West Indies white-ball captain Kieron Pollard commented on England’s rotation policy that people who do not live in a bio bubble are unaware of the difficulties associated with it. The England players have been rotating their multi-format players across formats and now recently against Sri Lanka and India which had a toll on their performance in the second Test loss against India.
Due to the rotation policy, important players like Johny Bairstow, Sam Curran were rested for the first two tests, and Jos Buttler was sent back after the first test. The recent addition to the list was Moeen Ali who performed well in the second test but took a decision to leave the squad for the remaining two Tests and will return for the limited-overs series. This has raised a lot of eyebrows among the cricket experts.
Kieron Pollard Reckons Not To Get Upset When Players Take Break
Kieron Pollard has reckoned that the bio bubble is very difficult and people who are not part of the bio bubble will not know the amount of sacrifice is done. He added taking breaks for players who are part of the bio bubble is acceptable and people shouldn’t worry about that.
Life in the bubble is very, very difficult. I have heard a lot of people’s comments about it. They have not lived in a bubble, they don’t understand what you have to go through. But again, it is what it is. We have to try to live with it, as much as possible and as long as possible. When guys decide to take breaks from bubbles, I don’t think people should be upset. But again, only when you are in that position, you can understand,” said Kieron Pollard.
“You meet people and you get to understand their lives” – Kieron Pollard

Pollard also told that unless he is performing, there is nothing to worry about sharing camaraderie and added that he has been trying to understand the lives in different parts of the world.
It is something I have gotten used to. Once you know what you are about in terms of performing for your team and playing your role, it is fine. Camaraderie and everything else comes second. As individuals travelling the world, you meet people and you get to understand their lives, understand their cultures. For me, I have been in it for a while now and have been able to adapt and work any situation and try and be the best I can be,” Kieron Pollard added.
