T20 Unique Record: Kieron Pollard made a world record in the match being played against Mumbai Indians (MI) and Punjab Kings (PBKS). By taking the wickets of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul of Punjab Kings on Tuesday night, Pollard has become the first cricketer in the world in T20 cricket to have more than 10 thousand runs and 300 runs in T20 cricket. Wickets are recorded. It is clear from this record of Pollard that he is the best all-rounder in T20 cricket. Till now he has won many matches for West Indies and Mumbai Indians on his own.
Pollard has achieved this position in his 565th match in T20 cricket. He has more than 11 thousand runs to his name in the fastest and shortest format of cricket. Pollard took this unique record after dismissing Chris Gayle and later KL Rahul against Punjab Kings in the important match of IPL. Till now no cricketer in the world is even near this record.
