Chandigarh, September 28
KingsXI Punjab may have lost Sunday’s IPL match to Rajasthan Royals, but the losing team’s player Nicholas Pooran continues to be a social media sensation even a day later.
A jaw-dropping fielding that the West Indian player caught on the boundary line will go down in cricketing history as one of the greatest pieces of fielding of all times.
Nicholas jumped upwards to a considerable height to catch the ball in air and then threw it inside the fence as he fell outside.
Cricket legend Sachin Tandulkar tweeted: “This is the best save I have seen in my life. Simply incredible!!”
