Rohit Sharma reveals the real reason why Kieron Pollard was dropped on his Birth Day

The five time IPL title winner, Mumbai Indians, didn’t deliver the performance they were expected to do. Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League. They have won the IPL trophy for a record-breaking 5 times (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020). All the titles came under the leadership of Rohit Sharma.

However, in this season. MI are at the bottom of the points table. They only got six points and won only three games so far in this season. But they managed to beat Chennai last night.

It was pretty much a low scoring match, as the CSK only able to score 97 runs on board.

But just before the start of the game, something came up as a huge and shocking announcement from Mumbai’s side is that their finisher Kieron Pollard had to sit out due to consistent poor outings in the season.

The Caribbean all-rounder scored only 144 runs in 11 games, averaging around 15. Pollard has been a match winner for the team and represented MI for 13 years. But, the hard-hitting statement is that this has been Pollard’s poorest season in the history of the league.

“Keeping an eye on the future, Pollard is out and Stubbs is in. Kieron Pollard was the one who came up to us and he was ready for it. We want to try out a few players and see what they have to offer.” Added the MI captain Rohit Sharma.

Pollard has been one of the primary keys to the success of this organization over the past, he’s been part of the procedures through and through. As an individual and member of the core group, he was on board, it wasn’t easy on him but he made it simple for us. He’s been a terrific team man. Even today, it was nice to witness his efforts from the sidelines.” Said the director of MI, Zaheer Khan.
