Following the victory, KKR captain Shreyas Iyer revealed how difficult it is to inform players that they are not in the playing XI. He also state that the “CEO (Venky Mysore) is involve in team selection.”
“It’s especially difficult because I was in that position when I first started playing in the IPL. We talk with the coaches, and obviously, the CEO is involve in team selection. So Baz (Brendon McCullum) goes to the players and informs them. To be honest, they are all very supportive in terms of decision making and the way they show up to the field and support each and every individual. It is something I am very proud of as captain, and I am very happy with how we play today “Iyer state this during the post-match presentation.
“The CEO is involve in team selection” Shreyas Iyer
Iyer said of the victory over the Mumbai Indians: “Certainly. If you look at the previous games we lost, especially the last one. We lost by a large margin, so coming back and winning by a large margin is very satisfying, and that’s what we were looking for. We obviously got off to a great start on the powerplay, and from there, Nitish came on. He took his time at first, but after hitting sixes off Pollard. He saw that was the right over to take on, and he did.”
“However, I thought it was difficult for the new batters to come in and keep going. They needed a few balls to get set. Once you know how the wicket is playing, you can easily capitalise, so that was the conversation we had today, I felt “He continued.
KKR scored 165/9 in 20 overs while batting first. Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana each scored 43 runs. At one point, KKR were cruising at 123/2 in the 13th over, but Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc, going on to record his best bowling figures in the IPL — 5/10.
No Mumbai Indians batter was able to stay at the crease for the duration, and they were eventually bowled out for 113. Andre Russell took two wickets, while Cummins took three.
