Mumbai Indians’ swashbuckling all-rounder Kieron Pollard hit the nets and trained for the first time ahead of the team’s lung-opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL starting in Chennai on Friday.
The 33-year-old West Indian, the most capped player for the five-time defending champions, completed his quarantine before starting training. A video of the right-handed batsman, playing a variety of shots, was uploaded by the defending champions on their official Twitter handle on Thursday.
Big man. Big hits. Big match player. 🔥
