In the 30th match of the Indian premier league, Kolkata knight riders faced Rajasthan Royals as they lost by 7 runs while Kolkata knight riders skipper Shreyas Iyer looked frustrated after his 51 balls 85 went into no purpose as the team faced a frustrating loss.
The help of Jos Buttler‘s amazing century made Kolkata Knight riders chase a difficult target of 217 runs as KKR lost the match in the dramatic scene when they lost 4 wickets in the 17th over including Yuzvendra Chahal’s Hattrick and to be all out for 210.
A viral video has been since released when Iyer got dismissed and was unhappy with Brendon McCullum’s late-game tactic as seen in an unheard argument with the head coach sitting in the dugout.
As seen in the viral video, disappointed Shreyas Iyer with the helmet and bat in hand after his dismissal can be seen walking up to KKR head coach, Brendan McCullum and aiming at the field. Meanwhile, McCullum did not argue with the skipper, Iyer.
The downfall of KKR started in the 17th over of the match, when Yuzvendra Chahal came to bowl and picked up 4 wickets including a hat-trick. Yuzi took Iyer, Shivam Mavi, and Pat Cummins for a hattrick. This over was the turning point of the match as Yuzi finished with terrific bowling figures of 5/40 in 4 overs.
KKR’s Iyer-finch partnership took KKR near victory with only 40 runs needed from 24 balls and six wickets in hand as it was expected to be an easy win for the former IPL champions but Yuzi’s 17th over changed the appearance of the match.
