Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer on the verge of being out of the 2022 season of IPL (Shreyas Iyer) The statement, which came after the 52-run win against Mumbai Indians, has raised questions as to whether the performance graph has fallen due to more intervention by the management? So far, 20 players have been given a chance in 12 matches and there has not been a single match when a playing XI has been kept. This did not bring stability to the team. After the match against Mumbai, Iyer was asked which team (KKR) What is the reaction of the players to the frequent changes, he said, ‘It is very difficult. Coaches and sometimes CEOs are also involved in team selection. Every player is trying his best.
Management is not unanimous on many issues which has affected the performance of the team . Iyer’s captaincy was praised a lot while captain of Delhi Capitals but with KKR it has turned out to be the complete opposite. The reason for this is poor decisions about team selection and even former India coach Ravi Shastri questioned how world number one fast bowler Pat Cummins was left out in five matches .
Venky not meddling in Mysore’s selection matters?
CEO Venky Mysore declined to answer questions about his interference in team selection matters but a source close to the KKR management said that Iyer ‘s statements were distorted . Defending Mysore, the source said, “The statement has been distorted.” I don’t think Venky interferes in team selection. It is the right of the captain and coach. Sometimes the opinion of the CEO is sought and he may have given some suggestion. A source said, “KKR’s coaching staff consists of Brendon McCullum, David Hussey and Abhishek Nair. Abhishek may be in charge of KKR Academy but he has a lot of role in team management.
So did Shreyas Iyer lie?
The CEO of Kolkata Knight Riders is not saying anything on this issue. Team sources are telling that what Shreyas Iyer has said is not the same. So the question here is what lie is the Kolkata captain telling. Shreyas Iyer’s talk has created a ruckus but the good thing for the team is that it has found its momentum by winning a big win over Mumbai Indians.
