Punjab chased down the target of 165 with six balls to spare. Pooran played a knock of 53 during the chase.
He said, “Before these three games, we talked and it was that we had to win. Chris (Gayle) said that there is only one way from here and it’s upwards. We knew that we have to deliver in the powerplay and at the backend,” he said.
