West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard has suffered a shoulder injury and will be out of action for a period of at least three weeks. Pollard sustained the injury during Trinidad & Tobago's Regional Super50 game against Leeward Islands. He missed the semi-final against Guyana, which T&T won, and will not play a part in the final either.

Pollard was playing with a fractured wrist as well and said he would use the lay off to heal both injuries. He is expected to be fit for the limited-overs leg of West Indies' tour of India, which begins on November 29, after the three Tests.

"Pollard has returned home since Sunday and it is a big blow for us because he came in and immediately made a big, big impact," T&T manager Omar Khan told the Trinidad Express. "He added a lot of motivation and support...the team was energised with him around and we will miss that."

Pollard had joined T&T's Regional Super50 campaign after the ODI series in Bangladesh, where he scored 41 runs in two innings and took no wickets. Against Leeward Islands, he scored a quick 34, helping T&T chase down the target of 96 in 14.3 overs to secure four 'super bonus points'. He was replaced by West Indies Under-19 opener, Evin Lewis, in the T&T squad.

Pollard has done nothing for West Indies really, and until he does, he will be seen as merely a freelancing swiper going from place to place. I wish people would cease calling him West Indies alrounder. He's not. Period

WI allrounder? He is a slugger from Trinidad. He hardly ever plays for the WI as he says he needs to feather his nest. First he needs to learn to bat.

Who cares? Pollard adds know value to cricket.
