Mumbai Indians Kieron Pollard has established his reputation as one of the hardest hitters of the cricket ball in world cricket at present. However, it is not just his hitting abilities but also his fielding which make him an incredible asset for any team that he plays for. The West Indian has been known to set his own standards on the field, especially while fielding near the boundary. Pollard however had a moment to forget on the field in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday when he hilariously toppled over the fence while trying to stop a boundary.
It all happened in the 4th over of the Sunrisers innings when Saha played a pull shot off Jasprit Bumrah towards deep mid-wicket. Pollard chased the ball down till the very end and attempted to kick it back to one of his teammates instead of sliding to use his hands. The end result wasn’t too pretty as it was the ball which won the race eventually while he ended up crashing into the advertising hoarding. Pollard, realising he was travelling too fast to stop in time, acrobatically somersaulted over the fence and onto the ground. It was eventually just his pride that got hurt as he managed to escape unhurt after landing just centimetres away from an outdoor broadcast station.
