Kieron Pollard is a cricketer, you need to be cautious with and not mess around. Prasidh Krishna bowled the last delivery of the 15th over, where Pollard dodged the ball towards the bowler and he failed to grab it and ran towards Pollard with his hand up for no reason at all. Pollard was not impressed with what the pacer did, and had a exchange of words with him, when both got in face to face with each other.
The Kolkata Knight Riders were quite clinical with their efforts in their league match against Mumbai Indians and won the game by 7 wickets. In the first half of the game, they bowled well to contain the opposition to a score of 155, with Ferguson and Krishna picking 2 wickets each.
In the batting department, youngster Venkatesh Iyer continued his fine form and scored 53 off 30 balls, while Rahul Tripathi was also brilliant with 74* off 42 balls and helped the team to chase down the total in 15 overs and entering the top 4 in the IPL 2021 points table.
