WATCH : Powerhouse Pooran sending one to the moon from Chinnaswamy


Fortune smiled upon RCB captain Faf du Plessis at the toss, where he opted to field first against Lucknow Super Giants at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. However, RCB’s bowlers struggled to contain the opposition during the powerplay, conceding 54 runs.

Despite attempts to regain control, the LSG’s overseas stars, led by Nicholas Pooran, tore through their bowling attack, with Pooran’s mammoth 106-meter six standing out as a highlight of the first innings.

Having been given a reprieve on the third ball of the 17th over by Reece Topley, Pooran seized the opportunity with both hands. When Topley returned for his final over in the 19th, the Caribbean powerhouse smashed three consecutive sixes, culminating in one that soared onto the stadium roof.

Topley delivered a slower bouncer on the fourth ball, which Pooran disdainfully dispatched over deep mid-wicket, leaving the white ball to thud against the Chinnaswamy Stadium roof.

The stadium’s big screen confirmed the colossal 106-meter distance of the hit, igniting a frenzy on Twitter and among cricket fans worldwide.
