Nicholas Pooran produced what Sachin Tendulkar called "the best save I have seen in my life" with a remarkable one-handed effort in the IPL that has to be seen to be believed.
The West Indian leapt full length over the rope at wide long-on and then remarkably managed to flick the ball back into play before hitting the turf to deny Sanju Samson a six.
"No way, that is unbelievable!" cried an astounded Kevin Pietersen on commentary seeing the save again on replay as Pooran, playing for Kings XI Punjab against Rajasthan Royals, smiled away in the deep.
Is it the best piece of fielding in the history of cricket?!
Pooran has just produced one of the greatest fielding saves I have ever seen. That was almost two yards over the rope and to pull it back....Wow! Where is this standard of fielding going to take us next....— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 27, 2020
