Video: Shreyas Iyer gets angry at Venkatesh Iyer for not taking the second run

Last night’s encounter between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals was one of the most thrilling matches in IPL 2022 so far. The 30th match of the season that was played at the Brabourne Stadium ended up in favour of the Royals but it was not even close the being a one sided match and it was full of twists and turns.

Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and following the common consensus of the season they opted to bowl first. But seeing the pitch condition it was a wrong decision and Jos Buttler punished the Knights by showing it to them from the very first delivery. The ball was coming to the bat perfectly and the pitch favoured the batsmen a lot. Jos Buttler took full advantage of this and ended up scoring his second century of the season. Rajasthan Royals were thus able to score a mammoth first innings total of 217.

This might look like a massive total and it might scare off most teams but Kolkata Knight Riders were more than prepared. Thanks to the great start that Aaron Finch gave to them with his sensational fifty, KKR gained much confidence.

However it was captain Shreyas Iyer’s incredible knock that gave KKR a real hope of winning the match.

He scored a sensational knock of 85 off 51 and almost won the match for Kolkata Knight Riders. However, the captain was seen getting angry at his player Venkatesh Iyer. Well in a particular over of Trent Boult, Shreyas Iyer wanted to take two runs and he has almost committed for the second run but Venkatesh Iyer decided not to run and this infuriated the captain and he was seen shouting angry at the player.
