KKR vs RR: Venkatesh Iyer came to the rescue of Nitish Rana, said – one match does not make a bad bowler
Nitish Rana decided to bowl out the first over when Kolkata needed 149 runs to defend. Questions are being raised that Nitish Rana did it himself by not giving the first over to the regular bowlers which went against the team.
On Thursday, an important match was played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It was very important for Kolkata to win this match. Although Kolkata lost in this match. Kolkata had to save 149 runs. However, Rajasthan proved this target of Kolkata dwarf while batting unilaterally and quickly. After the defeat of Kolkata, a decision of its captain Nitish Rana is being criticized a lot. Actually, Nitish Rana decided to bowl the first over when Kolkata had 149 runs to save. Questions are being raised that Nitish Rana did it himself by not giving the first over to the regular bowlers which went against the team.
Now this decision of Nitish Rana has been defended by a player of the team. He has said that one match does not make him a bad bowler. The player who has defended Nitish Rana is Venkatesh Iyer. Venkatesh Iyer clearly said that the left-handed batsman (Jaiswal) was at the crease and he (Rana) is an off-spinner. So I don’t think it was a wrong decision. This decision of Rana overshadowed the team. Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 26 runs in this over with the help of two sixes and three fours. The Royals easily won the match by nine wickets. But Venkatesh said if he had got a wicket in this over, the scenario would have been different.
He said, “We all know that he is capable of bowling. He has taken important wickets many times in his career. His decision did not go in favor of our team but if he (Jaiswal) had got the wicket, it would have been a ‘masterstroke’ of the captain. Such things keep happening in the game. “Venkatesh said,” The wicket was a bit slow and we wanted to take advantage of it through the spinners with the new ball. It didn’t happen but Rana is an unbelievable bowler. Whenever he bowled economically, he also took wickets. One match doesn’t make him a bad bowler.
