Kieron Pollard spill beans on probability of Sunil Narine’s inclusion in West Indies squad for T20 WC 2021

West Indies veteran Sunil Narine has performed outstandingly well in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner was at his best in the recently concluded Eliminator against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.

Narine dominated the proceedings and sent shockwaves to the RCB camp after he picked up four wickets, including prized scalps of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell. Not only this, the Caribbean star played a quickfire 15-ball 26 runs knock in the chase to inspire KKR to a 4-wicket victory.

After the magical all-round display, many fans expected West Indies to recall Narine in their T20 World Cup 2021 squad, which will be played in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. Now, Windies captain Kieron Pollard has shared his thoughts on whether Narine would be included in the T20 World Cup squad or not.

In a chat with ESPNcricinfo, Pollard confirmed that there wouldn’t be any change to the West Indies side ahead of the ICC’s deadline on Friday. The Trinidadian said they are focusing on the current 15-member squad

“If I add my two cents or my words on how his non-inclusion came about, then it could be spun – just like how he’s bowling on these Sharjah wickets – in all different directions. Let’s deal with the fifteen guys that we have here at this moment in time, which is more important, and see if we can rally around these guys and see if we can defend our title”, said Pollard.

Pollard said Narine is his ‘dear friend’ as the duo has grown up playing cricket. He termed the spinner as a ‘World Class’ cricketer.

“I have no comments on that. Enough has been said on that. I think persons have explained the reason of his non-inclusion at this point in time. For me personally, I know Sunil Narine as a friend first, before an international cricketer. We grew up playing cricket together. He is a world-class cricketer”, added Pollard.

BCCI launches fan-inspired Team India’s new jersey ahead of T20 World Cup 2021

On Wednesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to social media to reveal the new jersey of Team India ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021. The multi-team tournament will be played from October 17 to November 14 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. India will start their campaign with a much-awaited clash against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on October 24.

The new kit has been named the ‘Billion Cheers Jersey’ by BCCI. This kit will replace the current 1992 World Cup pattern jersey. The jersey comes in shades of Prussian blue and royal blue colours.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain Rohit Sharma, stylish batter KL Rahul, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and frontline pacer Jasprit Bumrah were seen flaunting the new kit in the picture shared by the Indian cricket board.

“Presenting the Billion Cheers Jersey! The patterns on the jersey are inspired by the billion cheers of the fans,” tweeted BCCI.

MPL Sports – the official kit sponsor of Indian cricket team – said it’s the first occasion when fans have been memorialised on a jersey as it carries their chants and cheers, which are transformed into soundwave patterns.

“This is the first time in the history of Indian cricket that fans have been memorialised on a jersey. It carries their chants and cheers from iconic past matches, transformed into unique soundwave patterns,” stated a release from MPL Sports as quoted by India TV.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly expressed his excitement, stating the jersey is a way to celebrate the love and support Indian players get around the globe.

“The Indian cricket team enjoys support not just in India but around the world, and there’s no better way to celebrate their excitement and energy than through this jersey,” said Ganguly.

“This will undoubtedly provide the team with the much-needed enthusiastic support in their quest to emerge as the T20 champions of the world. We are also pleased to see that MPL Sports continues to deliver merchandise that is widely affordable and accessible,” he added.
