Mumbai Indians' big-hitter Kieron Pollard announced his return to form with a characteristic, explosive knock of 78 off 48 balls that almost took his side to victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai on Wednesday. Although it came in a losing cause, the fact that Pollard's willow has started to do some talking is a welcome change in the Mumbai dugout that is currently low on confidence and self-belief.

While reflecting on their poor run of form in the IPL so far, Mumbai Indians coach John Wright admitted that Pollard's return to form is a big boost for the side. "Getting someone like Pollard back to form is a big boost ahead of heading back to Mumbai," Wright said during the post-match press conference.
