West Indies on Indian tour Kieran Pollard The ODI and T20I series played under the captaincy of (Kieron Pollard) have been badly lost. Out of the total 6 matches played in India, West Indies could not win a single match, which is quite disappointing. Although Pollard could not play 2 matches due to injury in the ODI series, in which the command of the Caribbean team was in the hands of Nicholas Pooran. In such a situation, even after losing all the matches in the ODI series and T20I series, Kieron Pollard is happy with the performance of his team.
Why is Kieron Pollard happy even after losing all matches in India?
Let us tell you that India has made a clean sweep of West Indies in the ODI series as well as the T20I series, which is a very good performance for the Indian team, but on the other hand, from the point of view of the Windies team, it is a matter of concern. However, from the words of West Indies captain Kieran Pollard, it did not seem that it was a matter of concern for him. Kieron Pollard, while talking to the virtual correspondent after the match yesterday, said that,
“Yes we lost 3-0 but the players showed their mettle. I don’t think we should feel humiliated. We are not happy with the loss. We are trying to win the match.”
In the second T20I match, West Indies lost to India by just 8 runs. Half-centuries from Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell almost won the team, but in the end Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s experience came in handy once again for India. In such a situation, Pollard further said that,
“It shows the slight difference between victory and defeat in international cricket. This shows the difference between mistakes in bowling or batting. Doing well in the last overs is one area we need to work on. As far as the first 15 overs are concerned, we think we performed as we wanted.
Nicolas Pooran and Suryakumar Yadav praised fiercely
Even if things have not gone well for West Indies on the Indian tour, but still one thing has gone in their favor, that is Nicholas Pooran’s return to form once again. Let us inform that Nicholas Pooran has scored 184 runs in the 3-match T20I series against India batting at a staggering average of 61.33. Pooran has scored 3 half-centuries against India in three consecutive matches. In such a situation, regarding the form of his sharp player, Pollard said that,
“I think it was a good series. The players took charge. We are making good progress and it will take some time for things to settle down. He said, ‘Nicholas performed exceptionally. He showed consistency. He is a young player and we want him to continue to perform well. He’s still learning.”
At the same time, Suryakumar Yadav of India has also shone fiercely in this T20I series. He has scored 107 runs in this series while batting at a strike rate of 200. Along with this, he has also been the “Man of the Series” in this series. In such a situation, in relation to this tremendous performance of his IPL franchise Mumbai Indians teammate Suryakumar Yadav, Pollard said that,
“Surya is a world class player. I got a chance to play with him for Mumbai Indians. He is performing brilliantly. All batsmen can learn from him.”
