During West Indies’ batting, King’s shot hit Pooran’s left hand and left a mark. Arshdeep’s delivery hit Pooran on the stomach but not without leaving another scary mark. Pooran took to Twitter and wrote: “The after-effects (laughing emoticon) thank you brandon kind and arsdeep.”

After winning the series, Nicholas Pooran took to his Instagram Story and shared a post, taking a cheeky dig at Hardik Pandya over his previous comment. Notably, Pandya had said: “If Nicky wants to hit, let him hit me and that was the plan, I enjoy such competition“. 

In the fifth T20I, Pooran responded to Pandya’s challenge and rose to the occasion. He smashed the Indian all-rounder for not one but two sixes off two consecutive deliveries and in doing so, he won the challenge.
