“The Plans Are Set.” Says Venkatesh Iyer

“I just go with the flow. I’m taking things one day at a time. Of course, I’m thinking about how to approach things there, how to prepare for the bouncy tracks and my role as a bowler, a fielder, and a batter. Everything has worked out, but I’m still taking things day by day “He stated.

“Right now, my focus is on how to prepare for tomorrow. As in the next practice session, and then how to practice in South Africa once I arrive. That is on my mind, not just how I intend to perform on the pitch “He continued.

“Of course, the plans are set, but I’m not particularly forward-thinking.”

The KKR cricketer also discussed his development as an all-rounder. Claiming that his role is more than just batting and bowling.

“Personally, I’ve always wanted to develop as an all-rounder. I’ve always wanted to develop as a cricketer. Which includes not only batting and bowling, but also fielding and leadership skills on the field. You know, just giving the captain advice or making a few wise decisions here and there.” He elaborated.

“Even if you are not the captain, if you do not have the position. You can still contribute to your side by demonstrating your leadership skills.” Iyer added.

“So I’m really working on that, and I’m really excited that it’s happening. I’m meeting my quota, batting up the order at times and also playing the role of a finisher, and I’m being flexible, which is exactly how I want it to be.”
