‘Longest six of IPL 2021’: Kieron Pollard smashes 105-meter six against Sunrisers Hyderabad: Watch Video
On Saturday, Kieron Pollard smashed a six that was so long that it left the MA Chidambaram Stadium. In the 17th over of the match between MI vs SRH, which was bowled by debutant spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Pollard hit the first six of his inning. His powerful knock landed on the roof of Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. Pollard showed his big-hitting prowess by smashing over deep mid-wicket to hit the biggest six of the ongoing IPL edition. It was 105 meters long. In the end, it was Pollard’s knock that helped Mumbai Indians post a respective total on the board. He hit 17 off the last over bowled by pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Pollard is famous for his big-hitting knocks in cricket. The West Indian has been an integral part of the Mumbai Indians since he was bought in 2010. Since then, Pollard has continued to provide the impetus to the batting unit while bailing them out in crunch situations. Kieron Pollard and Virat Kohli are the only two players who have played only for a single team in IPL.
