IPL 2022: Shreyas Iyer tracks back his comment on KKR CEO’s involvement in playing XI selection – Firstcricket News, Firstpost


After stirring controversy with his comments on Kolkata Knight Riders CEO Venky Mysore’s alleged involvement in picking playing XI, the franchise’s captain Shreyas Iyer tracked back on his comment right after their massive 54-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday.

“I want to clarify from the last interview. When I took the CEO’s name, I wanted basically to say he’s there to console players sitting out. Really tough for us as well when we select the teams,” Shreyas said in the post-match press conference.

Earlier this week after KKR’s 52-run win over Mumbai Indians, Shreyas said it was tough to tell players that they were not in the playing XI while adding that the franchise’s coach Brendon McCullum and CEO Mysore have their say in the line-up too.

“It is really difficult (to tell players they won’t play). Coach and at times, CEO is also obviously involved in team selections,” Shreyas Iyer told official broadcaster Star Sports.

The 27-year-old skipper, however, added that players took it well as they were all pumped up to win the game, where KKR made five changes to their playing XI after a humiliating 75-run loss to Lucknow Super Giants over the weekend.

“Each and every player takes it well, and they have put in their best efforts. The win was comprehensive, and when I spoke to the players, they were pumped up to win the game today,” he said.
