Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has unfollowed the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Rohit Sharma on Twitter ahead of the India-West Indies series.
Pollard and Rohit, whose friendship goes a long way back right from the time they joined MI, have been really close friends. But recently, Pollard unfriended Rohit Sharma on Twitter and fans have a lot of questions.
The Mumbai-based franchise have been crowned as the IPL champions in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019 under Rohit’s leadership and have been outperforming their opponents under pressure for the past few seasons.
Going into the 2020 season of the IPL, MI on November 15 released a few players ahead of the mega auction in December.
Released: Evin Lewis, Adam Milne, Jason Behrendorff, Beuran Hendricks, Ben Cutting, Yuvraj Singh, Barinder Sran, Rasikh Salam, Pankaj Jaswal, Alzarri Joseph.
Traded: Trent Boult from Delhi Capitals, Dhawal Kulkarni from Rajasthan Royals, Sherfane Rutherford from Delhi Capitals, Siddhesh Lad to Kolkata Knight Riders, Mayank Markande to Delhi Capitals/Rajasthan Royals.
Thank you for a record-breaking 2019 🏆🙏
