Watch: Kieron Pollard Gives A Mouthful To Burly Rakheen Cornwall In A Controversial Send-Off
Weighing 143 kgs and playing the top level club can be tough. Rakheem Cornwall, known as the “Vast Man,” faced a tense situation when Kieron Pollard blasted him for leaving the field retired hurt after huffing and puffing to take runs between the wickets.
The Pollard led Barbados Trident registered a 29-run victory over St Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Premier League last night. The game ended smoothly in favor of Tridents despite an early fight from Stars which was ironically led by Cornwall.

The event was proceeding smoothly until West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard hot involved in controversy as he got into an argument with Rahkeem Cornwell during the final moments of the game.
Cornwall decided to retire hurt after facing complete exhaustion. Therefore, making way for hard hitting Darren Sammy. Trident skipper Pollard was not amused at all gave a mouthful to the 24-year-old who was taken off by the physio batsman.

Earlier, opener Dwayne Smith smashed 103 from 65 balls to set up the winning foundation for the Tridents. The veteran cricketer clubbed eight sixes and 5 fours while Nichola Pooran contributed 32 from 20 balls.
In response, the St. Lucia Stars had a great start inspired by Raheem before Tridents made their way back into the game and pocketed the victory.
