Kieron Pollard has announced his retirement from international cricket. Here's a look at some of his numbers.

224 - International matches Pollard played in his career over 15 years. That's the second-highest in men's international cricket without a Test cap. David Miller remains ahead of Pollard, with 238 matches played across ODIs and T20Is.

101 - Number of T20Is played by Pollard, making him the most-capped men's cricketer for West Indies in the format. He is also the only player to feature in 100-plus matches in men's T20Is without a Test cap.

2 - Pollard is one of two players to six sixes in an over in T20Is. He struck six sixes in Akila Dananjaya's third over during the first T20I of the three-match series in 2021. Yuvraj Singh was the first to record the feat, having hit six sixes off Stuart Broad during the 2007 World T20.

1.2 - Sixes hit per innings by Pollard in ODI cricket, the best sixes-per-innings ratio in the format for any player (minimum of 100 sixes). Pollard, on average, hits a six every 21.23 balls in ODIs, the second-best ratio of any batter after Shahid Afridi (19.64 balls).

135 - Sixes hit by Pollard in ODI cricket, the second-highest for West Indies in the format. Only Chris Gayle is ahead of Pollard with 330 sixes in his 298-match ODI career for West Indies.

3 - Pollard is one of three players with more sixes than the number of fours they hit in T20I cricket (players with 50-plus sixes). In his 101-match career, Pollard struck 99 sixes, five more than the 94 fours he hit. Andre Russell hit 62 sixes but only 42 fours, while Evin Lewis hit 110 sixes against 106 fours in the format.

99 - Sixes for Pollard in T20Is, the third-highest by any player for West Indies in the format, as only Gayle and Lewis are ahead with 124 and 110, respectively. Only seven batters have hit more sixes than Pollard in men's T20Is.
