Mumbai Indians’ Kieron Pollard celebrated his side’s win over KXIP in grand fashion. The stand in skipper scored a blistering 83 off 31 balls that included 3 fours and 10 sixes.
The Trinidad batsman was joined by his son, Kaiden after he received the Man of the Match award for his captain’s knock.
In a video posted by the official IPL twitter handle, the father-son duo is seen having an interesting Q&A session.
