“You must always think about how best to utilize such special players” – says Madhya Pradesh coach Chandrakant Pandit on KKR opener Venkatesh Iyer
Madhya Pradesh coach Chandrakant Pandit recently revealed the reason behind Venkatesh Iyer’s transformation from middle-order batsman to opener. Before getting an opportunity opening, Iyer used to bat at number 6 and was not able to get enough deliveries to showcase his special abilities with the bat, according to the MP’s coach.
Due to this, Chandrakant Pandit decided to promote Iyer to the top order to give the southpaw an ideal platform to blossom. In an exclusive chat with Sportskeeda, Madhya Pradesh coach Chandrakant Pandit spoke about Venkatesh Iyer’s transition into an opener and said:
“Earlier, when he batted at 6, he didn’t get enough balls to play so I decided to push him to open. At 6, there are a few restrictions also and I felt that his abilities needed to be utilized better. You must always think about how best to utilize such special players. At first, he was reluctant because he had never faced the new ball and there were obviously a few doubts that had crept in. But then we agreed that he needed to bat at the top because of the ability he has.”
KKR is currently riding high on confidence after successive victories in the second half of the IPL in UAE. They will now face a tough opponent in CSK in their next match on Sunday.
