Port-of-Spain: West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard is excited about the possibilities in the five upcoming One Day Internationals against India.
The powerful six-footer had a good work out on Sunday morning as Windies had a full three-hour training session at Queen’s Park Oval. The home side will be looking for a winning start when the series bowls off on Monday at the historic venue.
“I have been training well and batting well so I’m eagerly looking ahead to this series. My form is there and I’m hitting the ball well. It’s a matter of me trying to get off to a good start and try to get the team off to a winning start when things kick off.
“I’m looking to do well and make a positive impact for the West Indies. There is a lot of cricket to be played and, as a team, we are really looking forward to playing against the Indians,” Pollard said.
“We have a very good team. We have a lot of players who have done well at the international level and I’m sure they will be looking for more good performances at this level. We are fully aware of what is required and we will be looking to go out and do the job for the people of the West Indies,” he added.
Pollard has become world-famous for his power hitting. On Monday he will be playing in front of his countrymen in Trinidad and for him, that will make the occasion extra special.
