Fine imposed on Bravo ‘ridiculous’: Kieron Pollard

West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard has expressed his shock after his compatriot Dwayne Bravo was penalised 50 percent of his match fee for breaching the Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct during his team’s match against Mumbai Indians at Green Park Stadium in Kanpur.

Bravo admitted to the Level 2 offence (Article 2.2.7) for inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player in the course of play during a match.

Bravo seemed to nudge Kieron Pollard while the latter was batting. Gujarat went on to win the match to book their berth in the IPL 2016 playoffs.

Pollard took to twitter to express his reaction to the whole incident and said that he had witnessed even worse incidents on the field and termed the fine as ridiculous.

Pollard later said that T20 was all about entertainment and situations like those should be taken lightly.

Bravo also tweeted about the incident and expressed his disappointment but at the same time, he also reassured everyone that he and Pollard were great friends, contrary to what was being speculated.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
