The Indian Premier League is known to throw up surprises every now and then, and the bid for Nicholas Pooran, who was eventually signed up by Punjab Kings for a salary of INR 4.2 crore, was just one of those things. The West Indian has a reputation of being an explosive batsman and has racked up impressive numbers in T20 leagues across the world. With the “Universe Boss” in the same team as him, Pooran played seven games in his debut IPL season scoring 168 runs. He became an integral part of the PBKS squad in 2020, smashing 353 runs with a high score of 77. Bowlers will have to beware of the explosive lefthander as once he settles, he is unstoppable.
