Dwayne Bravo revealed the position he performed in Mumbai Indians (MI) signing Kieron Pollard in 2010. Bravo performed for MI between 2008 and 2010 and the group was trying to find a substitute after the Trinidadian left for Chennai Super Kings.
“When Mumbai Indians needed a replacement for me, I gave them Kieron Pollard`s name. When they tried contacting him, he was playing for a club, so I recommended Dwayne Smith and he became my replacement,” Bravo informed Cricbuzz.
“The following year, when it was the Champions League, I called Rahul (Sanghvi) and said, `Pollard, he`s here. Come and sign him now before the tournament starts.` Rahul and Robin Singh left Mumbai and came to Hyderabad, I`ll never forget they came with a contract which at that time was 200,000 USD. I called Pollard, who came downstairs and met them both in the lobby. He saw the contract. Now for someone coming from Trinidad, as a 19-year-old, that was wow. He said, `Dwayne are you serious?” stated Bravo.
Pollard has turned out to be some of the essential signings in MI`s historical past, enjoying an integral position within the group`s 5 Indian Premier League (IPL) victories. He has scored 3,191 runs for MI at a strike charge of 150.87 and brought 63 wickets as properly.
