Nicholas Pooran explaining the reason behind focusing on limited over formats so far, said it’s because of the injury he had suffered in 2015.

Notably, the 24-old cricketer sustained an injury after damaging his left leg in a motor crash in 2015. Remembering about the time he said it was almost a career-ending tragedy and the recovery time was quite tough for him.

The injury also forced him to change some decisions and this is why he decided to focus more on limited over cricket for a while.

“Growing up, I always watched Test cricket and I’ve always wanted to play. I had an unfortunate accident; I had to make decisions and had to live with the consequences. But now everything is alright with me and whenever I am called to play Test cricket, I am ready to play,” said the Trinidadian lad.

I always believed myself

The left-handed batsman, speaking further said that even though the recovery time was tough and frustrating, he never lost hope.

“I decided that anything that happened to me, happened for a reason and I just started to believe. Every time I saw improvement in myself, I started to believe that it was possible. I will play cricket again. I didn’t believe I would be down forever. Every time I went to sleep and woke up, I just decided that today was going to be a better day,” added Nicholas.

Nicholas Pooran also gave the credit to his spouse and her family, who stood behind him during the time and helped to get out of the trauma.
