Gambhir’s response came after spending Rs 16 crore on Nicholas Pooran, thus justifying his decision.

In the mini auction held last week for IPL 2023, Nicholas Pooran fetched Rs 16 crore. He was bought by Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at a huge price. Looking at Nicholas Pooran’s recent performance in T20, no one expected him to be sold for such an amount. Many cricket experts call this LSG bet wrong. Faced with such a situation, the team’s mentor, Gautam Gambhir, has given some arguments that justify his decision.

Speaking on the Jio Cinepa app, Gautam Gambhir said: ‘I don’t watch the latest season. I look at the skill and the impact of the player. This tournament is not about scoring 500-600 runs. That player can win you 2-3 games in a season. If you have such a player, you can build a good team around him.

Gautam Gambhir said: ‘I have not made this decision thinking only of this season. He can better support us in the long run. Very few players in this age category (27-28) have this ability. The more Puran plays, the better he gets. I’ve always believed that records only make headlines, but Impact wins you games.

Nicholas Pooran was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad last month after a poor performance in IPL 2022. In the latest IPL mega auction, Pooran sold for Rs 10.75 crore. Despite the poor performance in IPL 2022, this time the price of him increased by more than one and a half times. The amazing thing is that in the last 20 T20 innings from August to now, Nicholas Pooran’s batting average has been just 10.80. He has been able to score runs with a strike rate of just 114.28. In such a situation, this price received by him surprises even cricket experts.
