Third duck of the season for Punjab King’s Nicholas Pooran. West Indian Nicholas Pooran who is known for his explosive batting has been on a streak of low scores in the fourteenth edition of IPL 2021. He has so far scored just 9 runs in 4 matches including three ducks.
“It’s the third duck in four innings so far for Pooran this IPL! — He has been unlucky a couple of times. Sakariya pulled off a stunner in the first game and here he was undone by a bad call”. said, Agraj Mishra.
England’s David Malan can be a prefered replacement in place of Pooran. Although he has not made his IPL debut yet Malan is ranked the best ICC T20 batter so far.
Malan has so far just played 24 international T20 matches and scored 1003 runs with an impressive strike rate of 144.32 with one Hundred and 10 fifties, including 108 fours and 35 sixes. His explosive skills can be a huge benefit for the Punjab Kings.
Hence, David Malan can just be the right replacement in place of Nicholas Pooran and give the Punjab Kings a fair chance to reorder their batting lineup as well. Currently, Punjab stands in the bottom three in the IPL 2021 points table.
