West Indies star all-rounder Kieron Pollard has expressed his excitement over the soon to commence Abu Dhabi T10 League. Pollard commended the concept of the whole 10-over tournament, saying it totally suits his game.
“The thrill and excitement of T10 are limitless. But it’s actually not too dissimilar to the kind of cricket I grew up playing. It’s not about to see ball hit ball. You need to be able to think on your feet, anticipate and execute plans without pausing too much. It suits me, to be honest, and my experience stands me in good stead when reading the opposition,” Pollard said.
“It’s (T10) a great concept and one that’s designed to create continuous excitement. You are never out of the game so those watching on the screen are glued to it every ball,” he added.
Kieron Pollard will be representing Deccan Gladiators alongside players with the likes of Sunil Narine, Colin Ingram, and Imran Tahir, speaking on which, the West Indies all-rounder said, “I’m most excited about playing with the group that we have assembled at Deccan Gladiators. I can’t wait to go out there with match-winners like Narine, Tahir, Shahzad, Ingram, the local UAE star Zahoor and others. We also have a few surprises up our sleeves for our opponents.”
The Abu Dhabi T10 tournament gets underway on January 28 at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi and will continue till February 6.
