Mumbai Indians' swashbuckling all-rounder Kieron Pollard hit the nets and trained for the first time ahead of the team's lung-opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL starting in Chennai on Friday (April 9).
The 33-year-old West Indian, the most capped player for the five-time defending champions, completed his quarantine before starting training.
