After a 15-year stint with the West Indies team, Kieron Pollard retired from international cricket in 2022, making his last appearance in a T20I against India at Eden Gardens in February of that year. His association with the Mumbai Indians also came to an end in 2022 after a disappointing season.
Kieron Pollard struggled to make an impact, scoring only 144 runs in 11 innings with an average of 14.40. Consequently, he bid farewell to playing in the IPL. Despite the challenging season, the 36-year-old was appointed as the batting coach by the MI management. Notably, Pollard had been a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise since his IPL debut in 2010 until his final game in the league.
Taking to his official Instagram handle on Saturday, Pollard shared a mysterious quote on his story addressing the challenges faced after demonstrating loyalty. Here's what Pollard shared on Instagram.
The post has come just weeks after Mumbai Indians sacked Rohit Sharma as captain. The franchise appointed Hardik Pandya as the new skipper after buying him from Gujarat Titans in all-cash deal. Hardik Pandya played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL before moving to Gujarat Titans ahead of the IPL 2022 season.
Hardik helped Gujarat Titans win the IPL in their maiden season. They defeated Rajasthan Royals in the final. In IPL 2023, Gujarat Titans once again reached the summit clash but lost to Chennai Super Kings.
