In a feat of superb power-hitting, Nicholas Pooran smashed three consecutive sixes to help Lucknow Super Giants defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League match on Saturday.
Backed by another two sixes from Marcus Stoinis, LSG were able to successfully chase a difficult target of 183 on a slowing pitch at Lucknow with four balls to spare.
