Kings XI Punjab are playing against Rajasthan Royals at the moment at the Dubai International Stadium in match 32 of IPL 2021. Nicholas Pooran is part of Punjab playing XI who are chasing 186 to win. These two teams have previously played some close games and this game might turn out to be another close one.
Meanwhile, during the game, Nicholas Pooran had a moment on the field where the cameras caught doing something unusual. Trying to stop a single, he hobbled almost like a tortoise towards the ball and in the process, his trousers loosened up.

Arshdeep Singh Picked Up A Fifer
With the ball, Arshdeep Singh picked up after while Mohammed Shami picked up three wickets. England spinner Adil Rashid bowled a spell of 3/35.
“We’ll bowl first. It’s a no-brainer, a fresh wicket with grass on. We don’t know how it will play and I prefer chasing. I was just telling a few people in the dressing room that it just felt like yesterday that we were playing IPL 2020. We have a lot that we’ve learnt from last year. We are all professionals and we have tried hard in the heat to prefer ourselves. Pooran, Markram, Rashid and Allen are our overseas players. Unfortunately Chris Gayle misses out and Aiden has been in good form coming into our setup from Sri Lanka” Rahul said at the toss.
“We are good are chasing and setting totals, so we were happy to do both. We have really great talent and characters in our team. It is a very positive atmosphere. Sangakkara brings in the experience, he knows what to communicate at what point. He just wanted us to relax. Lewis, Livingstone, Morris and Mustafizur are our foreigners” said Samson.
