Alfonso Thomas Wishes on a Pollard
What he said:
“At that point of the game, we normally have a guy called Pollard coming in for us, but unfortunately he was playing for the other team.”
Somerset captain Alfonso Thomas harps on his wishbone—in vain—pointing out the unavailability of key players like Kieron Pollard when they are also part of IPL teams. Somerset succumbed to Mumbai Indians in the semis of the Champions League T20. Pollard turned out for the IPL side.
What he really meant:
“An arm and a leg (or a million or two) for Kieron Pollard in my squad.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Game-changers like Pollard are a dime-a-dozen.”
