Kieron Pollard picks Rohit Sharma as his favourite batter to watch out

In a recent video on the BBL’s social media handle, Kieron Pollard was asked to pick a batter who he loves enjoying from the non-striker end. Pollard took the name of Rohit Sharma and said that Rohit’s batting looks like poetry to him. He insists that Rohit makes the game look easy.

“Overall, I think I like to see Rohit Sharma bat. Every time I’m on the non-striker’s end and I am watching him in motion. It looks like poetry to me,” Kieron Pollard said.

“How slow it seems to him as opposed to when I’m on strike. So I love to see him bat from the other hand because I love to see how he goes about things.”

Apart from Rohit Sharma, Pollard also took the names of Hardik Pandya and Glenn Maxwell. Pollard said that he likes the different enthusiasm brought by Hardik. He said that he loves watching Maxwell reverse sweeping from the other end.

“Hardik Pandya, his different enthusiasm in terms of how he hits. I love to see that. Even though I love to see Glenn Maxwell reverse sweeping fast bowlers, medium pacers, and spinners because I know I can’t do that so I can sit back and watch him,” Pollard added.
