For West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who was bought by Indian Premier League team Mumbai Indians for a whopping USD 750,000 in Tuesday’s auction, chance to share the dressing room with Sachin Tendulkar came as an additional bonanza.

“It is an honour to play with Sachin Tendulkar. I have grown up as a kid by watching him on television,” Pollard said after he was sold to the Mumbai team.

“It’s brilliant for me to get the chance to play in the IPL. It will be an exposure and also an opportunity to show what player Pollard can do,” the 22-year-old cricketer told a television channel.

Speaking on his attacking game, Pollard said, “I have full confidence in myself. You are supposed to have no doubt about yourself while playing.”
