KKR Captain Shreyas Iyer Explains Choice Of Varun Chakravarthy For Final Over vs Jos Buttler

KKR Captain Shreyas Iyer talked about why he chose Varun Chakravarthy to bowl the final over against Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2024. He said it was tough to explain what went wrong in the game, and emotions were high in the last moments because they didn’t expect such a close match. Giving Varun the last over was a strategic decision. Despite his efforts, Buttler managed to win the game for Rajasthan Royals.

It was a disappointing loss for KKR, but Shreyas didn’t blame any individual player for the defeat. He acknowledged that every player gave their best, but sometimes things don’t go as planned in cricket. Shreyas remained optimistic, focusing on learning from the experience and improving for the next match.”Bitter pill to swallow, emotions were roller-coaster, didn’t think this is the situation we’d get into.”

“It’s a funny game, [Rovman] was striking well. Hard to explain what happened, have to take it on the chin and move on. At this point, you have to see to it that you bowl your best deliveries, a little miss here and there and you’re sent out of the ground,” Shreyas was quoted by ESPNcricinfo as saying.The captain mentioned that they will reflect on the 2-wicket defeat against RR and bounce back stronger in the tournament.”

“He praised Sunil Narine as a valuable player for the Kolkata team, highlighting his impressive performance of scoring 109 runs and taking two wickets in the first innings.”Glad it happened here and not in the later half of the tournament. We need to introspect and come back stronger. Narine is a great asset to the team, showing it in every game when he comes out to bat.”

“That kind of character, glad he’s part of our team. Since Buttler was striking it clean, I thought let’s take the pace off and give it to Varun Chakravarthy. He was clean in his hitting as well. Just let it go, sink in, it’s all about relaxing, rejuvenating. We had a tough game, within 2-3 days, it was important that we learn from our mistakes and bounce back strong,” he added.Summing up the game, under the leadership of Sanju Samson, RR won the toss and chose to field.
