West Indies all-rounder 34-year-old Kieron Pollard has announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket but he will continue to freelance in private T20 and T10 leagues. Currently, in the Indian Premier League (IPL), he is playing for the Mumbai Indians team.
Pollard was appointed as the captain of both the ODI and T20 teams in 2019. He was the former T20I captain, a West Indian trailblazer in white-ball cricket and became the first player to represent West Indies in over 100 T20I matches.
He made his ODI debut back in 2007 and he played 123 ODIs and 101 T20Is for the team in his career. He was a key member of the team that won the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup in 2012.
He became the third player in the history of the men’s international game to hit six sixes in a single over in March 2021 against Sri Lanka. The other two players were Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh.
