VideosWATCH: Kieron Pollard, Shaheen Afridi heated exchange after WI star smashes pacer for 3 sixes 

Srinagar: Former West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard was in brilliant touch against Lahor Qalandars on Wednesday smashing Pakistan star pacer Shaheen Afridi all over the park in the first qualifier of PSL 2023.

Pollard scored 57 off 34 balls that included one four and six sixes. Pollard helped Multan Sultans put up a score of 160/5 in Lahore and the home side ended up losing the game by 84 runs.

Three of Pollard’s sixes came in the 19th over bowled by Afridi and the Lahore skipper was not too happy about that. 

Pollard and Afridi could be seen exchanging a few heated words after the the last ball of the over disappeared over deep square leg.

Pollard missed a ramp shot off the first ball of the over but then walloped the second ball down the ground for the first six. He then clubbed the third ball over long-on to bring up his half-century. Pollard then skied the third attempted big hit but Husain Talat ended up dropping what was one of the easier catching chance one would hope to find in top flight cricket. Pollard ran a single after which Tim David got him back on strike for the last ball, which also went for six.

Afridi ended up conceding 20 runs in that over, the most he has ever conceded in an over in his PSL career. Pollard also hit a six each off Rashid Khan and Haris Rauf and had also hit Afridi for a six off the first ball of the 17th over when the latter had returned for his final spell.

The former West Indies captain finally fell in the last over to Rauf. In response, Lahore were all out for a paltry 76 runs in 14.3 overs
