Kieron Pollard IPL
In the 2010 IPL Auction, he was purchased by the Mumbai Indians, and he is now a key member of the team. He had a strong first season but then had two mediocre seasons following that. He got off to a good start in 2013, scoring 420 runs to help his team win their first championship.
Pollard did not have the best IPL season in 2019. He did, however, return to his previous club, the Mumbai Indians, and play a few key innings for them. In a low-scoring match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai was set to bat first and lost their top three players within the first 10 overs.
Given Mumbai’s bowling, Pollard started his carnage in the 17th over, hitting four sixes and two fours in that time to reach 46* off 26 balls and give Mumbai a 136-run total they could defend. On his debut, West Indian Alzarri Joseph took six wickets for 12 runs as Mumbai bowled Hyderabad out for 96 runs. Pollard has become the first player in team history to play 150 games for the Mumbai Indians for the 11th year in a row.
