Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated KKR in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 final in Dubai on Friday to lift their fourth IPL title. KKR had won two games in the IPL 2021 during the first half but the side came back with strong performances in the UAE leg to qualify for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, KKR head coach Brendon McCullum had said opening batter Venkatesh Iyer was a “big catalyst” in the side’s redemption in the second half of the IPL.
“Venkatesh Iyer has been quite an incredible story. Looking back, he was actually going to play the next game when we were in India. In a funny way, the break came there at a good time too,” said McCullum during the post-match press conference.
“He will be challenged to change his methods at times too. He might not necessarily be the most consistent because of his flamboyancy. I hope he remains the Venkatesh Iyer that we have seen so far. He’s got an enormous future in this game, and he’s a very intelligent man. He was a big catalyst for our turnaround this season,” McCullum added.
