The Hundred 2022: No boundary is long enough for Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, says Eoin Morgan

Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell are two of the biggest names in cricket today. Not only are they powerful hitters, but they also have the ability to clear the biggest boundaries in the world. On Monday, August 8, Pollard became the first cricketer to play 600 T20 matches during London Spirit’s Hundred 2022 match against Manchester Originals at the iconic Lord’s.

Pollard stayed unbeaten on 34 off 11 balls with the help of one four and four sixes. On the back of his knock, the Spirit put up a score of 160 for six, after which they bowled the Originals out for 108 to win the match by 52 runs.

Former England captain Eoin Morgan heaps praise on both Pollard and Russell

Former England skipper Eoin Morgan heaped praise on both Pollard and Russell. Saying that they are two of the most exciting cricketers to watch. “Both Kieron and Andre are destructive batsmen who can change the course of a game in an instant,” Morgan said. “It’s always special when you see them taking on the best bowlers in the world and coming out on top.”

Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell are two of the strongest batters in the Caribbean. And taking the pace off the ball while bowling to them could backfire, according to England captain Eoin Morgan. He also lauded Pollard for being a leader in the Spirit camp.

“When everyone is struggling to hit over the boundary on the bigger side of the ground – the likes of Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell are the guys you pay the big bucks for because no long boundary is long enough for them, particularly when you’re taking pace off the ball, they just seem to muscle it. Kieron just continues to get better and better, but his value as a leader within the group is brilliant as well,” Morgan was quoted as saying to Sky Sports.

The England captain continued: “He [Pollard] is one of those players that can change an game on its head on his day, whether that’s with bat or ball. He’s really stepped up this year and been a real leader within our team”.Russell, on the other hand, Morgan described as a “handful” and somebody who is “very dangerous”.
