Pollard hits insularity for 6

BEFORE A BALL has been bowled in the Barbados’ leg of this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Kieron Pollard has hit insularity in the West Indies for a massive six.

Pollard was reacting to concerns that Ashley Nurse was the lone Barbadian in the starting line-up for Tridents Pride of Barbados franchise while five Trinidadians, including himself, played in the team’s last match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.  

“I think we in the Caribbean sometimes must get rid of this insular attitude and behaviour towards Bajans, Trinis, Jamaicans, Guyanese. This is franchise cricket and when you look all around the world, it is not about who is from where. It is about playing the best 11,” Pollard said yesterday at a media conference ahead of the Tridents’ match against the Jamaica Tallawahs at Kensington Oval.
