Sri Lanka take on West Indies in a two-match T20I series starting on Wednesday. The SL vs WI first T20I will be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium and will mark a special occasion for West Indies captain Kieron Pollard. The SL vs WI first T20I will be Kieron Pollard’s 500th T20 match and he’ll be the first ever to achieve that feat in cricket.
Kieron Pollard is set to become the first player to reach the 500 T20s mark when he leads West Indies onto the field in the SL vs WI T20I. Pollard is the only cricketer with more than 7000 runs and 250 wickets in the format and is widely regarded as one of the best T20 players of all time. The West Indian all-rounder has achieved massive success in the T20s and has featured in as many as 23 tournament finals, the most by a player.
Kieron Pollard will play in his 500th T 20 game today which will be a first for any player. He also needs just 34 runs to reach 10,000 in T 20s after Chris Gayle. @rgcricket— Roshan Abeysinghe (@RoshanCricket) March 4, 2020
Kieron Pollard has played for 17 different T20 sides including the West Indies and has won 13 titles with six of those including the T20 World Cup. The West Indian all-rounder has been a regular feature for Mumbai Indians since 2010 and has made 170 appearances for the team, winning four IPL titles and two Champions League T20s. Kieron Pollard will be a central part of Mumbai Indians' plans for IPL 2020, as the franchise looks to defend their IPL 2019 title. The all-rounder is 34 short of reaching 10000 runs in T20 cricket and will become the second batsman after Chris Gayle to reach the tally.
