West Indies T20I skipper Kieron Pollard is just 10 runs away from achieving a batting milestone in the shortest format of the game.
As India and West Indies gear up to prepare for their second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, Pollard is just 10 runs away from smashing 1000 runs in T20I.
By achieving this feat, he will become only the fourth Windies batsman to do so.
Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, and Dwayne Bravo are the other three players to have achieved the feat.
Gayle has 1627 runs to his name, followed by Marlon Samuels with 1611, and Dwayne Bravo has 1142 runs in his bag.
Rohit Sharma is currently the leading run-scorer in T20I followed by Virat Kohli in second.
Rohit has 2547 runs to his name while Virat has 2544 runs in his bag.
In the first T20I against India, Pollard played a gutsy cameo, enabling West Indies to cross the 200-run mark.
The Windies, however, lost the game by six wickets.
“We would take a score of 208 ten times out of ten. It was a great game of cricket. I’m happy with the way our young batsmen did the job tonight… Lots of positives … we will look to bounce back in second match,” Kieron Pollard had said after the game.
For India, skipper Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten knock of 94 while KL Rahul smashed 62 runs.
India leads the three-match series by 1-0.
The second T20I will be played in Thiruvananthapuram later today.
