Cricket News: Twitter reactions to Nicholas Pooran’s 137* off 55 balls | Reactions to Nicholas Pooran’s 137* (55) in the MLC 2023 Final

Nicholas Pooran has just pulled off an innings many believe he is capable of producing. Pooran, often one of the most sought-after T20 players on the planet, hit a remarkable 137* off just 55 balls to seal the inaugural Major League Cricket (MLC) title for MI New York (MINY).

Pooran cleared the rope an extraordinary 13 times, along with ten fours. Only Imad Wasim (7.00) and Cameron Gannon (9.00) conceded less than ten an over for Seattle, whose attack had no answers to the MINY captain.

New York, who had finished fourth, rallied to win the title. They defended 141 against Washington Freedom in the Eliminator. A magnificent opening burst by Trent Boult meant they were always ahead of the game against Texas Super Kings in Qualifier 2. However, Pooran saved the best to last, making a mockery of what looked to be an excellent score of 183 by Seattle, headlined by Quinton de Kock’s 87 (52) that seems to be long forgotten amidst Pooran’s heroics.

Fans took to Twitter in awe of Pooran’s effort. “Words are not enough to describe this knock from Nicholas Pooran. You’re a genius man,” one tweet read. “Nicholas Pooran! What a player. One of the greatest T20 final knocks. Made an absolute mockery of the chase against the best side in the tournament,” read another.

Below are some of the reactions to a memorable innings by a supremely talented player.

Pooran and MINY can celebrate an excellent achievement before attention shifts to the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL). The 11th season will begin on 16th August, with Pooran set to line up with Trinbago Knight Riders once again.
