Rovman Powell has come into the spotlight as the veteran West Indies batter displayed a spirit of the game and showed a humanitarian effort while playing against the South African side.
Rovman Powell was seen chasing the ball, as the ball reaches the boundary line and two little kids are visible standing behind the boundary line. Powell instead of crashing into the little kids avoids them and nearly gets injured saving colliding with them.
