DUBAI: Reacting to KXIP’s Nicholas Pooran’s six-saving effort against RR, ex-India batsman Sachin Tendulkar tweeted, “Best save I have seen in my life. Simply incredible!”.
Apart from Sachin’s appreciation, Pooran had also received a standing ovation from KXIP fielding coach Jonty Rhodes following his effort.
KXIP’s Nicholas Pooran saved a shot by RR’s Sanju Samson from going for a six at deep mid-wicket boundary. Pooran leapt full length over the rope to collect the ball.
Pooran caught the ball with his left hand and flicked it back into play a millisecond before falling. Commentator Kevin Pietersen called it the best save ever in T20 cricket.
