The Way They're Playing Is Pure Bliss: Iyer Lauds Narine-Salt Opening Pair

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India]: Following his side's 98-run win over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Shreyas Iyer lauded the opening pair of Sunil Narine and Phil Salt for their performances throughout the season.

An all-round KKR went to the top of the points table with a 98 run win over LSG at Lucknow om Sunday, with Narine delivering an all-round show and Harshit Rana, and Varun Chakrawarthy bowling magnificent spells.

Following the game, Iyer said in the post-match presentation, "The last 6 matches in the dressing room there has been havoc, teammates are coming in and asking skip what is happening, we are losing tosses, but we are winning games that's what matters. We had a great start in the powerplay. Sunil mentioned in the time-out that anything around 200 is good."

"A lefty-righty combination makes thing difficult for the opposition, the bowlers have to change their plans and that makes a difference. (on performance of uncapped players) It is all about the freedom, to go out and express themselves. We want to go out and be positive whatever the situation is, sometimes it does not work out but sometimes it does.

(On Narine and Salt) They have been splendid for us, the way they are playing their shots is pure bliss. They are setting us up and giving is momentum and no matter what the situation is, we are playing with a positive mindset," he added.
