At the third One-Day International against Pakistan in Multan, Nicholas Pooran, who ordinarily wears the wicketkeeping gloves, rolled his arms and took four wickets in his 10-over quota.
Nicholas Pooran is a dangerous batsman, but on Sunday, the West Indies white-ball captain surprised everyone with his bowling abilities.
In the third One-Day International against Pakistan in Multan, the 26-year-old, who ordinarily wears the wicketkeeping gloves, rolled his arms and picked four wickets in his 10-over quota.
Pooran, who bowled spin, got his maiden wicket in his third over when he removed opener Fakhar Zaman, giving his team the early advantage. He went on to dismiss Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Rizwan, and Mohammad Haris after that.
Former cricket greats Dale Steyn and Ian Bishop reacted to his performance. “All the bowling to our tailenders at Sunrisers training!” tweeted Steyn, who is the fast-bowling coach for IPL club Sunrisers Hyderabad, the side for which Pooran plays.
Meanwhile, a dust storm in Multan halted play in the third One-Day International. After 33 overs had been bowled in Pakistan’s innings, which had chosen to bat first after winning the toss, the game was called off owing to severe weather conditions.
Currently, the hosts are batting on 155 for the loss of five wickets. Shadab Khan and Khusdil Shah will restart the action, and the match has been trimmed to 48 overs per side, according to the latest information.
