In 600 matches, Pollard has 11723 runs to his name along with 309 wickets. Behind the Trinidadian, Bravo is second on the list having played 543 games in the shortest format.
Speaking on the achievement, Pollard said that he never set out to play these many games for this long but he has enjoyed himself and will hope to continue as long as he can.
“It’s an achievement in itself, 600 games in any format. I’ve never set out to play this many games or to play this format for this period of time, but it’s something that came along and I’ve enjoyed it so far. Let’s see what happens as I go forward. I’ll continue to try and work hard and enjoy playing cricket with a smile on my face. As long as the body holds up, I’m going to see how long I can go,” Pollard was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

Pollard may not have had a great season in the IPL for Mumbai, however, he is still regarded as one of the best overseas players in the league, having registered for the Big Bash League 12 draft as well and will be looking to return to the cash-rich league, hopefully for the same franchise with renewed energy next year.
