Pollard superbly led the South African Under-20s at the Junior World Championships in New Zealand. The Junior Boks twice beat the NZ U20s en route to the final, where they were edged 21-20 by England in Auckland on Friday.

The Mumbai Indians made a happy return to Indian shores, tossing the form book right out the window as some big hitting from Kieron Pollard (28* from 12 balls) and Aditya Tare (16* from 6 balls) took them to a shock 5 wicket win over the table topping Kings XI Punjab in a game played in front of 18,000 school children at Mumbai's famous Wankhede Stadium.

Batting first on winning the toss, the Kings XI Punjab posted an under par 168-5 on what was a very good pitch for stroke making. Wriddhiman Saha recovered from a slow start to post a decent unbeaten 59 from 47 balls, while Glen Maxwell contributed a handy 45 from 27 balls in the middle of the innings.

It's going to be Sachin vs Rahul in the final of the Champions League T20 as the IPL Champions, Mumbai Indians, set up a dream finale with the Rajasthan Royals at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi with a slightly nervy 6 wicket win against a Trinidad & Tobago side which continued to punch above their weight in this tournament.

Deprived of stars like Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Kevon Cooper, who would otherwise form the cornerstone of their middle order, Trinidad & Tobago continued to produce some competitive cricket and took their semi-final against the cash rich Mumbai Indians down to the final over.

The World T20 Champions, West Indies, breezed through to a 27-run win against Australia in the sole T20 International at Brisbane to end their short tour of Australia on a high. Batting first on winning the toss, West Indies made the most of excellent batting conditions and a second string Australian line-up to post an imposing 191-6 on the board in their 20 overs. Johnson Charles continued his superb form from the One Day series to make a blistering 57 from just 35 balls to give the visitors the perfect start. Australia were never really in the hunt in their chase, with two run outs at the top of the order, especially that of top scorer Adam Voges (55 from 31 balls) setting them back in a big way. In the end, the hosts' run chase petered out to 164-8 with Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard doing the damage with the ball taking 2 and 3 wickets respectively.

The West Indies lost Chris Gayle (8) early to an outstanding catch from Nathan Counter-Nile, but recovered thanks to an 88 run partnership between Charles and Darren Bravo (32). At that stage the Windies were scoring at 9 an over, and with wickets in hand threatened to make well above 200. However, the Australians were able to sneak some quiet overs in the middle and pick up wickets just when the West Indies batsmen were threatening to cut loose.

Australia beat the West Indies by five wickets in game four to go four-nil up in the Commonwealth Bank ODI Series.

Kieron Pollard was named man of the match for an unbeaten 109, while Mitchell Johnson took 3-36 and Ben Cutting 3-45 with the ball for Australia. Shane Watson top scored for the home side with 76.

West Indies won the toss and opted to make first use of the pitch at the Sydeny Cricket Ground. The decision proved to be a total disaster as the visitors slipped to 55-6 inside 20 overs with Narsingh Deonarine the only batsman amongst those dismissed reaching double figures. Kieron Pollard played a responsible innings given the circumstances and shared a 43-run stand with skipper Darren Sammy chipping in with 25.
