Talking of his efficiency after the match, Iyer mentioned: “Would have been happier if we would’ve finished on the winning side but happy with my performance. They’ve shown faith in me and it was a very beautiful wicket to bat on. Once you’ve scored those 30-40 runs, it’s just about how you continue. Both of their new ball bowlers were swing bowlers and when you allow swing bowlers to settle down, it can be a problem. So I used my feet, went deep in the crease. After the ball stops swinging it’s about how you manoeuvre. I keep getting hit in every game here and there.

The thought about going out came but my coach and players urged me to keep going. I think we fell 15-20 runs short. But given how MI were going, they would’ve chased it down in the next over anyways. But their death bowling was very nice. If we look at their last three-four overs, they didn’t give away too many runs. Credit to them.”

Regardless of Iyer’s ton, KKR could not safe a win, with Mumbai Indians taking two factors fro the match, courtesy of their 5-wicket win with 2.2 overs to spare.
