West Indian limited-overs captain Kieron Pollard is one of the cleanest and lethal strikers of the ball. Even Kieron Pollard’s mishits often result comfortably over the ropes. One of the most experienced T20 veterans, Pollard showcased his six-hitting skill by hitting it with a single hand in the current CPL edition. Pollard plays for and captains the Trinbago Knight Riders.
It was Trinbago Knight Riders’ third game after scoring comfortable victories over Guyana Amazon Warriors in the opening match and Jamacia Tallawahs two days later. Their third fixture was against Barbados Tridents in which skipper Kieron Pollard applied the finishing touches to lift them to an imposing 185 in 20 overs.
The 31-year old smashed a couple of one-handed sixes in successive overs during his 41 off 17 balls. In the 17th over, he dispatched the ball over the fence off left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner. In the next over, the towering all-rounder hammered Raymond Reifer, but this time it was the long-on region, making use of his bottom hand.
Below is the clip of Kieron Pollard’s two sixes off one hand:

Trinbago Knight Riders prevailed over the Barbados Tridents in the 9th match at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba on Sunday. After losing Sunil Narine and Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro and Darren Bravo struck the fifties. Munro made 50 off 30 deliveries while Bravo remained unbeaten at 54. The partnership between Bravo and Pollard remained unbeaten at 98 to guide their side to 185.
The pair of Johnson Charles and Shai Hope built an opening stand of 68; however, the middle-order could not get going. Jason Holder tried his best with his unbeaten 19-ball 34 knock, but could not prevent a 21-run loss. For the Knight Riders, all six bowlers managed one wicket each except Dwayne Bravo.
