Kieron Pollard

Six Sixes in an over is not the easy task for a batsman in cricket but if we look at the current era of cricket where teams have been scoring 250 runs in a 20-20 overs match. It’s very easy for teams with batting friendly conditions and smaller grounds to go for the maximum at any point of the time during the match. 


When Sri Lanka lock horns with hosts (West Indies) in the first game of the T20l series at Antigua, thoughts were about some high-scoring match as Chris Gayle is returned to the team after two long years. But unfortunately West Indies decided to bowl first after winning the toss against the in-experience Sri Lanka expect some interesting characters in the game like Mathews and Chandimal. 

After the recent test series humiliation by South Africa and England. The visitors have started confidently but soon at the score of 20 they have lost their first opener who was caught by Pollard. The hosts looked to provide more dents into the line-up but Sri Lanka batsman rescue the team from early wicket and was looking good at the score of 71 runs for the loss of 1 wicket in 10 overs. 

The wicket at the score 71 runs had derailed the plan of big score for Sri Lanka as they were restricted at the 131 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their allotted 20 overs. Instead of Chris Gayle, West Indies opened the innings Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis who have provided the flying start to hosts with 52 runs in just 3.2 overs. 

The match was looked to all over before the 10th over. But in the next 10 balls West Indies have lost the 4 wickets which included Hattrick of Akila Dananjaya and the target was at once looked derailed. Then walked in Kieron Pollard to stop further dents and went complete crazy with his cameo of 38 off 11 balls which featured 6 sixes in an over of Akila Dananjaya to help West Indies chase down the target of 132 in 13.1 overs.
