The ODI series between India and West Indies has once again become extremely interesting as the former made an impressive comeback in the second match, scored 387 runs while batting first and wrapped up their opposition for 280. While the performance was exceptional on its own, it, more importantly, has brought the series to a tie with the decider scheduled to take place at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack, Odisha on Sunday, December 22. India & West Indies teams arrive in #Bhubaneswar for 3rd ODI https://t.co/6elOl9e5ik pic.twitter.com/gD815fNkFy — Odisha Diary (@odishadiary) December 19, 2019 And even though the winning-momentum during the past two matches has been swinging like a pendulum, what makes the contest between the two sides so exciting is the brewing rivalry between the players from each team. Be it Mohammed Shami staring Shai Hope right in the eyes after surprising him with a sudden bouncer or Kesrick Williams' 'Finger on your lips' celebration during the T20I series, the two teams surely know the right buttons to push to get a reaction out of their rivals. height of trolling..

To be frank, the rivalry is more of Kohli celebrating the achievements of his teammates and Pollard getting annoyed by it but because we are nice to our guests, we shall call it a dead-even strife. ”You have to ask him why he is so animated. I can't answer that for you. It is what it is. You ask him that question and let him answer that. I don't know. I have no clue,” said @KieronPollard55 on @imVkohli's animated celebrations. #INDvWI https://t.co/bF69HN5EcS — Circle of Cricket (@circleofcricket) December 19, 2019 During the second match that took place in Visakhapatnam, Kohli was dismissed on the first ball that he faced. However, he seemed to be overjoyed when Kieron Pollard faced the same fate later in the day. Virat Kohli 0 (1) Kieron Pollard 0 (1) For the first time in ODI History, both Captains have been OUT for a GOLDEN DUCK ð¦. #IndvWI — Israr Ahmed Hashmi (@IamIsrarHashmi) December 18, 2019 After the loss, Pollard said: "You have to ask him why he is so animated. I can't answer that for you. It is what it is. You ask him that question and let him answer that. I don't know. I have no clue." Both Kohli and Pollard are masters of their work, albeit in different ways. One depends on his strength, and the other depends on his timing and technique. With three days to go for the final match of the series, it will be interesting to see how this particular rivalry unfolds. View the full article
The 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.
An 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!

Back in 2010, Virender Sehwag was batting on 99 runs and looked destined to register his hundred during India's third ODI against Sri Lanka in Dambulla when spinner Suraj Randiv deliberately bowled a no-ball to deny the Indian opener his well-deserved ton. Sri Lanka lost the match, but, more importantly, got one of their players in the history books for an infamous act that has no place in the gentleman's game. Fast-forward to 2017 and the controversial incident involving Randiv is back into the spotlight - courtesy Kieron Pollard. The West Indies all-rounder attracted all sorts of criticism after bowling deliberately bowling a no-ball to deny an opposition batsman a chance to possibly record the second-fastest hundred in T20 cricket. It was a T20 clash between Barbados Tridents and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League where the infamous incident took place. Evin Lewis was batting on 97 off 32 balls when the Patriots needed just one run to outclass the Tridents. While the Patriots batsman was looking to register a brilliant hundred, Tridents skipper Pollard was more than happy to accept defeat rather than allowing Lewis to notch up his hundred. In order to successfully orchestrate his notorious plans, Pollard overstepped by quite some distance and deliberately bowled a no-ball to draw curtains on the game. So Kieron Pollard bowls a no-ball to deny Evin Lewis a hundred in CPL. S Randiv was suspended for a match when he did that to Sehwag in 2010 — Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) September 4, 2017 Lewis remained unbeaten on 97 including 11 monstrous sixes as Patriots won the game by a comprehensive margin of 10 wickets. But, in the end, the day that was supposed to be remembered for the batting prowess of a cricketer was marred by the unsporting gesture of another. You should be ashamed of yourself @KieronPollard55 .... the kid deserved a ton.. #cpl17 — Innocent Bystander (@InnoBystander) September 4, 2017 In a televised post-match interview, he said: "It hurts [missing out on the hundred], but hitting 97 not out off 33 balls? I'll take that any day. Kieron Pollard is a nasty man oui. Evin Lewis one shot away from a century and the man bowls a no-ball — Darren (@fudgie8) September 4, 2017 "I've been hitting the ball long and hard in the nets. I'm confident now and looking forward to the play-offs." While what #KieronPollard did last night is disgusting at all levels. What is shameful is that Evin Lewis is young and a fellow #trini! — Denise Besai (@deniseb1305) September 4, 2017 If Lewis had completed his century in 33 balls, it would have been the second fastest of all time - just behind Chris Gayle's 30-ball IPL knock in 2013. Cricket commentator Danny Morrison also slammed Pollard for his antics after the incident. "Lewis' innings deserved a hundred and I've got to say, as positive and excited as I am, it's a pretty disappointing way for Pollard to finish the game," he said.
The tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed just seven games so far. But, while the on-field banter and friendly exchanges continue to enthral the fans, the 2017 edition of the tournament got its first taste of controversy on Monday. Though the sight of a cricketer taking on the opposition player is pretty common, but to see a player lock horns with a commentator is something novel. And, that's exactly what happened after the Mumbai Indians' clash with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). © Twitter While the Rohit Sharma brigade was busy celebrating the heroics of Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya who snatched a thrilling four-wicket win against Kolkata, their all-rounder Kieron Pollard was raring to go at the Indian commentator Sanjay Manjrekar. The Trinidadian cricketer attacked Manjrekar with a torrent of tweets, lashing out at the commentator for his on-air observations about the West Indian. © Twitter During the match, Manjrekar said: "When I think of Pollard, I think of a six-seven-over-left batsman", suggesting that the West Indies all-rounder is a limited player. Irked by his comments, Pollard took to Twitter and destroyed Manjrekar with a barrage of tweets, including the one where he labelled his comments as a 'verbal diarrhea'. @sanjaymanjrekar u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea .. — Kieron Pollard (@KieronPollard55) April 9, 2017 "Words are very powerful...once it leaves u can't take it back...sin of parents fall on..." Pollard further said, then asked Manjrekar to complete the sentence. Do you know how I get big so.. about BRAINLESS.. words are very powerful .. once it leaves u can't take it back.. sins of parents fall on... — Kieron Pollard (@KieronPollard55) April 9, 2017 Well, it's way too early in the tournament to witness a Twitter rant between a player and a commentator, but by the looks of it, we are in for some action as far as these two are concerned.
