Pollard during the match vs GT

IPL 2022, GT vs MI: Kieron Pollard had another poor outing in the game vs Gujarat Titans as he scored just four off 14 deliveries before getting out to Rashid Khan. 

19(20) vs LSG, 10(14) vs RR, and 4(14) vs GT. These are his scores from the last three games, including from the one tonight. As soon as he got out, Pollard started to trend on Twitter, albiet for all the wrong reasons. 

While some fans wanted the match vs GT to be his last, others tweeted that he was finished. Here are few reactions. 

Along with Pollard, the fans were also talking about how Brevis should be the one to replace Pollard. 

As far as the match is concerned, GT won the toss, and opted to bowl. Batting first, Rohit took MI off to a flyer as he scored a quickfire 43 off 28 deliveries. 

Sharma's opening partner, Ishan Kishan, looked in good touch as the southpaw raced away to 45 off 29 deliveries. MI lost their way in the middle overs as Surya, Pollard, and Tilak couldn't contribute much. But, powered by Tim David's 44 of 21 deliveries, MI eventually finished with 177 on board.
