Ian Bishop needs no introduction at all. The former West Indies pace star is one of the most popular commentators in the world right now. Bishop is being loved all around the world for his commentary and is thus a very popular face among the fans. His exploits as a bowler was equally impressive. The ex-cricketer finished his cricket career with 161 Test wickets and 118 ODI wickets.
But despite all these, it looks like Ian Bishop is not that popular after all and a recent incident that happened with him would definitely make him realise that. The West Indies legend was travelling to Hyderabad for the upcoming first T20I between India and West Indies when a fellow traveller sitting next to him could not identify him.
While the traveller did realise that Bishop is related to cricket, he mistook him for another player. The fan asked the 52-year old Ian Bishop whether he was Kieron Pollard. Bishop himself took to Twitter to reveal the hilarious incident and could not contain his laughter as he wrote:
“On the way to Hyderabad. Got asked by the elderly gentleman sitting next to me on the plane at 3.30am if I was kieron Pollard????.”

India favourites against West Indies:
India will be the firm favourites against West Indies in the upcoming T20I and ODI series. Both the teams will play three T20Is and as many ODIs this month. The Men in Blue have thoroughly dominated West Indies in recent years. In the most recent meeting between the two sides, India had completely outplayed West Indies.
Both the teams had locked horns against each other in the Caribbeans right after the end of the World Cup. They played three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests and India won all of them but the one ODI which was washed out. No surprises then that West Indies would find it even tougher to beat India in their own backyard.
