EXCLUSIVE: Kieron Pollard officially announces his retirement from international cricket

His post read as “After careful deliberation I’ve today decided to retire from international cricket, As is the case of many young persons it was a dream of mine to represent the West Indies team from the time I was a boy of 10 years and I’m proud to have represented West Indies cricket for over 15 years in both the T20 and ODI forms of the game. I can still vividly remember making my international debut in 2007 under the leadership of my childhood hero, Brian Lara. Wearing those maroon colours and playing alongside such greats has been a privilege that I never took lightly, soul in every facet of the game – whether bowling, batting or fielding.”

Pollard in his career played 123 ODIs and 101 T201s for West Indies. He made his ODI debut the next year opposite Australia in Bridgetown. He had never played a Test for West Indies and was a white-ball specialist for West Indies for more than 10 years. He got out of the ODI team in December 2014 before the South Africa series.


In 2016, he made a comeback in International cricket and captained the team in ODIs and T20Is in 2019. He led the series wins against Afghanistan (ODIs) in India, against Ireland at home, against Sri Lanka both home and away in T20Is, and against England at home earlier this year in T20Is. He led a total of 61 matches of West Indies in two formats in which they won 25 and lost 31 and 5 were without a result. He also played the match from the West Indies side that win the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

Right now, he’s a part of the Mumbai Indians squad in IPL. Fans are definitely going to miss him in the next matches of West Indies.
