While it is easier to get carried away in the heat of the moment, especially in the pressure of a cricket match, Kieron Pollard realised the intensity of a match situation beautifully during Mumbai Indians’ clash against Punjab Kings in IPL 2022.
As the West Indian was run out in the 1st ball of the 17th over, trying to come back for a second on a misfield, Pollard realised that his partner Suryakumar Yadav was not feeling too good about it as they were involved in a mix-up.
Realising that SKY needed to continue and try to finish the match for Mumbai, Pollard went and consoled Suryakumar before taking the walk back to the dugout.
The video of Pollard’s gesture has surfaced on the internet:
