“Thank You Legend” – Twitter reacts to Kieron Pollard retiring from IPL

Former West Indian captain and IPL great Kieron Pollard has announced his IPL retirement. On Tuesday, he took to Twitter and made this announcement. The 13-year-old bond between him and the franchise ended. Pollard joined Mumbai Indians in 2010 and has been part of the team since then. He also captained MI in six games, winning four of them. However, last season didn’t go as well as he would have liked, which might be the reason the franchise decided to release him ahead of the next auction.

As a result, the veteran himself decided to retire from IPL cricket. Pollard also revealed that he couldn’t see himself playing for any other team, which is why he is making this decision. He tweeted, “I understand that this incredible franchise which has achieved so much needs to transition and if I’m no longer to play for MI then I cannot see myself playing against MI either, ‘Once an MI always an MI’.”
