Kieron Pollard Biography
They say that the modern cricketer is a journeyman who plies his trade in the several T20 leagues around the globe round the year; he is expected to be a handy bat who can keep things tight with the ball and save some crucial runs in the field.
Not only does Kieron Pollard fit the bill perfectly, he is more than a step ahead in all three aspects. He is a Twenty20 beast who can hit the ball as far as your sight goes, can be a frustrating bowler to get away, and a fielder who can take some spectacular catches; to top it all, he is one of those characters who can liven up even the dullest of phases.
Pollard’s first big moment was representing the West Indies in the Under-19 World Cup in 2006, but he was recognised only when he smashed 83 for Trinidad and Tobago during the Stanford T20 tournament in 2006. He also made a bright debut to his First-Class career, smashing a 71-ball 126.
The performances propelled his selection into the 2007 World Cup squad, where he made his international debut. Then, finally in 2009, Kieron Pollard dazzled the crowds with a whirlwind 18-ball 54 for Trinidad and Tobago against New South Wales — a knock that made him hot property for the IPL 2010 auctions where he was bagged by Mumbai Indians. Pollard has been one of their biggest stars and has played Twenty20 cricket in Australia, Bangladesh and England.
