Kieron Pollard, the Caribbean all-rounder is assumed to back in form after scratching a match-winning century for Trinidad & Tobago in the Caribbean first-class competition. He had been eliminated six months back because of an injury to his knees and he has taken only two matches to score big.
The news, undoubtedly, has brought a splash on his Indian Premier League franchise side, Mumbai Indians, who is set to begin a new epoch, without retired batting legend Sachin Tendulkar in this season.
“Not being attached to international cricket for six months, I was very depressed but things pass. I got wounded and now I come back. I just wanted to do my best. I could not hit my goal in the first match, I just wanted to last on the cricket fields for four days and I as a matter of fact did that. And I came to scratch my goal in the second match and I racked up a big (runs), thank God for that. I’ve been through a lot, but these things happen.” Pollard said.
Pollard had appeared last before upholding his wounds in the Champions League final in which he grabbed three wickets to put together Mumbai Indians’ initiatory title win. “We’re the defending champions so the constraint is always there,” he said. “You always want to victor that competition. For me, it’s to serve whatever is needed, it’s Twenty20 cricket, it’s not every day you’re going to prove out so it’s what the team needs at that point in time and regulate their game to suit. I’m three-dimensional in terms of batting, bowling and fielding so I just want to go out there and do my best.” Pollard stated.
He is ace of those five players sustained by the franchise before the 2014 auction and he seems very excited about the new edition of the IPL.
The knee injury of him continued during a charity soccer match. Having asked about this, Pollard said, “For me, I guess soccer is off the cards for now. I’m focusing on cricket. Football has suffered me six months, a massive career-threatening injury so some things you just have to take on the abeyance, and you wade through from that. At the end of the day, I still watch football. I’m a Manchester United fan so that will be enough.”
