Watch: Pollard trolls umpire with a bizarre batting stance
The intriguing IPL 2019 final between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings got off to a sensational start with Mumbai Indians winning the toss and opting to bat first.
Quinton de Kock (29) and Ishan Kishan (23) provided some decent starts countering to CSK bowling attack. Despite going for some sixes, Deepak Chahar managed to get back into the game by pocking 3/26.
Shardul also joined the bandwagon and picked 2/37 after which Imran Tahir picked 2/23 and in the process, he went on to become the Purple Cap holder with 26 wickets to his name this season surpassing DC’s Kagiso Rabada.
We are quite familiar with the fact that the game can really go interesting when two Caribbeans go head to head against each other. Well, the game of cricket saw yet another bizarre incident between Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo.
Dwayne Bravo who very well know about Pollard’s hitting approach managed to frustrate him by bowling two balls which were not called wides, considering that Pollard shifted his position to the left, thereby making it easier for the umpire to not give wides for two balls.
Seeing this, Pollard got frustrated and tossed his bat high in the air before getting caught in his hands, showing that he was clearly shocked about the Nitin Menon’s decision. After which, Pollard showed his strange side in the game by moving further away from the stumps and then stopped the play as if he was not ready to play.
Both the on-field umpires went up to Kieron Pollard and brought the situation to normal. However, the Caribbean vent out his frustration in the form of hitting Bravo for 2 consecutive fours on the last two balls of the final over to take the three-time IPL Champions to 149/7 in allotted quota of overs.
Kieron Pollard was at the architect of scoring quick runs for his team, by chipping in with 25-ball 41 with 3 fours and 3 sixes.
