"<yoastmark

Kieron Pollard aka ‘Polly’ has been a regular Mumbai Indians member for a long time now. He has been with the side through thick and thin. Meanwhile, Pollard is a reliable member in playing XI as well, He has been backed by the team whenever he faced a rough patch in his IPL career. However, the West Indies veteran won’t be available for selection for the first game in IPL 2021 against CSK.

As per Covid-19 norms 2 days quarantine is mandatory for players returning from Caribbean Premier League (CPL). So if Kieron Pollard reaches UAE tomorrow his mandatory quarantine will be over on 18. Meanwhile, due to lack of training, he might miss the high-profile fixture against Chennai Super Kings.

His absence will definitely hurt the Mumbai Indians franchise. As he had an amazing outing in the first phase of IPL. Notably, Pollard managed to score 168 runs in 7 games at an average of 56 and strike rate of 171.42.
