West Indies Limited Overs Captain Kieron Pollard Retires From International Cricket


Kieron Pollard is a big name in West Indies Cricket. Not only because he is the captain of West Indies limited overs team, but also he is one of the most destructive batsman the West Indies team has in its current set-up. Moreover, he is a brilliant fielder and is handy with the ball as well. Therefore, it came a shocker to all the cricket fraternity when Pollard came up with the news of his retirement yesterday.

Moreover, with the T20 World Cup just a few months away and the ODI world cup in the latter part of next year, the decision is a bit more shocking. Pollard in his social media account wrote, ” After careful deliberation, I’ve today decided to retire from international cricket,” Pollard wrote on Instagram. “As is the case of many young persons, it was a dream of mine to represent the West Indies team from the time I was a boy of 10 years and I’m proud to have represented West Indies cricket for over 15 years in both the T20I and ODI forms of the game.”

He further wrote, “I can still vividly remember making my international debut in 2007 under the leadership of my childhood hero, Brian Lara. Wearing those maroon colours and playing alongside such greats has been a privilege that I never took lightly, giving my heart and soul in every facet of the game – whether bowling, batting or fielding.”Pollard went on to call captaining West Indies “the highest honour bestowed” on him and that he led with “passion, openness, courage, and everything I could ever possibly give both on and off the field without ever compromising my principles and integrity.”
