The 13th season of the Indian Premier League has begun. The first match was played last night in Dubai. The competition was tough between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. However, MS Dhoni’s army initiated their journey by winning the first match. IPL is raising the temperature. In addition to this, the West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran will head in a record-breaking mood.
Nicholas Pooran, prior knowledge
Nicholas Pooran is a Trinidadian cricketer. He plays for the West Indies cricket team in international cricket. Moreover, the 24-year-old player is a part of the Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020. Likewise last year he was associated with the same team. The young player is quite famous for his shots and it will be interesting to witness his amazing game.
IPL fever begins
Cricket is followed as an enormous religion in India. People are physically, mentally, and emotionally so engrossed with these sports. Due to the global pandemic, the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) got delayed. In fact, the entire season has been scheduled in Dubai. Last night the first match was played between two victorious teams. The craze for this league and the favorite teams belongs to a different level.
The player comes with some massive targets
Again some live action is going to be witnessed tonight. The Delhi Capitals are all set to give a tough competition to the Kings XI Punjab. West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran will head in a record-breaking mood. The player who is playing from Punjab’s team has a target to topple either the fastest 100 or fastest 50 competition record.
However such marks will not be easy to eclipse. India batsman K.L. Rahul currently holds the record for the fastest 50. He achieved this score in a meager 14 balls in 2018. The fastest century was smacked by none other than legendary West Indian batsman Chris Gayle. The gigantic player reached the mark in just 30 deliveries. This is definitely going to be a super tough target.
The player revealed his plans when asked about which record he will like to break this season. He quickly replied, “Any. Fastest fifty or the fastest hundred”. The player has been observed in a good form in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). We wish the player all the very best for the entire season. Also, it will be quite interesting to witness which team lifts the cup this year.
