Venkatesh Iyer has taken the Indian Premier League by storm in short order, though Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to keep the buccaneering left-hander quiet. Jason Holder banged the ball hard into the surface as Iyer looked to pump it downtown off the front foot. The shot selection was far from ideal on this occasion, with Kane Williamson at mid-off holding onto the feeble chip. Kolkata soon lost Rahul Tripathi in the chase, thrusting further burden on Shubman Gill's shoulders.
