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’s statement after the last game created big controversy leading to criticism of the KKR CEO Venky Mysore. Iyer had revealed that Venky is also involved in the selection process, along with the captain and coach. Former India cricketers and fans slammed the KKR management for allowing Mysore to take the selection calls.

They stated that CEO has no right to be involved in the selection matters, and it should be left to the captain and coaches. Issuing clarification after winning the game against SRH, 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.

“I want to clarify my statement from the last game. Our CEO only consoles players who fail to make it to the playing XI. He is not involved in the selection process,” he said.
