Kieron Pollard is one of the finest cricketers to have represented the West Indies and is also one of the best entertaining performers in franchise cricket across the globe. He has showcased some splendid performances with his power-hitting abilities on the 22 yards, proving breakthroughs with his medium-pace bowling and taking some breathtaking catches on the field.
Lately, Pollard made a tremendous impact by turning into an off-spinner and the move worked extremely well in his favor as he was rewarded with a wicket in the Trinidad T10 Blast 2022 where the all-rounder is representing and leading Scarlet Ibis Scorchers. The West Indies limited-overs skipper would be hoping to make the most of his opportunities in this tournament ahead of the upcoming IPL 2022.
Kieron Pollard disturbs Leonardo Julien’s furniture with spin bowling
Meanwhile, this incident happened in the third Trinidad T10 Blast 2022 game between Scarlet Ibis Scorchers and Soca King at Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on February 27. Scorchers had invited the Soca King to have a bat after winning the toss and they obliged by getting off to a brisk start and surpassed the 50-run mark in no time.
Kieron Pollard who was bowling the fourth over decided to bowl spin and the strategy worked as the wicketkeeper-batter Leonardo Julien looked to work the ball towards the on-side on the penultimate delivery of that over and missed it completely as the ball went right through the gates.

Pollard bowled just one over and finished with figures of 1/10 at an economy rate of 10. While he did help Ibis Scorchers in drawing first blood, their joy did not last for too long as their bowlers were taken to the cleaners at regular intervals thereafter. Kings eventually posted a mammoth total of 150/3 in their allotted quota of 10 overs.
In reply, chasing a revised target, Kieron Pollard failed with the bat as he walked back for just eight runs to his name, and despite an unbeaten quickfire 53 runs off 26 deliveries by opener Nicholas Sookdeosingh, the Scarlet Ibis Scorchers were restricted to 80/3 from their eight overs as Scoa Kings registered a 42-run victory by D/L Method.
