Pollard trolls Bravo after winning more T20 trophies than him; latter replies on Instagram
Kieron Pollard won his fifth IPL trophy with Mumbai Indians. After being with the side for around 11 years, the Caribbean has established himself as one of the productive all-rounders in truncated version of the game. Mumbai Indians all-rounder has contributed to the team in terms of bat, bowl and on the field as well.
Now that he has won his fifth trophy in IPL, it takes his overall tally to 15 T20 trophies to his name. Yes, you read it right. The West Indies all-rounder has been a formidable player in T20s all across the world. He is the only player to win these many honours. On the other hand, Dwayne Bravo won 14 T20 titles.
Shoaib Malik, Rohit Sharma and Lasith Malinga were the others who won 12, 10 and 9 T20 trophies. After clinching a trophy with Mumbai Indians, Kieron Pollard teased DJ Bravo as he beat him in terms of number of trophies won in T20s. At the post-match presentation, the cricket fraternity witnessed Pollard’s antics as the Caribbean sledged DJ Bravo by highlighting that he won more trophies than him.
“Kudos to the owners and management. Long may that continue. Dwayne Bravo you are behind me now (about number of T20 titles), I have to say that on camera (smiles),” Pollard said.
“It’s a great feeling. I’ve been here for 11 years and it is our fifth trophy. No one sees the planning and training, it’s pressure playing for a franchise like this. The amount of trophies, the amount of work, the amount of players who go on to play for their countries, I think we’ll have to say so [that this is the best T20 franchise],” said Caribbean after post-match.
Meanwhile, DJ Bravo who came across Pollard’s words had come up with a reply on photo and video blogging Instagram platform. The West Indies and Chennai Super Kings all-rounder wrote: “Congratulations 🍾 to my best friend @kieron.pollard55 on winning a next title!! @mumbaiindians well done 👍🏾 most important thing is we WIN TITLES.” Bravo’s response to Pollard went viral in no time on social media.
DJ Bravo didn’t have a best season at Chennai Super Kings this season. He played initial matches for the yellow army and was ruled out of the competition due to an injury. He played a total of 6 games this season and he picked 6 wickets to his name.
