Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer has set the stage on fire in the second phase of IPL 2021 in the UAE. The all-rounder from Madhya Pradesh, who is one of the most important reasons behind KKR’s turnaround, is keen to tell the world that he can do roles as both batsman and bowler.

In the four matches so far, he has chipped in 126 runs at an average of 42.00. The flying starts from him have enabled KKR to get into a commanding position of the game. Venkatesh Iyer has chipped in with crucial wickets in the middle overs.

In a recent chat with teammate Nitish Rana, Iyer stressed that he is an all-rounder and wants to tell that everyone.

“I am an all-rounder and I want to tell the world that I can do roles as both batsman and bowler. When skipper Eoin Morgan handed me the ball, I was just focusing on the first six balls. Obviously, I had the thought of bowling three or four overs, but initially, I just focused on bowling the six balls perfectly,” Venkatesh Iyer said to Rana in a video posted by IPL on Twitter

“Do not forget his name” – Kevin Pietersen on Venkatesh Iyer

Venkatesh Iyer was a completely unknown commodity before the second phase of the IPL 2021 but has quickly made a mark for himself. Having completed an MBA in Finance, Venkatesh got an offer from Deloitte in 2018 but the cricketer turned it down. Venkatesh Iyer wanted to stay in Indore and continue playing for Maharashtra.

Impressed by his exploits, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen feels Venkatesh Iyer is a player to watch out for in the future.

“Do not forget this name – Venkatesh Iyer!” Kevin Pietersen tweeted.
