- Kieron Pollard was asked about Kohli’s ‘animated’ move against Williams pacer
Tearing through the pages of Kesrick Williams’ notebook during India’s 1st T20I series against West Indies in Hyderabad, former India skipper Virat Kohli stamped his authority by playing an absolute blinder against the Kieron Pollard-led side in 2019 The batting maestro lived up to his ‘Chasemaster’ tag as he propelled the Indian side to a famous victory over the two-time world champions at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Known for wearing his heart on his sleeves, Kohli opted to take a leaf out of the pacer Williams’ notebook in the 16th. Williams had brought out his trademark when he got the better of the Indian skipper during the Indian tour of the Caribbean. Returning the favor by bamboozling the Windies’ speed dealer with a long-outrageous six, Kohli ticked Williams’ name for good.
Asked about the heated incident at the post-match press conference, West Indies captain Pollard called Kohli a “lively character”. Admitting that Kohli’s theatrics are an integral part of the game, Pollard agreed with the former India skipper’s gesture towards his then team-mate.
“He’s an animated character, a great drummer and he continues to show the world that he’s a world class drummer. His acting or whatever, it’s just part of the game. Sometimes you have to be like that to pump themselves up to score points and so I’m okay with that,” Pollard said.
Speaking of the match, Pollard & Co. had managed to set a mammoth goal for India in the 2019 series opener between the former world champions. Evin Lewis (40), Shimron Hetmyer (56) and skipper Pollard (37) propelled West Indies to 207/5 in the 20 over contest. Continuing the mammoth total in Hyderabad, India parted ways with veteran flyhalf Rohit Sharma in the 4th.
Joining forces with flyhalf KL Rahul (62), batting icon Kohli demolished the powerful bowling offense in the high-scoring encounter. Kohli played a majestic 94 from 50 balls as India reached the target of 205 runs in just 18.4 overs. The 33-year-old was named Player of the Game for his batting masterclass. Kohli’s sublime 94-point shot is still his highest score in the shortest format.
