Kieron Pollard’s terrible form in the IPL 2022 season continues, as he was dismissed by Rashid Khan for 4 runs in 14 balls in the match against Gujarat Titans.
Pollard scored just 129 runs in 10 innings, with a 14.33 average and 109.32 strike rate, indicating that this is already his poorest IPL in his career.
Kieron Pollard came in to bat at No 5, prompting Hardik to recall Rashid Khan.
Pollard has had difficulties with Rashid in the past, and it was revealing when the huge West Indian began to struggle against the Afghan bowler’s turn and trickery.
After Rashid bowled four consecutive dots, Pollard attempted a cover drive, but missed the pitch and the ball touched the stumps.
Hardik was clever enough just to pull things in place with his strategic actions after MI openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got the team off to a strong start. When Ishan Kishan fell for 45 from 29 balls, it was one of the best moves of the game.
