Kieron Pollard - Franchise Cricket Royalty

Kieron Pollard is an agent of chaos. His ability to put off bowlers with his plundering sixes is a sight to see. Not the most technically gifted cricketers, the power of his shots do the trick. Apart from being a destructive lower-order batsman, he is reliable with the ball as well. His slight changes in speed and the ability to consistently bowl leg cutters make him a valuable option. Kieron Pollard’s huge frame makes him an asset in the field as well. One of the best fielder in the game who is comfortable playing anywhere is a prime example of a modern-day all-rounder. A specialist of the shorter formats, he has played in almost all the T20 leagues around the world, giving him a ton of experience.

Kieron Pollard - Key Statistics and Achievements:

Throughout his career, Kieron Pollard has been known for one thing - carnage. He famously opted against a WICB central contract as that would mean making himself unavailable for franchise cricket. Although not many cricket players would take the route that this cricketer took in his career, he is now one of the most prized assets in T20 franchise cricket. As differences with the WICB were ironed out, Pollard was named the captain of both the T20 and ODI sides.

International Career:

Kieron Pollard and the WICB have not always seen eye to eye. Pollard’s performances in the lucrative T20 leagues of the world didn’t always convert to ones for the West Indies team. As a matter of fact, he is yet to earn his first call up to the test team. He was among the few senior players to be omitted from the 2015 World Cup squad. Since making his return to the national side, he has become more consistent but still continues to be in and out of the side.

IPL Career:

Kieron Pollard is one of the few one-club men remaining in the IPL; ever since he was purchased by Mumbai Indians in 2010, he has stayed with them. His knack for scoring big runs in crunch situations has seen him be an integral part of the only 4-time IPL winning team.
