Venkatesh Iyer had a dream IPL debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders, easing his team over the line with a confident 41 not out off 27 deliveries. He also had his bowlers to thank, who dismissed RCB for just 92 and made the opener’s task far less pressurised. His evening would only get better, as after the game Virat Kohli was photographed chatting with the newcomer, offering him a sample of his immense cricketing brain. It is heartening to see the game’s biggest star consistently take time out of his own to help those at different stages on their cricketing journeys.
