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.

Shreyas Iyer made a big revelation during the post-match presentation, which has raised a lot of questions. “CEO is also involved in team selection,” Shreyas said.

Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Mumbai Indians by 52 runs to keep their playoffs hopes alive in IPL 2022. KKR made five changes for the game against the five-time champions.

They are seventh in the table, with 10 points from 12 games. KKR have used five different opening combinations in 12 games, which didn’t go down well with the cricket experts. The KKR skipper was asked about the constant chopping and changing.

“It is difficult. I had to go through the same experience when I started playing IPL. We discuss with the coaches, CEO is also involved in team selection. Brendon McCullum goes to the players to inform them if they are not playing. All of them support the decision taken by the management. The way players turn to the ground, it’s something to be proud of as a captain.”

Venky Mysore has no right to be involved in selection matters as the authority lies with captain and the coach. He is undermining the the captain and coach’s authority.
