Pollard’s exploits were lauded by the entire cricket fraternity including Gibbs and Yuvraj who took to Twitter to congratulate the West Indies all-rounder on his incredible achievement. Fans on Twitter also began to laud Pollard’s exploits. Netizens on social media posted hilarious memes on this rare occurrence in cricket.

Kieron Pollard’s incredible roll helped West Indies to chase down a highly-dramatic 134-run target. West Indies began with a good start, with Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis putting 52 runs for the opening wicket in 3.1 overs before Dananjaya struck.

Pollard cleared the boundary six times in the next Dananjaya over to race to 38 off 10 before getting out LBW for 38. His amazing performance fetched West Indies the record of scoring the most runs in the Powerplay, which was 98, the most in a T20I.

“I felt I could hit six sixes after the third one. I did it in the Super 50 as well. I just backed myself. Once I had five sixes I knew I had the bowler on the back foot. He was going around the wicket and it was difficult for him. I just told myself: go for it,” Pollard said after the match.
