Kings XI Punjab's Nicholas Pooran has been in smashing form in the ongoing Indian Premier League and former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been impressed by the West Indian's clean striking abilities.

 

Pooran hit a brilliant 53 from 28 balls as Kings XI outclassed Delhi Capitals by five wickets at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday.

Tendulkar praised Pooran for his clean hitting and said left-handed batsman's stance and backlift reminds him of South African cricketer JP Duminy

"Some power-packed shots played by @nicholas_47. What a clean striker of the ball he has been. His stance and backlift reminds me of @jpduminy21," Tendulkar tweeted.

With the win, Kings XI jumped to the fifth position in the points table with eight points from 10 matches, while Delhi Capitals are still top of the table with 14 points from 10 matches.

Kings XI will next take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on October 24 at the Dubai International Stadium.
