The first cricketer to play 600 T20 games is Kieron Pollard

It seemed exceedingly impossible that someone would play in 600 T20 matches, but former West Indies captain Kieron Pollard has. While representing London Spirit in The Hundred, Pollard became the first player to accumulate 600 T20 cricket appearances.

Pollard has been taking part in many T20 competitions all around the world since declaring his retirement from international cricket in April of this year. In the Monday encounter between the London Spirit and Manchester Originals, Pollard scored 34 runs off only 11 balls without being out, smashing four enormous sixes at a very high strike rate of 309.09.

London Spirit scored a tough total of 160 for the loss of six wickets thanks in large part to Pollard’s outstanding performance. The objective was unattainable, as Manchester Originals were defeated by 52 runs. London Spirit’s Jordan Thompson was named Player of the Match after taking four wickets in the contest.

The hard-hitting all-rounder Pollard plays for the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Pollard presently plays for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League, and he has also played for the Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League. Additionally, Pollard has competed in the CSA T20 Challenge, Bangladesh Premier League, and Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Pollard has played 101 games in international T20 cricket, totaling 1569 runs and 42 wickets. On February 20, 2022, he played his last T20 international against India at Eden Gardens. He has played 600 games in T20 cricket total, scoring 11,723 runs at an average of 31.34. In the format, he has reached a century and 56 half-centuries. In T20 cricket, he has taken 309 wickets.

In terms of T20 cricket matches played, Dwayne Bravo (543), Shoaib Malik (472), Chris Gayle (463), and Ravi Bopara (426) are the other players behind him.
