TATA IPL 2022: Kieron Pollard’s poor batting form in the season continues

At the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions, won the toss and elected to bowl first against the Lucknow Super Giants.

Kieron Pollard of the Mumbai Indians has hit 57 runs in five innings with an average of 14.25 and a strike rate of 121.28, with 22 as his highest run.

Pollard’s poor form isn’t the only reason for Mumbai Indians’ disappointing performance so far in the IPL 2022, but it’s not helping a squad that is attempting to rebuild following consequent defeats.

Pollard has been retained by the Mumbai Indians for 6 crores in the IPL 2022 mega auction. Along with skipper Rohit Sharma, pace star Jasprit Bumrah, and middle-order standout Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard was one of MI’s mandatory retentions for IPL 2022.

MI will be hoping to win their first match of the season today when facing Lucknow Super Giants, who are now sixth in the points standings with three victories and two defeats.
