"Nice to win in front of the home crowd": Pooran on win over Punjab

Lucknow: After his side's 21-run win against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Lucknow Super Giants' (LSG) stand-in skipper Nicholas Pooran said that it was 'nice' to clinch a victory in front of the home crowd.

While speaking at the post-match presentation, Pooran showered praise on Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow and said that they played well for the Punjab Kings.
Talking about Mayank Yadav's magnificent bowling figures, he said that it was an 'inspiring performance' from the youngster.

"Wonderful start, nice to win in front of the home crowd. We had conversations, spoke about getting good starts. Spoke about getting the right combinations. It was a good total.

It's a big venue, one side is big, one side short. It's about getting wickets and getting boundaries. It's only going to get challenging. Shikhar and Bairstow played well. They didn't take the game away from us as we got wickets at the right time. Mayank's was the story of the night.That was an inspiring performance, he (Mayank) is a young guy. He showed the entire world how good he is. He is not only fast, but also is accurate. It's the beauty of the IPL, gives the local players to perform. Wonderful platform. Every game is an opportunity, expect them to get better with every game. The groundsmen have contributed, as a batsman you can't ask for anything more," Pooran said.
