KIERON POLLARD: THE ICON OF T20 CRICKET | TKR | CPL 2023
In modern day T20 cricket, one name stands tall as a true all-round force - Kieron Pollard. Hailing from the cricketing powerhouse of the West Indies, Pollard's colossal presence on the field and his multifaceted skills have made him a standout performer in the international arena.
Born on 12th May 1987, in Tacarigua, Trinidad & Tobago, Pollard has left his mark everywhere he’s played. With his enormous height and broad shoulders, Pollard is an intimidating presence who motivates his teammates while striking fear into the hearts of bowlers. His batting is a lovely blend of planned grace and ferocity. Pollard is equipped with a variety of strokes, and his uncanny ability to go past the ropes is a threat to any bowling unit, particularly in limited-overs games.
The underlying strength of Pollard is his extraordinary all-around talent. He is a true fast bowler who frequently astounds batters with his blistering pace and deceptively slower deliveries. He is trusted with key overs as a utility bowler, whether they are at the beginning, middle, or end of the innings, making him an invaluable asset for any captain.
Pollard's impact transcends the cricketing world, as he is a sought-after player in T20 leagues across the globe. His presence in franchise cricket elevates the excitement, making him a favorite among fans worldwide. The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has been Pollard's stomping ground, where he has been a talisman for the Trinbago Knight Riders. His match-winning performances, both with the bat and ball, have played a pivotal role in the team's title triumphs.
As a new season commences, the TKR skipper, will be looking forward to performing for the Trinbago Knights as he has always done and would be hoping to get the best out of each and every individual in the squad, putting TKR on the way to yet another title victory.
