Nicholas Pooran Fell Down: These days qualifier matches are being played for the World Cup 2023.

Last Thursday (June 22), a match was played between West Indies and Nepal, in which West Indies registered a resounding victory by 101 runs. One such incident was seen in this match, when Caribbean batsman Nicholas Pooran fell on the ground.
Actually, Puran fell on the ground while playing the yorker ball during batting. Nepali bowler Karan KC bowled such a brilliant yorker to Nicholas Pooran, which he stopped from entering the stumps, but he himself could not stand on the pitch and fell down. This video was shared through the official social media of ICC.
This incident happened during the 34th over of the first innings. Karan KC, who was bowling, made Puran eat all four in front of his bowling. This was the very first ball of the over, which Pooran completely failed to understand. At that time Puran could not understand at all what happened to him.
