Kieron Pollard retires from international cricket

West Indies all-rounder and limited-overs captain Kieron Pollard on Wednesday announced his retirement from international cricket.

Pollard played 123 ODIs and 101 T20Is for West Indies. He made his ODI debut in April 2007 against South Africa and his T20I debut the following year against Australia in Bridgetown.

The cricketer never played a Test for West Indies and was one of the many white-ball specialists for his country.

“After careful deliberation I’ve today decided to retire from international cricket,” Pollard said in a video on Instagram.

“As is the case of many young persons it was a dream of mine to represent the West Indies team from the time I was a boy of 10 years and I’m proud to have represented West Indies cricket for over 15 years in both the T20 and ODI forms of the game,” he added.

The star all-rounder is currently playing for five-time champions Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL 2022.

 

  • From 33/0 in 3.3 overs, Punjab’s batting imploded spectacularly as Axar Patel, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav and Mustafizur Rahman picked two wickets each.

  • With this decision, men’s world number two Daniil Medvedev of Russia and women’s world number four Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus are the highest-ranked players to be affected.

  • The latest positive result takes the tally of Covid-19 positive cases in the Delhi camp to six.

  • Maria Sharapova and Gilkes, a British businessman, have been in a relationship since 2018.
