T20 World Cup to be hosted only in the West Indies

In a conversation with broadcasters, Powell said, “For the last 12 months, I have been requesting Sunil to return to the West Indies T20 team. He has kept everyone guessing. I have explained to him, along with his best friends Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, and Nicholas Pooran, to reconsider his retirement. I hope we can convince him before the T20 World Cup.”

All Rajasthan players are in good Form

Powell said, “When we talk about the Rajasthan Royals team, the players are in good condition and will continue to be so for a long time. I bat at number 4 or 5 for the West Indies and if you think West Indies has a good T20 team, you can consider me for selection. I keep discussing this with the team management as well.”Powell is playing the role of finisher for Rajasthan Royals.
