Left-handed KKR opener Venkatesh Iyer made a difference to KKR’s batting lineup since his debut for the side. In his first two games, he has played match-winning knocks both helping his team to win games. He scored his maiden IPL fifty against Mumbai Indians in the last game.

Venkatesh Iyer’s Madhya Pradesh coach Chandrakant Pandit has reacted after his first two IPL knocks. The southpaw scored 198 against Punjab in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2021 in the build-up to the IPL. Talking to Sportskeeda, Chandrakant Pandit opened up on Iyer’s IPL campaign so far and his performance in domestic cricket.

“I promoted Venkatesh Iyer to open in 2020 in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He used to bat at No.6 before I came. He is playing at that [IPL] level and it is not a surprise. He has been a very important player for Madhya Pradesh. I am very happy that he has started well in the IPL. He has always been confident in domestic cricket and he always believes in his abilities, irrespective of the situation,” he said.

Iyer’s MP coach further spoke about his aggressive batting approach. He has mixed caution with aggression with a blend of fearlessness to his batting as well.

“His approach has always been very fearless. He has never thought about the consequences of his fearless style and if he will get out playing that way. When playing at the highest level, there is a bit of inexperience and it might take a little time to settle down. Venkatesh, though, has been repeating the things that made him successful in domestic cricket,” he added.

After two good starts, he will have a tough test against CSK who are second on the points table. KKR meanwhile has a chance to get to the third position if they beat CSK in Abu Dhabi.
