West Indian crowd-puller and T20 specialist Kieron Pollard, who blazed his way to 119 inclusive of 10 monstrous sixers, couldn't stop India from winning the game to seal the series 4-1. He was obviously happy about scoring his maiden ODI century but harped on being more consistent.
'Thank God I got my maiden hundred. I wanted the team to win.'
'The first couple of games were really close. Hopefully we'll take a couple of months off from international cricket and reflect and come back strong for Australia,' Pollard said on his team's overall performance in the ODI series.
About his knock, he said it was a significant hundred. 'I was looking for a different approach. I had a couple of starts in the earlier matches,' he observed.
He was thankful to God for the life he got just a run ahead of his 100. 'One of the best fielders in India dropped me on 99 tonight,' he added.
Pollard further said he has to be positive and learn from this experience to do well for west Indies cricket and for himself.
Asked if the team had failed to close matches he said, 'We had a chance in the first couple of games. It’s just the mental aspect or killer instinct. Past West Indian sides had it, then the Aussies had it and now India is doing really well.'
