Following the defeat of Mumbai Indians against SunRisers Hyderabad in the final Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 league game, Vice Captain Kieron Pollard took to social media to share a scathing message, confusing fans as to who it was targeted. “I’d rather have an enemy who admits they hate me, instead of a friend who secretly belittles me,” Pollard read on Instagram. The all-rounder also shared the message on Twitter. Fans on both social media platforms were surprised by the post and tried to deliberate on who Pollard was looking for.
While some suggested that Pollard was talking about SRH’s Jason Holder, who he took over as the West Indies captain in the limited-overs formats, others believed Pollard was referring to Rohit Sharma, who returned to the playing XI after missing four games due to a hamstring injury.
“Enough evidence from the past to prove he’s talking about Rohit Sir,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Don’t play playoffs Polly. MI is nothing without you … Then only Rohit will understand …” wrote another.
“Is that Jason holder or Rohit,” asked another user.
“Is that Jason keeper?” asked a fan.
“I think it has more to do with container,” wrote one user.
Pollard took the lead in the absence of Rohit Sharma due to an injury and helped the team take first place in the rankings. Rohit had picked up the injury during the match against Kings XI Punjab, going to a second Super Over.
Mumbai Indians will now face Delhi Capitals in the first qualifier on Thursday.
