The match was being played between West Indies and South Africa at Supersport Park. South African team was chasing the target. Meanwhile, the South African batsman hit the shot and the ball went to the boundary. Powell ran back to stop the ball. Where the ball was going, two ball boys were standing on the boundary. One of them was quite small and his age would be around 4-5. When the ball was going near the boundary, the ball boy came to the boundary to pick up the ball. In such a situation, there was a fear that Powell might fall on that child, but this player saved that child and coming out of the side, he himself went to the boundary. Hit the rear boards badly. Not only this, he also went beyond it. He dangled between the boards and the pipe behind him. However, Powell somehow managed to save the little boy and another ball boy sitting behind him, risking his life too.
