Nicholas Pooran delivered a sensational batting performance, racking up 75 runs off a mere 29 balls. His innings was a masterclass in aggressive cricket, featuring 5 fours and a staggering 8 sixes. Pooran’s ability to dominate the bowlers was evident as he maintained an extraordinary strike rate of 258.62, showcasing his talent for rapid scoring. Each boundary and six he hit not only thrilled the spectators but also significantly boosted his team’s total. Pooran’s exceptional display of power hitting was crucial, highlighting his importance to the team’s batting lineup. His blend of precision and raw power made this innings particularly noteworthy, leaving a lasting impression on the match and underlining his prowess in the T20 format.

Nicholas Pooran’s Statement After Match:

After his valuable innings for Lucknow Super Giants, his team got their perfect runs to defend and eventually, they got the ultimate victory of this season of IPL. With that winning note, they finished all 14 matches of the league stage. After his match-winning innings, he has been named for the Player of the Match award.

Nicholas Pooran said,” For me personally I felt I had to do my job which was to find a way and finish the game. Coming into the season I knew what my game would be. I have been inconsistent as well, I’d be fair to myself, so wanted to get some experience and make it count. Finishing the innings has been challenging sometimes especially in Lucknow.”

He further said, “ I have been practising for a number of years and it’s about putting together all the experience and make it count. I have batted at 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 but if I had to choose I like the powerplay. I can’t be selfish and choose, the beauty of my batting is I can bat at any position and that’s my strength. I’m just blessed I have a second chance to play this game again. Back then 8 years ago when I had an accident I thought I will enjoy the game, take every chance I get and grateful that teams supported me and backed me and it’s my job to repay them.” 

He concluded, “[thoughts moving now to the World Cup] It’s definitely gonna move there. It’s at home and we are looking forward to it. The last couple of years have been difficult for the men from the Caribbean and we are all looking forward to doing something special for the people back home.”
