West Indian Kieron Pollard is facing social media roasting for doing away with sportsmanship when he bowled a no-ball to deny a young opposition batsman what could have been his splendid century.
While playing in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Evin Lewis was batting on 97 off just 32 deliveries as his team required just one run to win the match against Pollard’s Barbados Tridents. Bollard, the skipper of his team, bowled a no ball breaking hearts of both Lewis and thousands of cricket fans present in the stadium.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots needed 129 to win and they achieved the target without losing a wicket with Lewis scoring 97.
You can watch the video below. But, meanwhile do check out the comments on Twitter.
So Kieron Pollard bowls a no-ball to deny Evin Lewis a hundred in CPL. S Randiv was suspended for a match when he did that to Sehwag in 2010
