IPL 2022: Ahead of MI vs CSK, Sanjay Manjrekar questions Kieron Pollard’s place in Mumbai Indians XI- check out
MI vs CSK LIVE – Why Manjrekar is Questioning Kieron Pollard’s place in MI XI? The MI allrounder has failed to live up to expectations. He has managed just 82 runs at 16.40 this season.
Even while bowling Pollard has been a huge dampener for Mumbai. He has taken just single wicket with 10 runs per over economy rate.
“I don’t know whether Mumbai Indians ever think of Pollard being dispensable. But I believe that Pollard has to bowl at least three overs if not four because the team needs a bowler desperately. I think under pressure he is better than a lot of bowlers in this side. So, if he is not bowling and continuing only to bat finally, I think they got to look at the scores and the contributions of Pollard,” Manjrekar told ESPNCricinfo.
- Kieron Pollard has not bowled in 4/6 matches for Mumbai Indians amid a continued poor show from Jasprit Bumrah & Co
- The allrounder also failed to deliver with the bat with just 82 runs across 6 innings at an average of 16. As a result, the franchise is completely reliant on SuryaKumar Yadav in the middle order.
- Pollard’s backing means sixer specialist Tim David has to sit on the bench despite MI going big for him at the mega auction.
- Luckily, Pollard has a decent record against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), managing 569 runs @37.93. Can he finally turn the tables for bottom-placed MI in a do-or-die match? Follow us for MI vs CSK live updates

Meanwhile, ex-teammate Carlos Braithwaite was also vocal against Pollard’s string of low scores of MI this season.
“For the first time in a couple of seasons, I will probably say yes. But Pollard brings so much to Mumbai Indians. He is a stalwart to the franchise and he will get a long rope as usual. But he needs to start performing very soon because the team is not winning,” he added.
