Kieron Pollard Stuns The World Again With His Dramatic Protest In CPL

Franchise tournaments across the globe have always promise some extraordinary brand of cricket that has been laced with some sublime entertainment and histrionics. Especially with Kieron Pollard around, you would never run short of entertainment and drama.


Being candid, it isn’t exactly drama for him because he believes in protesting the wrong decisions made by the umpires or match-officials but it has a tint of bizarreness surrounding it.

In a match that happened yesterday, Trinbago Knight Riders imposed a thumping drubbing upon their counterparts, St Lucia Kings by a comprehensive margin of 27 runs. It needed some late pyrotechnics from Mumbai Indians all-rounder, Kieron Pollard and New Zealand wicket-keeping batsman, Tim Seifert to bail them out of the initial sluggishness.


It was the fifth ball of the 18th over in the Knight Riders innings that saw Seifert soaring on 31 while Pollard was unbeaten at the non-striker’s end for 41. Wahab Riaz was the bowler and the ball that he bowled surged a mile past the wide line and a stretched Seifert couldn’t reach it.

The drama pulled off by Pollard

Even with a naked eye, it was a clear wide despite a lunge from Seifert because the ball went outside him. The umpire didn’t even budge and Riaz was a happy man. This is where the drama started unfolding.


Pollard started taking a long walk and was not to be seen at the non-striker’s end. He almost walked a proverbial mile and waited at the far end while Riaz was gearing up to wheel in with the last ball of the over.

Pollard has always stunned the world with his surreal celebrations and protests as previously he was seen protesting a decision in IPL by donning a cello-tape on his mouth. Despite all the theatrics, Knight Riders secured a comfortable victory by thumping the Kings, thanks to the bowling quarter of Ravi Rampaul, Isuru Udana, Sunil Narine and Akeal Hossain.
