The Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard story
Not many fans know the fact that it was Dwayne Bravo who convinced Mumbai Indians to buy Kieron Pollard in the auction in 2010. Back in 2010, Bravo used to represent the Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
“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 told 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?” said Bravo.
