Nicholas Pooran Charms Fans by Singing Hit Songs
Nicholas Pooran is not just known for his big hitting on the cricket field, but also for his singing skills. The West Indies star was seen singing Arijit Singh’s hit songs alongside his captain, Krunal Pandya in a video shared by the Lucknow Super Giants social media team.
The two cricketers were playing a question-answer game when they were asked who can sing better. Pooran confidently replied, "I can sing, but a song has to be played."
The West Indies star then sang Arijit Singh's hit song "Tum Hi Ho" from the movie "Aashiqui 2" and impressed everyone with his singing skills. He went on to sing another Arijit Singh hit, "Ve Maahi" from the movie "Kesari" and was joined by Krunal, leaving the fans utterly impressed.
Pooran has been in great form in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, scoring 248 runs in 11 games so far. His best performance came against Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he scored 62 off just 19 balls. Pooran has been a key player for the Lucknow Super Giants and has impressed everyone with his aggressive batting.
He has also been in excellent form behind the stumps, taking some stunning catches and effecting important dismissals.
However, despite Pooran’s heroics, LSG is currently outside the top four in the IPL points table. With Kolkata Knight Riders set to host Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, the winner of the match will enter the top four, pushing LSG out of the playoff spots.
LSG is currently led by Krunal Pandya, who has taken over the captaincy from regular skipper KL Rahul. Rahul was ruled out of the IPL 2023 due to a thigh injury he suffered during their home game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
With Pooran’s big-hitting and singing skills, LSG fans have a lot to cheer about.
Statements on the Upcoming Match
Speaking about their upcoming match against SRH, LSG will be hoping to continue their winning run and secure their place in the top four of the IPL 2023 points table. However, they will face a tough challenge against an SRH side that has shown glimpses of their potential this season.
The Hyderabad-based franchise is currently in sixth place on the IPL 2023 points table, having won four of their 11 matches. They will be looking to bounce back from their recent defeat against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and secure a much-needed win against LSG.
SRH will be banking on their star players, including David Warner, Kane Williamson, and Rashid Khan, to deliver the goods on Saturday. The team will also be hoping that their other players, such as Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, step up and contribute with bat and ball.
As the IPL 2023 enters its final phase, fans can expect more excitement and drama in the remaining games. With the playoff spots still up for grabs, every game is crucial for the teams, and the players will be looking to give their best to help their team reach the knockout stages.
