Nicholas Pooran was clueless while facing Kuldeep Yadav

In IPL 2024, Pooran’s batting prowess has been evident, contributing valuable runs in several matches. He commenced his campaign with a stellar unbeaten innings of 64 runs, albeit in a losing effort against Rajasthan Royals. Subsequently, Pooran notched up scores of 42, 40*, and 32* against Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, and Gujarat Titans respectively, showcasing his consistency and ability to deliver crucial runs, especially in the death overs.

However, in the ongoing game, Delhi Capitals faced the daunting task of dismissing Pooran, given his exceptional form. It was their star spinner Kuldeep Yadav who rose to the occasion, delivering a sublime delivery that accounted for Pooran’s dismissal on a golden duck.

The delivery from Kuldeep Yadav was a deceiving one, pitching straight on the off stump. Pooran, anticipating a turn, misread the delivery entirely, leaving a significant gap between his bat and pad. The ball found its way through this gap, uprooting Pooran’s off stump, much to the delight of the Delhi Capitals.

At the time of writing, Lucknow Super Giants found themselves in a precarious position at 80 for 5 in the 10th over. Khaleel Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav had already made significant breakthroughs, dismissing key batters including Quinton de Kock, Devdutt Padikkal, Marcus Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran.
