“Excited to work together again” – Hardik Pandya Shared A Heartfelt Post After Reuniting With Kieron Pollard

Former Mumbai Indians (MI) player, Kieron Pollard, has joined the team camp in Mumbai ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season.

Ahead of the IPL 2023 season, Pollard officially retired from the Indian Premier League and assumed the position of batting coach for the Mumbai Indians for that year.

Mumbai Indians’ newly appointed skipper Hardik Pandya delighted the fans by sharing an amazing throwback image featuring himself and legend Kieron Pollard, as the duo reunited ahead of the upcoming 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League.

For the unversed, Kieron Pollard and Hardik were teammates at Mumbai Indians until 2022, when the Indian all-rounder moved to Gujarat Titans.

However, Hardik Pandya is now all set to make a comeback for his home team – Mumbai Indians. On the other hand, Pollard announced his IPL retirement before IPL 2023 and transitioned into the role of the team’s batting coach.
