CricketGraphs: Kieron Pollard of West Indies, Defending Hard

It’s imperative — for any American hoping to telegraph his sophistication — it’s imperative to have at least a cursory knowledge of what is known universally as the Sport of Kings Who Aren’t That Interested in Thoroughbred Racing.

In so acquainting ourselves with the sport, we find this spectacular defensive effort courtesy 24-year-old cricketer Kieron Pollard from Tuesday’s international match between Pollard’s West Indian team and Australia.

Pollard also appears to be rather an impressive batter, as well, as this other video from the internet probably demonstrates:

Credit to Hardball Talk’s Craig Calcaterra (and Dan Lee, it seems) for supplying video of the Pollard catch.
