Lewis laughed off the no-ball incident – Pollard

Lewis laughed off the no-ball incident - Pollard

“At the end of the day, (people may claim) Kieron Pollard is jealous of Evin Lewis and things like that. That’s not in my nature. I have been the first one to congratulate somebody. I have been the first one to send him a message and always be there no matter what. And this is not going to stop me from continuing to do that.

“We had a conversation. I wouldn’t share the exchange of the conversation but we had a couple of Whatsapp messages and it’s all cordial. No, I didn’t apologise to him. To me, there is nothing to apologise for. We just laughed it off.”

Pollard claimed that his conscience was clear since he only had an intention to bowl the best possible delivery. “It wasn’t intentional, nothing was intentional at any point in time,” the 30-year-old reiterated. “I acknowledge that we have lost the game but I am not going to just go there and bowl a ball just for him to hit it for six or four, for him to score hundred in that sense. That’s not my nature, and I don’t think any sportsman will just do something to that effect.

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has claimed that Evin Lewis laughed off the no-ball incident that made headlines earlier this week during a Caribbean Premier League match. Pollard was accused of bowling a no-ball on purpose when Lewis was batting on 97 off 31 balls.
