David Warner effected a crucial runout dismissing the dangerous Nicholas Pooran for a duck during their game against Punjab Kings in Chennai. Now the Aussie superstar has added more salt to the injury taking a sarcastic dig at Pooran on social media.
Meanwhile, Punjab’s batting once again faltered after skipper KL Rahul got out in the third over holing out to Kedar Jadhav at mid-wicket. Since then, it was a one-way slide for the team from Hyderabad. The Orange Army restricted Punjab Kings for a mere 120 runs thanks to a valiant knock from Shahrukh Khan. Khaleel Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers returning with three wickets. Sunrisers Hyderabad banked on an opening stand from David Warner and Jonny Bairstow to chase down the total with eight deliveries to spare.
During the game, Warner effected an excellent runout to send Nicholas Pooran packing for a diamond duck. Chris Gayle had punched one to the right off the cover and immediately set off for a quick single. It was Gayle’s call and he wasn’t a smart one at that. Nicholas Pooran had to respond, he did so, but David Warner was quick on the ball. He threw it in one motion and made a direct hit at the striker’s end, with Pooran well short of the crease.
And now, Warner has taken to Instagram to rub some salt on the wounds of Nicholas Pooran. Warner posted an Instagram story where both Pooran and Warner can be seen smiling. He captioned the post with the words, “Don’t run on me boi Nicholas Pooran.”
Here is David Warner’s Instagram story:
Meanwhile, Nicholas Pooran is going through a lean patch of form with the bat in the ongoing IPL 2021. In the 4 innings that he has batted this year, Pooran has recorded 3 ducks and averages an abysmal 2.25 with the willow. The southpaw will be desperate to bounce back off the wall and help Punjab Kings to return to winning ways in the ongoing tournament.
