The century by Nicholas Pooran was the highlight of the match, however, the individual face-off between Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard gained even more attention. Pooran was facing Pollard and tried to play a switch-hit. Being a cunning player, Pollard stopped in his bowling run-up as Pooran switched sides and pretended to throw the ball at the batsman, which he eventually did hilariously.

The all-rounder then attempted a mankad when Pooran was on the non-striker’s end, however, Pooran was well inside the crease. The show-off between the two West Indian players was hilarious, to say the least.

Pooran was in his scintillating best as he scored an unbeaten 101 in just 37 balls which ensured a comfortable nine-wicket win for his side. His quickfire inning was laced with 10 maximums and 6 fours and the batsman scored at a whopping strike rate of almost 273. The Leatherback Giants are in the 3rd position currently while the Scorchers are reeling at 5th. The Giants have won 3 out of their 5 games while the Scorchers have only registered one win in five contests.
