Kieron Pollard showed on Friday why he is considered one of the most dangerous players in T20 cricket. Chasing 219 runs against Chennai Super Kings, Pollard smashed 87 * off 34 balls as he helped Mumbai Indians to a thrilling four-wicket victory off the final ball. MI needed 16 runs to win in the final over, and despite Lungi Ngidi’s two dot balls, Pollard led his team to victory.
Speaking after the match, MI all-rounder Hardik Pandya described his performance as inspirational, saying he was left speechless.
After winning this kind of game you feel like I rest overnight. When he (Pollard) does something, you are really speechless, Pandya said after the match on Star Sports.
The best thing was that they have done it again and again over the years. Bloody brilliant I mean I would call someone inspirational for doing this consistently and would do something on his day that it would be amazing.
I think now we have come at the right time of the tournament. I think this game was very important for us. This pace is going to help us do what I think helps to do wonders. After special mention of Polly, I’m just proud of her.
