Cricket World Player of the Week - Kieron Pollard


For his all-round heroics and astute captaincy which took Trinbago Knight Riders to the CPL 2020 title, Kieron Pollard is the Cricket World Player of the Week.

A couple of years ago, it seemed as if Kieron Pollard was in the last legs of his competitive career. Runs were not coming off his bat and his physical shape also looked bad.

However, it did not take long for the big man to bounce back to form and fitness as he started producing vintage performances in the Indian Premier League.

He was back in the international fold as well and was ultimately appointed the captain of the West Indies white-ball side. Pollard has been a consistent performer at all levels over the last few months.

He led the Trinbago Knight Riders from the front as the team remained unbeaten throughout the Caribbean Premier League 2020, setting a new record. It always seemed inevitable as Trinbago Knight Riders beat St Lucia Zouks by 8 wickets in the final to lift the trophy.

Player of the tournament, Kieron Pollard finished as the third-highest run-scorer for Trinbago Knight Riders with 207 runs from seven innings at 51.75 and a strike rate of over 200, with 8 wickets at 18.87 to go along with it.

Pollard shone in the final as well. He picked up 4/30 in the final to break the back of the opposition batting. After his key role in TKR's title win, Pollard now gears up to feature for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020.
