Iyer said the team's CEO only consoles players who are not selected, and by no means he take calls regarding the selection of the players.

Madan Lal took a dig at Kolkata Knight Riders CEO Venky Mysore and questioned his involvement in the selection process.

Madan La reacted to KKR captain Shreyas Iyer’s recent admission about CEO’s involvement.

Shreyas Iyer had recently mentioned that CEO Venky Mysore gives his input in the team selection alongside the head coach Brendon McCullum.

“Along with me, the coach and CEO are also involved in team selection. Every player gives their 100 percent even if they are not selected for a particular match, Iyer had said.

Madan Lal slammed the team management for allowing this practice. “I am personally shocked and dismayed by Iyer’s revelations. If that’s true, what is the role of a coach and other support staff? It is the job of coaches and captains to select the team and not the CEO. That’s why KKR has failed in IPL 2022,” Madan Lal was quoted by News 18.
