Kieron Pollard’s ‘Slow batting’ against LSG raising lots of questions

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season. LSG defeated Mumbai by 36 runs in the match between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 24 April.

Coming to bat first, LSG set a target of 169 runs in 20 overs in front of Mumbai Indians, thanks to the century of their captain KL Rahul. Rahul played an unbeaten innings of 103 runs in 62 balls in which he hit 12 fours and 4 sixes.

In reply, Mumbai Indians team could only score 132 runs in 20 overs. Team captain Rohit Sharma scored 39 runs in 31 balls for Mumbai.

The team’s legendary batsmen have not been seen in their rhythm this year. Perhaps that is why the team has failed to win a single match so far. Mumbai has played a total of 8 matches so far and they have to face defeat in all.

Team’s legendary batsmen Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard have not been seen in their rhythm. Due to this, questions have also started being raised about Pollard’s batting.

Former New Zealand team captain Daniel Vettori said about Pollard that. Pollard did not bat against LSG the way he should have.

Kieron Pollard didn’t show his rush to score runs: Daniel Vettori

Daniel Vettori while talking to ESPN Cricinfo that. Even when you lose seven matches in a row, believing about Pollard that he will make you win the match by scoring 12-14 runs per over in the last over, then it can not happen. The Lucknow team bowled according to their strategy.

When Pollard came to the crease, everyone had some plan but it was not easy to execute it. However, in the end, it seemed that Pollard was not in a hurry to score runs and it seemed that he was only trying till the end.
