WATCH : Nicholas Pooran turns cricket at Chinnaswamy to baseball play with bullseye


In pursuit of a challenging target of 182 set by the Lucknow Super Giants, fueled by impressive innings from Quinton de Kock and Nicholas Pooran, RCB initially struggled to keep up with the required run rate.

Despite a promising 40-run partnership at the start, the home team found themselves at 104/6 by the 15th over. Despite a valiant effort from Mahipal Lomror towards the end, wickets continued to fall, with one notable dismissal involving a remarkable direct hit from Nicholas Pooran at the boundary.

In the 18th over, Yash Thakur delivered a full ball just outside the off stump, which Lomror attempted to dispatch over long off but failed to connect properly.

Pooran, positioned deep in the field, made a lightning-quick throw towards the striker’s end, catching Mayank Dagar short of his ground as he scrambled for a double. Despite Dagar’s dive just before the ball struck the stumps, the precision of Pooran’s throw left little doubt that he would have been out regardless.

The exceptional display of fielding prowess by the Trinidadian cricketer prompted comparisons to techniques seen in baseball, sparking discussions across social media platforms.
