The explosive West Indies wicket-keeper batsman, Nicholas Pooran, who was playing his trade in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) got married to Alyssa Miguel on Tuesday. Pooran posted a picture of the ceremony on his official social media handle on Instagram.
Captioning the picture, Nicholas Pooran wrote: “Jesus has blessed me with many things in this life. None greater than having you in my life @kathrina_miguel. Welcoming Mr. and Mrs. Pooran.” Wishes poured in from all quarters of the cricket fraternity which included Pooran’s IPL franchise PBKS and its players.

Players including West Indies’ Fabian Allen, New Zealand’s Jimmy Neasham, Australia’s, David Warner, England’s Chris Jordan, and PBKS teammate Mandeep Singh were some of the cricket who send their wishes with their comments on the photograph.
Nicholas Pooran witnessed a forgettable time in the IPL 2021. He scored only 28 runs in the seven matches that PBKS played with a highest of 19 runs.
A recent BCCI release confirmed that the remaining 31 games of the IPL 2021 will be taking place in the UAE in September. A total of only 29 matches were completed before IPL 2021 was postponed due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the bio-bubble.
However, Pooran remains a key member of the West Indies team. In 28 ODIs, the southpaw has amassed as many as 982 runs at an average of over 49. In the T20I format, Pooran has two half-centuries under his belt in international cricket in 27 matches.
