Antigua:

A much sought-after player in the IPL but a mediocre performer for the West Indies, hard-hitting all-rounder Kieron Pollard says he is keen to set the record straight and make it big with his national team.

"I am very, very, very, very hungry to make it big as a West Indian cricketer. I am passionate about it. But I can tell you it is not for want of effort," Pollard said.

Pollard has 726 runs from 40 matches at 20.16 average in one-dayers which has led West Indian great Michael Holding to state that he is not yet fit to be an international cricketer.

"People can have their own opinion and express it. It's like if I feel saying something I would do so. They are entitled to do so. I can only try my best," retorted Pollard.
