"Who's Ed Pollock?" opposing fans were asking in 2017 when the youngster was pitched into the Bears T20 team from apparently nowhere to open the batting. They soon found out.
Polly blazed to prominence with some sensational displays of clean-hitting. Given his chance at the top of the order, the 22-year-old responded by smashing 293 runs at a blistering strike-rate of 174.69.
It was a sensational start for the former Durham MCCU, Unicorns and Herefordshire batsman which he carried on last season. Now he just wants to keep building on his white-ball prowess - and also make his entry into championship cricket. The Bears fans are loving the thought of Polly freeing up again this year!
