It has been decided between which two teams will the title match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) be held. The teams of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, will face each other at the International Stadium in Dubai on Friday. The final match is not going to be easy for CSK. In front of him will be the team which is in excellent form this season.
Eoin Morgan’s team KKR had a disappointing start to IPL-14. In May, when the IPL was postponed due to Corona, KKR was at the seventh position in the points table. He had won only two out of seven matches. A charismatic performance was expected from him to reach the playoffs.
Luck changed with new place and new player
After about 4 months, when the second phase of IPL-14 started in UAE, this team looked in a different style. In the playing 11, a player got entry, which only a few cricket fans would know. KKR’s first match in UAE was against RCB. In this match, KKR bowlers bundled out Virat Kohli’s team for 92 runs. The easy target of 93 runs was achieved by KKR for the loss of one wicket. Chasing this small target, KKR found a batsman in Venkatesh Iyer who became a sensation of IPL-14.
Iyer scored 41 runs in 27 balls in that match. His batting gave life to KKR. After this, the team started playing every match not only to win but also to improve its run rate. Iyer got better after every match. This team of Shahrukh Khan played 7 matches in UAE and won 5. He made it to the playoffs with 14 points.
Venkatesh Iyer played a big role in taking KKR to this point. Iyer batted well in Qualifier-2 against Delhi Capitals. He scored a half-century in this match. This young batsman has played 9 matches in IPL and scored 320 runs. Not only this, he has also left an impact with the ball. He has taken 3 wickets. KKR will hope that Venkatesh Iyer will perform well in the final as well and help the team clinch the IPL trophy for the third time.
