Pooran making up for lost opportunities

By Sports Desk November 29, 2018

 Windies middle order batsman Nicholas Pooran has admitted he is hoping to make up for lost opportunities after a productive recent spell at the crease.

Coming off a strong performance in the T20 series against India, Pooran has continued his powerful hitting going into the T10 League.  In five matches, the Trinidad and Tobago native has plundered 213 runs. 

Pooran, who represents the Northern Warriors, is second on the runs scoring list behind compatriot Andre Fletcher who has scored 225 runs for the Pakhtoons.  On Thursday, Pooran’s 43 enabled the Warriors to rout defending champions Kerala Knights by eight wickets.

"I've been opening the batting so I get more time in the middle. I'm just happy now that I can perform for my team,” Pooran said.

"I feel when things are going your way you need to capitalise and that's what I'm doing. I'm happy that I've been consistent,” he added.

"The game is changing every day. Batsmen are not afraid to try different things. It's just become tougher and tougher for the bowlers. I'm happy I'm not a bowler. But there is Wahab (Riaz) who did excellently well for us last year and this year. Also today (Thursday) our bowlers bowled well against the Kerala Knights, credit to them."
