Pollard was also involved in a bizarre incident during the final over of Mumbai's innings. He looked displeased after the on-field umpire Nitin Menon had failed to signal a wide ball after the ball had landed outside the wide ball mark as he flung his bat up in the air in disgust. On the very next delivery, the Trinidadian all-rounder took stance on the wide-ball mark and backed away while Dwayne Bravo was about to bowl. Umpires Nitin Menon and Ian Gould were then seen having a chat with the big man.
