A supremely talented keeper-batsman, Nicholas Pooran promises to make a big splash on the big stage in the years to come. he was picked for the Under 19 World Cup in the UAE. He showcased an icy cool temperament well beyond his age, pulling West Indies out of the mire from 70-8 and then eventually lifting them to an improbable 208 in the quarter-final. He hit the headlines in the inaugural version of the CPL, walloping a 24-ball-54 for Trinidad and Tobago Steel against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Such was the brutality of the innings that even Sunil Narine did not escape the pasting.
