Dubai: Kolkata Knight Riders’ Venkatesh Iyer has become the biggest invention of the 2021 IPL season. Venkatesh, who has been playing in the IPL since the UAE edition, will end the season with a stellar performance in the final. KKR coach Brendon McCullum has praised Venkatesh for being named the best all-rounder in the IPL.

McCullum said Venkatesh would have played for India in India had the game not been interrupted after Kovid 19. The young star performed superbly. A pause in the game delayed the player’s debut. The Kolkata coach said Venkatesh was able to seize the opportunity.

Venkatesh has his own style of play. Aggressive hitting is important. And it makes a huge difference in the game. The player can play by assuming the challenge. Expect to see Venkatesh in the same way in the future. McCullum says Venkatesh is also a smart hitter. Venkatesh played ten games for KKR. He returned with 370 runs.

McCullum, meanwhile, explains why Andre Russell didn’t get a chance in the final. He made it clear that Russell was not completely injury free. Russell worked hard to get back into shape. But there is still a great risk when playing. McCullum said Russell was sent off in the final because of that risk. Russell was replaced by Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. However, Shakib did not perform as well as expected in the final.
