The 34-year-old Pollard, who made his ODI debut in 2007, played his last series against India, a country that has turned into his second home because of his long relationship with Mumbai Indians.
"After cautious consultation, I've today chosen to resign from global cricket," Pollard composed on Instagram. "As a phenomenon of diverse young people, it was a dream of mine to address a group of people from the West Indies when I was 10 years old.
"I can regardless unmistakably review making my worldwide presentation in 2007 sabotage. It is a privilege for me to wear those maroon colors and play with such great people, The ones I never took lightly, who gave my childhood hero, Brian Laraart, and soul to every aspect of the game - whether bowling, batting, or fielding."
While he is a fearful T20 cricketer, one of the best in the world, his numbers for the West Indies are above 26, with only 2706 runs and 1569 runs in 123 ODIs with 101 T20Is. 55 wickets. Is. Over 25 in shade. He also took 44 wickets.

However, he dropped from their ODI squad in December 2014 ahead of a series in South Africa. His ax - along with Darren Sammy and Dwayne Bravo - came soon after West Indies pulled out of India's tour, with one ODI, one T20I, and three Tests remaining, following a dispute between Cricket West Indies and the players' union. on payment structures.
As he heads out on his 35th birthday, Pollard knows he'll need to maximize his earnings by playing leagues around the world, and in a post-Covid world, it's a lot to expect a family man from Bio-Bubble. Something is there. This is difficult. For another, the added burden of international cricket has made the task doubly difficult.
