Domestic careerEdit

Powell made his List A debut in January 2015, playing for the Combined Campuses against Guyana in the 2014–15 Regional Super50.[2] He took 3/20 and scored 31 runs on debut, and was named man of the match.[3] Powell made his first-class debut in the 2015–16 Regional Four Day Competition, playing for Jamaica against Guyana.[4] For the 2015–16 Regional Super50, he returned to the Combined Campuses. In his team's final two matches, he scored twin half-centuries, 71 against the Windward Islands and 63 not out against Guyana.[5][6] He played a key role in Jamaica's march to the final of the 2016-17 Regional Super50. In the semi-final against Trinidad and Tobago, he smashed 95 runs from 45 balls (including 9 sixes and 6 fours), before taking 5-36; these were both career-best List A performances, leading to him being named man-of-the-match.[7] He was then selected by the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 6th round of the 2017 CPL player draft.[8]

In October 2018, Cricket West Indies (CWI) awarded him a white-ball contract for the 2018–19 season.[9][10]
