Pollard: Let’s do it together
KIERON POLLARD is carrying the load of the Barbados Tridents on his big shoulders. He wants his teammates, however, to pull their weight too.
The captain bludgeoned his third half-century in five outings of the 2017 Caribbean Premier League, smashing an unbeaten 63 off 40 balls but it was all in vain after St Kitts and Nevis Patriots won a rain-affected contest by 17 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method at Warner Park in St Kitts in the wee hours of yesterday morning.
Pollard’s lusty hitting that included six sixes, two of them over deep midwicket in the last over from the left-arm chinaman and googly bowler Tabraiz Shamsi, lifted the Tridents to a competitive 168 for six.
With Chris Gayle at the forefront of the Patriots’ response, the hosts raced to 84 for one from 9.3 overs when rain intervened. The showers abated but returned again, forcing the umpires to call off the game just before 1 a.m., leaving Pollard’s effort amounting to nought for the Tridents. (HG)
