West Indies and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard has been elected as the captain of Mumbai Indians for the upcoming Champions League T20 cricket tournament. Pollard was selected as the new captain as their regular captain Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the tournament because of injury.
Apart from Pollard Harbhajan Singh and Latish Malinga were also short listed to lead the team. Harbhajan Singh had led Mumbai during 2012 Champions League title.
Pollard is with Mumbai since 2010 but has not lead the team even in a single game but has lead Barbados Tridents to win the title of Caribbean Premier League this season.
