The Mumbai Indians, five times IPL winners, have had a very disappointing performance in the current season. The performance of the versatile star of the team, Kieron Pollard, has not been special this season either. This season he has struggled with both the ball and the bat. In IPL 2022, Pollard has so far scored 144 runs in 11 matches at an average of 14.40 and a strike rate of 107.46. At the same time, he has only been able to take four wickets in his name. Pollard has pitched 7 innings of 11 games this season. During this he conceded 125 runs in 14 overs with an economy of 8.92.
Former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop gave his thoughts on this performance by Pollard. He said Pollard needs to start his game again. Bishop told ESPNcricinfo: “Pollard himself will have to rebuild his game, although he prefers to because he has so much cricket to play.” He said: “People say that he is disappointed with his performance, I am not going to go there. I think he is a player who can reinvent himself.”
He asked the media and fans to remember the contribution of this versatile player for the Mumbai Indians. “Yeah, they keep the faith and they’re loyal to a great player for them. We have a lot of memories, when I say in the media, some fans forget things quickly,” Bishop said.
You should watch Pollard’s performance when Mumbai won the championship. He hit 420 runs with an average of 42 in 2013, an average of over 30 in 2019 and 2020, and a strike rate of between 160 and 190. He is an integral part of the Mumbai Indians’ victory. His performance on crucial occasions cannot be forgotten. In such a situation, they should be given many opportunities. We tell you that the next game of Mumbai Indians will be on Thursday against Chennai Super Kings.
