During the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match 9, Nicholas Puran of Kings XI Punjab made a superb defense at the mid-wicket boundary against Rajasthan Royals. Sanju Samson launched the ball into Sharjah’s sky and the ball almost went off the ropes. Puran’s heavy effort, leaping into the air, caught the ball in mid-air and sent him back to the playground while he was on the air before landing on the wrong side of the boundary. The effort saved one that seemed to be six and the batsman could only score two runs.
Did you see – that incredible poor thing left.

Kevin Pietersen commented at the time, “What I’ve seen is the best.”
“Puran has produced one of the biggest fielding I’ve ever seen. It was about two yards on the rope and to pull it back… wow! Where is this fielding standard to take us forward, ”said Peterson’s fellow commentator Harsha Bhogle, by tweeting.
“How did you do that, Puran ???” Are you wearing a cape under your #KXIP T-shirt ?? Aakash Chopra quipped on Twitter.
James Taylor received praise and admiration from where England praised: “This is the best piece of fielding you will ever see from Pooran !!!! Wow!!!”
Puran’s athleticism saved four runs for the team in a high-pressure chase, even with RR taking out all the guns blazing to chase 224 as determined by KXIP.
Earlier, Mayank Agarwal is hitting an IPL century to help KXIP post 223/2 in his 20 overs.
