In 600 matches, Pollard has 11,723 runs to his name with 309 wickets. Behind the Trinidadian, Bravo is second on the list having played 543 games in the shortest format.
Speaking about the achievement, Pollard said he never planned to play these many games for so long, but he had fun and hopes to continue for as long as he can.
“That’s a feat in itself, 600 games in any format. I never intended to play that many games or play that format in that time, but it’s something that happened and I’ve enjoyed it so far. Let’s see what happens as I go along. I’ll keep trying to work hard and enjoy playing cricket with a smile on my face. .As long as the body holds up, I’ll see how long I can hold out.” Pollard was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

Pollard may not have had a great season in the IPL for Mumbai, however, he is still considered one of the best foreign players in the league, having also entered the Big Bash League 12 draft. and will look to return to the cash-rich league, hopefully for the same franchise with renewed energy next year.
