Nicholas Pooran drops fun story behind his Indian nickname

Nicholas Pooran drops fun story behind his Indian nickname

Star West Indian batsman Nicholas Pooran posted a video of himself enjoying the well-known Dal Bati Churma dish in Rajasthan during the 2023 Indian Premier League on Instagram. He was joined at the restaurant by celebrities like Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi, and their amusing banter during the meal went viral on social media.

Pooran revealed a year later that people all around the world have begun referring to him by the dish’s name. The 28-year-old said that when his followers called and he ignored them, they began referring to him as “Dal Bhati,” at which point he started laughing. Following the game between the Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings at Ekana Stadium, the stumper-batter discussed the situation.

Nicholas Pooran gets candid:

He laughed and said, “Everywhere I go, people will say, ‘Nikki P, Nikki P.’ I’ll ignore them, and then they’ll say, ‘Dal Bhati,’ and then I’ll just start laughing.”

Meanwhile, Pooran was named captain while KL Rahul was playing as an Impact Sub against Punjab. LSG won for the first time this season under his direction, defeating Punjab by a margin of 21 runs.

Quinton de Kock, a South Africa international, provided the team with a fantastic start when he batted first, scoring 54 runs off of 38 deliveries. Pooran and Krunal Pandya took over after he was removed, scoring 42 and 43* runs, respectively. Thanks to their outstanding batting, LSG scored 199 runs in the opening half.

Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow gave PBKS a good start in the chase, but neither of them could capitalize, and the visitors lost control of the game as wickets fell like a house of cards in the middle overs. Their opening partnership of 102 runs was their best moment of the second innings, but the team would be disappointed with their poor middle-order batting performance.
