Kieron Pollard has finally done it. The Mumbai Indians star has equalled the record set by Yuvraj Singh and Herschelle Gibbs. The West Indian all-rounder has managed to hit six sixes in an over. Though it took a while, it did finally happen. The game was the first T20 international between the West Indies and Sri Lanka.

The fans may never again possibly see such a thing happen any time soon. It was a brutal hammering that Kieron Pollard gave to the opposition bowler.

Well, it just seems to be a competition between the hitters. Kieron Pollard is doing it already and so are some of his rival batsmen ahead of the IPL tournament. The IPL 2020 may have not been the best for this star, yet the Mumbai Indians retained their title.
With that being said, Kieron Pollard is already looking set to change that. If he can work on his form now and retain it, things could get really interesting. It is not going to be easy retaining the title for the third year in a row. However, if any team can do it, it is surely Rohit Sharma and co.
IPL 2021 has its significance for various reasons already. Due to that, all teams will be keen on winning the title. The Mumbai Indians will want to give it their all to hold on to it for another year. That is before new potential teams are added to the mix.
Kieron Pollard could hold the key to doing that. If he can perform well for them, there is no stopping the team from Mumbai. However, it all depends on his temperament while batting and his form as well. Let’s wait and watch!!
