Kieron Pollard, a West Indian cricketer, lost his father on Tuesday. The cricketer posted a photo of him and his father posing with the IPL 2019 winners’ trophy on Instagram to confirm his father’s death. He wrote in the caption: “Relax and unwind in peace and grace. Still, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always Many people’s hearts and minds were touched. I’ll be doing my best to make you happy. There will be no more “tall guy” I’m sure you’re in a happier position now.
After completing his father’s last rites, West Indies’ white-ball captain is set to travel to India for the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League.
With over 100 matches under his belt, the all-rounder is and has been an incredibly valuable part of the Mumbai Indians’ team. So far in his 164-match IPL career, he has scored 3023 runs and taken 60 wickets.
The Trinidad-born cricketer last appeared in an international match in March, when he represented his country in an ODI against Sri Lanka. He led his team to a five-wicket victory with an undefeated 53.
Pollard played the T20I series against the same opposition just before the ODI series and became just the third batsman after Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh to hit six sixes in an over.
It was Akila Dananjaya on the receiving end, who had scored a hat-trick just a few minutes ago in the same contest.
