Pollard quits international cricket

Mumbai West Indies white-ball captain Kieron Pollard announced on Wednesday his retirement from international cricket.

Pollard, who is currently playing for the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, made his announcement on social media.

“After careful deliberation, I’ve today decided to retire from international cricket,” he said in a statement on his official Instagram page.

“As is the case for many young persons, it was a dream of mine to play for West Indies, since I was a 10-year-old boy, and I am proud to represent the West Indies for over 15 years in (Twenty20) and One-day International format of the game.

He added: “I can still vividly remember making my international debut in 2007 under the leadership of my childhood hero, Brian Lara.

“Wearing those maroon colours and playing alongside such greats has been a privilege that I never took lightly, soul in every facet of the game – whether bowling, batting or fielding.”
