw him at the 2008 International Cricket Council Under-19 World Cup knew he was tipped for greater things. Bold and audacious, the left-hander reeled off three dashing half-centuries in compiling 253 runs for Yong West Indies at an average of 44. His aggregate was the second highest of the tournament and topped players like Virat Kohli who has since gone on to become an international batting star for India. It was not just that Powell scored runs but rather, the manner in which he did so. His 53 against South Africa required just 50 balls and his 60 against Papua New Guinea needed only 35 deliveries. His third half-century, an even 50 against Ireland came from 46 balls. His aggressive stroke-play hinted at something special and indicated that his transition to the senior team was only around the corner. A year later, he made his international debut in a One-Day International against Bangladesh but it proved an unflattering start to life at the top, as he suffered the a first-ball duck. Things have only gotten better since for the 22-year-old from the tiny island of Nevis. He made his Test debut in July, 2011 and has since fashioned two half-centuries -- the first as opener in a crucial win against Bangladesh at Mirpur and the other s stroke-filled knock at Number 5 against India at Mumbai. His versatility came to the fore when he fashioned a brilliant first class century in equally testing English conditions in West Indies’ four-day match against England Lions recently.
