He was not the most expensive Indian Premier League purchase this year for nothing... For $750,000 you can expect some lusty blows, useful medium-pacers and cheetah-like athleticism in the field. He still needs to prove himself on the grandest stage though, and his highest T20 score remains just the 38 posted against New Zealand back in 2008. However his performances for Trinidad & Tobago in last year's Champions League and then for the Mumbai Indians, who lost in final of the IPL, this year suggest Pollard could be about to take Twenty20 cricket by storm.
