The 13th edition of the Indian Premiere League has been completed successfully on the 10th of November. Mumbai Indians, led by Rohit Sharma has emerged victorious for 5th time.
This year’s IPL was a little different, as it happened in the UAE. Of course, all thanks to the Corona Virus Pandemic. But one has to accept that this season of this cricketing extravaganza was really fun. Moreover, this was exactly what the people needed after a rather stressful year.
Like always, BCCI organized a grand presentation ceremony after the IPL 2020 final ended. Along with the Orange Cap, Purple Cap, and the Best Emerging Player of the Season award, there was also a unique prize for the batsman with the best strike rate in the 13th IPL season.
The person with the best strike rate in the season took home the gorgeous Tata Altroz Car.

Kieron Pollard Wins The Tata Altroz Car
Although, there was tight competition from fellow Mumbai all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard emerged as the batsman with the highest strike rate in the IPL 2020.
Pollard finished with 268 runs in his 12 innings for the Mumbai Indians. His strike rate of 191.42 helped the MI vice-captain win the award.
Hardik Pandya ended the season with 281 runs in 13 innings. While he could have inched closer to Pollard in the IPL 2020 Final, the Baroda-based player could manage only three runs off five deliveries to settle with a strike rate of 178.98. Meanwhile, Pollard went on a batting spree to improve his numbers further.
Well, I am sure Hardik would not have mind Pollard winning this car because at the end the trophy came to their camp and that is what matters at the end of the day.
