West Indies captain Kieron Pollard began his post-match interview with a song after a thrilling win against England in the series decider. Incidentally, the hosts managed to beat Eoin Morgan & Co by 17 runs to win the five-match series 3-2.
Riding on a record-breaking performance from Jason Holder, the Calypso Kings held their nerves to trump the visitors. The series win will bring some relief to the West Indies camp that has been marred by controversies in the recent past. A relieved captain Kieron Pollard celebrated that win in a unique manner perhaps no other captain in the history of the game would’ve done so far.
The legendary all-rounder began his interview with the ‘Solid As a Rock’ song from renowned Jamaican musician Sizzla. He went in front of the mic and hummed his own rendition of the famous song.
“I say, they can’t keep a good man down. Always keep a smile when they want me to frown..,” Kieron Pollard sang.

“Many have given up on this team” – Kieron Pollard after series win
West Indies have not performed upto their potential in the last few months. They failed to make any impression in the T20 World Cup and followed it with below-par returns against Ireland, the Caribbean side locked horns with England under immense pressure.
But the cricketers rallied around each and produced the results that will provide them the needed confident for the upcoming series against India. Kieron Pollard was also a happy captain and credited the players for giving their 100 percent.
“It’s wonderful, many have given up on this team, but every single individual has rallied around, there have been a lot of negative things written about us, but this win is for everyone out in the dressing room. They have worked tirelessly coming from Jamaica (after the Ireland series), and have bounced back pretty well. We now have an understanding as to how to get the game going, we have come close to winning several times before, but came short at times. We have learnt from all these things,” Pollard said after the game.
