KKR opener Venkatesh Iyer makes another impactful fifty against PBKS

Sunil Gavaskar in one of his columns for the TOI mentioned that Iyer is the one all-rounder that India is looking for. He balls the Yorkers right and doesn’t allow the batsmen to slog him. While batting his upright stans helps him pull the ball with great control while his drives are fabulously through the offside like all great Lefties of the game do.

Over the years, IPL has been that one platform that provides the youngster with the opportunity to get noticed. Not only by the selectors but also by the crowd. Several players like Ravi Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, and Hardik Pandya have made their way to the Indian team on the basis of their great performances in IPL.

Similarly, Venkatesh Iyer, with his fabulous form in the IPL 2021, seems to be another star in the making. Iyer has played just 5 matches in this phase of the IPL and has already 2 fifties to his name. He has accumulated 193 runs in total for his side, in those five innings. Not only that, but he has also been a great contributor with the ball in hand.  Iyer has bowled in into two innings and has conceded only 34 runs at an economy of 6.8 and has managed to pick up 2 crucial wickets as well.

His performances have not gone unnoticed by the legends of the games. Sunil Gavaskar in one of his columns for the TOI mentioned that Iyer is the one all-rounder that India is looking for. He balls the Yorkers right and doesn’t allow the batsmen to slog him. While batting his upright stans helps him pull the ball with great control while his drives are fabulously through the offside like all great Lefties of the game do.

Iyer has been the driving force behind Kolkata Knight Rider’s great campaign in this second half and he shall receive the due credit if his side makes it to the playoffs.
