Kieron Pollard has stated that this will be his final season playing in the Indian Premier League. He is going to transition into the position of batting coach at the organisation immediately.
Kieron Pollard, widely regarded as one of the finest players to have ever come from outside India and competed in the Indian Premier Tournament (IPL), has made the decision to end his career in the Twenty20 league. Since the beginning of the Indian Premier League, Pollard has been an integral part of the success of the Mumbai Indians club.
After playing at Michigan for 13 seasons, he made the decision to hang up his cleats, but he will remain a part of the Michigan family in his new capacity as batting coach.
Kieron Pollard signed with Mumbai Indians in 2010 and has since been one of the best players of this age. He has won 5 IPL titles and 2 champions league titles while playing for Mumbai Indians. Pollard is known for wearing the team’s colours of blue and gold.
Pollard is now a member of the Mumbai Indians and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. He will also continue to play for the Mumbai Indians’ affiliate team, the Mumbai Indians Emirates, in addition to his role as batting instructor.
Mrs. Nita M. Ambani made the following statement: “For me, Pollard has personified what Mumbai Indians stand for — Khelenge Dil Khol Ke! Since the third season, we have shared the tremendous emotions that build lifelong friendships both on and off the field: joy, sweat, and tears.
He has been an essential contributor to the accomplishments of MI and has been on the victorious squads that have taken home both of our Champions League trophies as well as all five IPL titles. We will miss witnessing his magic on the field for MI, but I’m thrilled that he will continue to play for MI Emirates and will also serve as the hitting coach for MI. We will miss watching him perform for MI, but I’m thrilled that he will continue to play for MI Emirates.
I pray that his new adventure with MI and MI Emirates brings him even more glory, victory, and satisfaction in life. I hope that everything works out well for him!”
“Polly leaves behind a significant legacy as a player with Mumbai Indians,” Mr. Akash Ambani remarked. Every time he stepped foot on the field, the crowd went wild. Throughout his whole IPL career with us, he played the beautiful game of cricket with the utmost commitment and passion no matter how long he was with us. He was a treasured member of the MI family and a wonderful friend.
We are excited to have Polly continue her involvement with the MI Family both as a player and as a batting coach for Mumbai Indians. Polly will also be playing for MI Emirates.
We have every reason to expect that Polly will be just as energetic and influential in his role as a coach as he was while he was playing for us on the pitch. Even while his presence on the field will be missed by the Mumbai Indians, Wankhede Stadium, and the Paltan, his insights will prove to be extremely beneficial to the squad.
Mr. Kieron Pollard stated that “It hasn’t been the easiest decision to make as I will keep playing for a few more years, but I understand that this incredible franchise which has achieved so much needs to transition and if I’m no longer to play for MI then I cannot see myself playing against MI either.” Mr. Kieron Pollard will continue to play for a few more years.
When a member of the MI, forever a MI. Over the course of the previous 13 seasons, I have had the privilege of playing for the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) squad that is both the most successful and the most successful overall. I want to convey my profound gratitude to Mukesh, Nita, and Akash Ambani for the immense love, support, and respect they have always shown me, as well as for the confidence they placed in me. I say this with the utmost sincerity.
I still vividly remember our very first meeting, when they greeted me with open arms and told me, “We are family.” During the time that I spent with the Mumbai Indians, those phrases were more than simply lip service; I saw them reflected in all they did.
