MI Kieron Pollard, the captain of the Emirates, continued from where he left off on Sunday night at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, as he came up with another blistering half century, his second in a row of the tournament. Despite this, the Emirates ended up on the losing side after Alex Hales and Sherfane Rutherford combined to power the Desert Vipers to a seven-wicket victory on Tuesday.
Not only by his batting, but also by plucking a one-handed blinder on the ropes to grab the prized scalp of his opponent Colin Munro, who looked threatening with his 22-ball 41, Pollard was able to improve the mood of the side.
Munro smashed a full toss ball delivered by Samit Patel in the direction of long-on, where Pollard was positioned, on the second ball of the eighth over of the Desert Vipers’ innings. The skipper of MI Emirates displayed impeccable timing in his jump in order to snag the one-handed stunner.
Kieron Pollard was not only an essential participant for the West Indies cricket team, but he was also a pivotal member of the Mumbai Indians team that competed in the Indian Premier League.
In April of the previous year, he announced his retirement from cricket at the top level, but his exit from the IPL was announced almost seven months later in November of 2022.
Pollard, one of the finest overseas stars to ever play in the Indian Premier League, made the difficult decision to retire on the same day that IPL clubs were required to submit their list of players to be “released and retained.”
After an unremarkable 2022 season, Pollard’s franchise, the Mumbai Indians, was likely going to throw him back into the player pool for the following year. However, Pollard went one step further and decided against participating in the league at all.
Pollard joined the Mumbai Indians in 2010 after being recruited by the team and played for the Mumbai-based club for a total of 13 successful seasons.
The Caribbean all-rounder may no longer participate in the Indian Premier League or in international cricket, but he is still active on the domestic circuit.
