Former West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has written his name in the history books by becoming the first cricketer to play 600 T20 matches in the history of the game (male or female). Pollard, who retired from international cricket in April this year, will ply his trade in T20 leagues around the world as he continues to break records.
Pollard made his debut for the West Indies in 2007 at ODI and went on to become one of cricket’s toughest ball hitters. Having represented West Indies in 101 T20I and Mumbai Indians in 189 Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, he was probably the first T20 globetrotter in the truest sense, perhaps alongside fellow countryman Dwayne Kudos to appearing in leagues around the world.
As he set foot in the new league, La Cent (yes, that counts in T20), it only took one game to have an impact. Playing for Eoin Morgan-led London Spirit (his 19th team in the format), Pollard played an 11-ball 34* past a packed Lord’s Cricket Ground to help his team to a solid 160, which was ultimately too much. for the Manchester Originals.

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.
