West Indies’ stalwart Kieron Pollard is quite an entertainer both on and off the cricket field. He is one of the most sought-after all-rounders in T20 cricket. The experienced all-rounder has been actively involved in playing franchise cricket leagues all across the globe.
Be it batting, bowling and fielding, Pollard has ticked all the boxes when he steps on the field. His commitment to the game is commendable. He represents Mumbai Indians in the lucrative Indian Premier League.
Pollard captains Trinbago Knight Riders in West Indies’ very own franchise cricket league, i.e. Caribbean Premier League. Kieron Pollard scripted history with the Knight Riders in the CPL 2020 season. He led the team so well that they ended the entire season without losing even a single game.
The best part of their season was that they went on to win the CPL 2020 title. Currently, Pollard is leading TKR in the ongoing season. The Knight Riders played four games wherein they won two games and missed out on pulling off the trick in the other two games.
Kieron Pollard walks far away from the on-field umpire
The West Indies international is best known for his hilarious antics on the field. Whatever he does, it becomes a sensation. During the ongoing CPL 2021 match between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Kings, Pollard distanced himself from the on-field umpire.
The reason behind Pollard’s antics will leave you stunned as well. The on-field umpire made a terrible blunder by not signalling a wide delivery. The incident during the fifth ball of the penultimate over when Wahab Riaz bowled a wide yorker to Tim Seifert.
The right-handed batsman tried to play the shot but ended up missing it completely. The umpire failed to signal wide for that delivery and to which Pollard couldn’t believe it at all. The Caribbean simply walked far away at the non-striker’s end and took everyone by surprise.
