Kieron Pollard has a very witty sense of humor and that is no secret.
During an IPL 2015 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI), one of the on-field umpires was not happy with Pollard trying to get under Chris Gayle’s skin. The 27 year old Trinidadian had quite a few things to say to his compatriot as Bangalore began their chase of a mammoth 210 run target versus Mumbai Indians.
Pollard was asked to maintain proper distance and control the chatter.
Pollard’s response was to promptly put some tape on his mouth. He literally taped up his mouth to show that he would do absolutely no talking, sledging or otherwise. When he had to talk to a teammate, he peeled off an edge of the tape to talk and put the tape back on.
