West Indies white-ball captain Kieron Pollard says it is his will to win that helps drive his franchise cricket career which continues to be littered with success.

The 32-year-old allrounder stands on the brink of Abu Dhabi T10 glory after his team Deccan Gladiators made it to Sunday's final. Pollard is also a multiple IPL champion, has a T20 World Cup winner's medal on his mantlepiece, is one of the most experienced T20 players in the world.

He has taken in franchise tournaments the world over, from his native Caribbean islands to England, Australia, Bangladesh, the UAE and Canada. For Pollard, each stop has been a learning experience and he hopes to feed his gained knowledge back into both West Indian cricket and across the ever-expanding footprint of T20 leagues across the globe.

...Pollard hadn’t played a proper ODI game for quite a while, ...Regional super 50 is being played now but instead of coming home and be a part, he has seen it fit to journey to Abu Dhabi and play “bat up and ketch”

Don't think it works like that. Squads were selected for the duration of the tournament, none of the WI ODI or T20 players were selected for the Super50.
This isn't the 4-day where squads are selected for each round.

What kind of system is that? Knowing his ODI record, Pollard, and especially now that he is captain, should have been the first to tell CWI that he wants to play the Super 50 when his AFG tour ends. But it seems like he really doesn't want to play.
We shouldn't rebuke West Indians who choose to support other teams. The players themselves, many of them, don't have WI as first priority.
