ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThe Indian Premier League between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians was full of mishaps that people could not help but notice and talk about. The simple catches that were dropped by the fielders, the botched running between the wickets and some 'no-calls' by the umpires that raised a few eyebrows last night. Even though Rohit Sharma's MIPaltan were able to defend their nominal score of 149 runs against Mahendra Singh Dhoni's CSK and won their 4th IPL championship, people could not get over an incident in particular. When Windies hitter, Kieron Pollard was on the crease, trying to help side make the second innings for the Whistle Podu franchise as difficult as possible, the umpires missed out on an obvious 'wide-ball'. In the final over MI's innings, Pollard was facing his former teammate Dwayne Bravo, who delivered an extra wide ball which was nowhere close to the line that guides the umpire's decision while giving an extra run. Seeing the ball pass through such a distance, Kieron decided to let the ball go, looking at the umpire to raise his hands sideways but the official did not. Upset with the no-call, Pollard threw his bat six feet up in the air. Getting ready for the next delivery, he stood at the spot where Bravo has delivered the previous ball. As the CSK began his run-up, Pollard just walked away from the crease to bother the umpire a little more. Great protest by #KieronPollard https://t.co/JVodr3kcMW via @ipl — Aditya Pandey (@adityapandey148) May 13, 2019 Agitated with the batsman's behaviour, both officials approached the athlete with stern faces and reprimanded him for the unprofessional actions. Enraged with the missed call, Pollard decided to send the final two deliveries of the over to the boundary collating eight runs of them. Later the match referee Javagal Srinath fined the Windies player 25% of his match fee for breaching the IPL's Code of Conduct as he showed dissent towards the umpires but Twitter believes that Pollard's anger and frustration were justified: Kieron Pollard's answer to poor umpiring when the umpire didn't declare it as wideð #CSKvMI #IPL2019Final #MIvCSK pic.twitter.com/wLg1LXr8Lk — Sir Jadeja fan (@SirJadeja) May 12, 2019 It was required and the world to know, poor umpire s.

The 2019 season of the Indian Premier League has to be special and unforgettable for both, the former West Indies ODI hero, Kieron Pollard and the young and eccentric, Hardik Pandya, both of whom found themselves hitting long shots on a regular basis in the ongoing month and a half long tournament. While playing for the same franchise, Pollard and Pandya, and Mumbai Indians, have been loyal to each other through the thick and thins of the team's 12-year-long journey and have reaped the benefits of being a part of the most successful IPL team with three championships (tied with MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings). © Twitter/IPL And while this season has not been MI's best, they are still on their way to qualifying for the top four spot of the IPL playoffs by winning 7 of their 12 matches and a total of 14 points in their hands and it is safe to say that on a lot of occasions, the MIPaltan needed some superhuman performances to get out of trouble and the duo of Pandya and Pollard got to work, especially in the death overs. “Even when he came onto the scene, if you remember, in a couple of games for Mumbai (Indians), he finished off with his big hits. He is a small guy but hits the ball a long way. And once he continues to practice well and continues to evolve as a cricketer, you can see him doing great things not only for Mumbai Indians but (also for) Indian cricket,” the Windies legend praised a 25-year-old Hardik Pandya. © Twitter/IPL Pandya, who was in a bit of a fix ahead of the league began as he suffered from a stiff lower back and a life-time of humiliation for his comments at a popular talk-show, has finally collated enough courage to go out there and let his bat do the talking. “It is matter (sic) of him having the confidence and you giving him the confidence for him to believe in himself, because he is one of those guys who is free-spirited and just goes out and tries to use his youthful exuberance to have an impact on the game,” said Pollard, who has been by Pandya's side for ages now.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAn integral part of Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the years, Kieron Pollard hasn't quite come to the party as far as the ongoing season is concerned. While the likes of Andre Russell, Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo have made an impact, Pollard has struggled to get going in the initial stage of the tournament. The right-handed batsman couldn't score more than 21 runs as Mumbai succumbed to a 37-run loss in their opening match. While Mumbai bounced back in the second match with a six-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Pollard was only able to add a six-ball five to his team. The big West Indian's struggles continued in the third match where he was dismissed for a nine-ball seven against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Twitter/@IPL Struggling with the bat and not getting a chance to bowl, Pollard's batting slump attracted immense criticism, with the cricket pundits suggesting he should be dropped for the crucial tie against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on 3rd April. But, Rohit Sharma and Mumbai's team management continued to trust Pollard and the Trinidadian didn't disappoint. Repaying the faith of his captain, Pollard was part of a carnage that was finished by swashbuckling Hardik Pandya. While the West Indies cricketer slammed a seven-ball 17, Pandya ran riot during his eight-ball 25. The duo hammered Dwayne Bravo all around the park to score a staggering 29 runs off the final over. That was something Impossible Only this man can pull Something like this The Name is Kieron Pollard ð¥#MIvCSK #CricketMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/RvwGXsxnHL — RaijinAntony #MI â¤ (@RaijinAntony10) April 3, 2019 If his batting silenced the critics, Pollard's absolute blinder of a catch during Chennai's chase further enhanced his reputation as a key contributor to the Mumbai brigade. In the fifth over, the 31-year-old was stationed at the point boundary when Suresh Raina slapped Jason Behrendorff's length ball ferociously in his direction. Wow ð¥ð¥ à¤à¤ à¤²à¤à¤¾ à¤¦à¥ à¤à¤ à¤à¤à¤ªà¥à¤à¤² à¤®à¥à¤ pic.twitter.com/zxlD9bGuro — Devendra nagar ð®ð³ (@Devendr39642732) April 3, 2019 With the ball travelling at high pace, Pollard barely had any time to assess its height and realise it was going over his head. But, timing his jump to perfection, the Mumbai all-rounder produced enough airtime (something that would surely make Michael Jordan feel proud) that it allowed him to pluck the ball in thin air during an incredible one-handed effort. While Mumbai brought an end to Chennai's three-match winning streak after an emphatic 37-run triumph, Pollard's unbelievable fielding effort earned him plaudits on the social media. Helps to be tall! Also helps if you can catch like that! #KieronPollard — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 3, 2019 What. A. Catch.
