Watch: Kieron Pollard entertains fans with hilarious reactions against Rajasthan Royals
West Indies limited-overs captain Kieron Pollard has been one of the crucial cogs of the Mumbai Indians franchise for more than a decade. His loyalty to the defending champions has never been in doubt.
The all-rounder has been a perfect T20 package to Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma. Pollard has been part of the dynamic Mumbai team that won the IPL in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and in 2020 respectively.
Besides relishing success in the Indian Premier League, he has been with the team through thick and thin. MI team management, captain and the owners of the franchise have plenty of faith in Pollard's all-round ability.
Not only can he smash the ball hard, but also a terrific fielder in the deep and even makes the difficult catches look so easy because of his large hands. Although his bowling performance saw a steady decline in the T20 format, his long connection with the team makes him a pivotal member of the side.
Kieron Pollard entertains fans with special moves
When Pollard is at the crease, the entertainment quotient is doubled because of the way he approaches the game. He is unpredictable because at any moment, he can surprise the fans with his antics on the field. Whatever he does on the field, it becomes a sensation and a headline.
During the game between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Ahmedabad, Pollard once again stole the spotlight after he came up with hilarious reactions on the field. When the defending champions where cruising on the run-chase, Pollard faced the IPL's most expensive player, Chris Morris.
The South African pacer delivered a short-pitched delivery and knowing that it was a short ball, Pollard immediately ducked in order to leave the ball in the first place. But what happened next was pure drama. The ball hit Pollard's helmet and travelled towards the fine leg for a boundary. Meanwhile, Pollard showed his hilarious side to the fans where he constantly waved the ball to reach the boundary rope.
