Kieron Pollard’s injury has ruled him out of the upcoming Big Bash as the West Indies International might have to be sidelined over months.

Big Bash is coming very soon and its starting as soon as the next month and Adelaide Strikers already lost a key man who could be a game changer for them.

Kieron Pollard on big bash

Pollard was playing in Ram Slam T20 Challenge and got injured during fielding which turn out to be fatal for him. Although even after the injury he came out to bat later and got the match winning run but still, his injury looks bad enough to force him on the sideline for more than a month.

It was a big loss for his team the Cape Cobras as he is been really in tune with both and ball this season and one of the main reason Cobras made it this far.

However, the biggest loss will be for the Adelaide as they have lost Pollard and Big Bash is knocking on the door. Its hard to find a replacement for a player like Pollard who can change the flow of the match with both ball and the bat.

According to South Australia cricket Association high performance manager it will be a very big loss. He said that their first priority is to help Pollard recover fast and help him get back in form so he can contribute for the team but even that may take some time. He also added that, Pollard is quite unique who can turn everything around in all 3 aspects of cricket and is a very powerful all-rounder. Replacing him at this stage will not only be difficult but also may be impossible. Although he assured that they have more than 4 weeks at hand and if everything goes right then they should be able to find a replacement.

However, we can not deny that loosening Pollard will be big blow for both Cobras and Strikers.
