I am doing what has been asked of me, says Venkatesh Iyer

Kolkata Knight Riders' opener Venkatesh Iyer said that he is doing what has been asked of him by the team. He also expressed his delight at ending up as the winning team in a close chase. In a chase of 136, Iyer scored a fluent 55, laced with four fours and three sixes.

He also shared an opening partnership of 96 with Shubman Gill (46) to set the base for Kolkata's topsy-turvy three-wicket win over Delhi Capitals at Sharjah on Wednesday. "I am doing what has been asked of me. I am very happy that we ended on the winning side. There is no difference. I came out and played the way I wanted to play. I am grateful to the management. It is a wonderful place to come and play," said Iyer, who was adjudged 'Player of the Match' for his knock.
