Former West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has created history by becoming the first cricketer to play 400 Twenty20s.

He reached the milestone recently when his team, Melbourne Renegades, played against Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League in Australia.

His Twenty20 career started in 2006 in the Stanford Twenty20 tournament against the Cayman Island.

Pollard, 30, continuously plays in Twenty20 leagues throughout the globe — mainly the Indian Premier League, the Pakistan Super league, NatWest Twenty20 blast (England) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

In his 400 matches, Pollard has amassed 7,830 runs, taken 243 wickets and 239 catches.

The Trinidadian, who is one of the most sought after Twenty20 players in the world, boasted about winning every Twenty20 league he played in except England.
