West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard is loving his visit to Pakistan after he travelled to the country with the Peshawar Zalmi for the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Pollard has represented the Zalmi in nine games and scored 184 runs, which includes two half-centuries, at an average of 30.66 and a strike-rate of 173.58. He has also taken three wickets at an average of 44, while maintaining an economy rate of 6.71.
The West Indies toured Pakistan in April last year, but Pollard was not part of the squad. However, he is glad that he got the opportunity to visit the country with the Zalmi and play cricket in front of the die-hard fans there.
“I have heard great things about Pakistan and I am definitely loving my visit since I have landed,” Pollard told the PSL website. “The (Zalmi) camp has been super friendly with the management being really supportive. The boys have gelled in almost no time and it was great to have (Darren) Sammy and (Andre) Fletcher in the side as well.”
Pollard also admitted that the PSL has become one of the best Twenty20 leagues in the world due to its competitiveness.
“The PSL is always a great experience for me and I definitely rate it as one of the top leagues in the world in terms of competitiveness,” he said. “It has grown into a great asset and most of the players want to become part of this league.”
