Navjot Singh Sidhu praises this 29-year-old batter as the most consistent player of Ind T20 League 2024

Kolkata are the champions of the Indian T20 League 2024. The Shreyas Iyer-led side defeated Hyderabad by 8 wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai to claim their third title after a long wait of 10 years. Kolkata were the best franchise in the league stage and they depicted their dominance in the Qualifier 1 and final against Pat Cummins-led Hyderabad. 

The Knights dismissed the opponents for 113 runs and they completed the run chase in 10.3 overs. Venkatesh Iyer smashed an unbeaten 50 to steer the Purple Army to another glorious victory. The southpaw was inconsistent at the beginning of the season but gradually gained momentum to display two brilliant performances in the Playoffs stage and the final.

His fifty in the Qualifier 1 against the Orange Army made their team qualify for the finals in the first place. Also, in the group stages matches against Mumbai, Venky Iyer amassed 70 and 42 runs respectively. 

Ex-Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu praised the 29-year-old left-handed batter for his consistent performance with the bat. 

“Venkatesh Iyer has been Mr Consistent of Indian T20 League 2024. He played brilliant knocks for Kolkata when it mattered the most. He was failing when the league started but kept his best for the second phase of the tournament.

“He was amazing against Hyderabad in Qualifier 1 and repeated his performance against the same team in the final. That’s called consistency. Iyer played his part in the success of Kolkata,” he added.

In the meantime, Mitchell Starc also shattered two crucial stumps to be named as the ‘Player of the Match’ in the grand finale. He was also awarded the POTM in the Qualifier 1 of the tournament.
