IPL 2021: Kieron Pollard’s marvelous bowling might have altered fate of the match
Kieron Pollard who was called on to bowl for the team in the twelfth over has taken two major wickets of Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina to his credit.
Kieron Pollard has proved himself not only to be a game-changer but a game saver for Mumbai Indians. He was called on to bowl for the team in the twelfth over after the team was in a crucial state when only two wickets had fallen and Faf was standing tall hitting the ball over the boundary again and again.
The Trinidadian all-rounder was destructive with his bowling today and sent Faf after he played a lap-shot on a ball that wasn’t fast enough. Suresh Raina was also sent early back to the dressing room after he could manage a small score of 2 runs.
This bowling might have just altered the fate of Mumbai who was struggling to send Faf du Plessis who was playing massive shots back to the dressing room. Moreover, the recent fall of wickets has also put Chennai under pressure to set a good chase score.
