Danny Morrison picks Kieron Pollard as the 'most overrated' cricketer of present generation
The former New Zealand cricketer also opened up on who according to him is the most underrated cricketer.
Kieron Pollard is considered one of the most destructive batters in the shortest format of the game. Currently the captain of the West Indies’ white-ball teams, he has blown the trumpet of his repertoire on many occasions. However, it seems that former New Zealand pacer Danny Morrison isn’t a fan of the West Indies all-rounder.
Pollard’s heroics in the white ball games is known to all. He is considered one of the most lethal players in the T20 format and is also renowned as a brilliant finisher. For his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Mumbai Indians as well, he has chipped in crucial runs to sail the team to victory several times.
Morrison, however, said that the West Indies all-rounder is an “overrated cricketer” of the present generation. He put forward his thoughts while speaking to Sportskeeda and his opinion went on to surprise quite a few. The former New Zealand cricketer also opened up on who according to him is the most underrated cricketer.
According to Morrison, India’s Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are the most underrated cricketers. Both of the players have been instrumental for MI in the IPL for a long now. Owing to their consistent performances in the high-profile tournament, they received the India call-up. Both the batters impressed the cricketing fraternity on their debuts and have emerged as some of the promising players for team India.
Danny Morrison picks his favorite IPL Franchise
The former New Zealand cricketer also named his favorite IPL franchise during the same conversation. He stated that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is his favorite IPL team. The side had a good run in the previous edition of the high-profile tournament. The presence of Glenn Maxwell ticked the massive box of middle-order batting for the team wherein they had struggled in the previous seasons.
The other area where RCB had a tough time in the past was their death bowling. However, Harshal Patel exuded his sheer flair and dominated the proceedings to take the responsibility of the death overs. He impressed everybody with his splendid performances in the mega event as he was also awarded the Purple Cap as the pacer finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament.
