The Abu Dhabi T10 League is happening right now. Popular former international cricketers such as Kieron Pollard, Suresh Raina and Dwayne Bravo are part of the league. Some fine current players such as Nicholas Pooran are also playing in the competition. In the first game held on Thursday, a stunning performance by Kieron Pollard helped his team win the match. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Kieron Pollard smashes Dwayne Bravo for 20 runs in the final over to win the game for New York Strikers.
Pollard vs Bravo has always been an entertaining watch
New York Strikers is a newly introduced team in the T10 League. Kieron Pollard is the captain of the team. They have been doing well in the competition and against Delhi Bulls, they were yet again brilliant. The Bulls scored 112 in 10 overs and at one point, Pollard’s team needed 20 runs to chase in the final over. It was the skipper of the Bulls Dwayne Bravo who was bowling the last over. Pollard struck two sixes and two boundaries to take his team home.
The battle between the T20 veterans has always been a fine one to watch. They have clashed against each other multiple times in the IPL and also, in the CPL. Apart from the battle of skills, the duo also ensures that the fans are entertained whenever they take on each other. Hence, fans always like the duo involved on the field.
