IPL 2023: Venkatesh Iyer creates history, sets two big records together

New Delhi: Venkatesh Iyer of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) created history against the Mumbai Indians (MI) on Sunday (April 16). He has become the second-best player for KKR to score a century in the IPL after Brendon McCullum. McCullum scored a brilliant 158 runs in the first match of IPL history. Since then, many batsmen came close to reaching the three-figure mark for KKR but kept failing. With this, Venkatesh Iyer has registered his name on another special list.

Let us tell you that the record of hitting the maximum number of sixes in an innings belongs to Indian batsman Murali Vijay. He has hit 11 home runs in an inning. The names of Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer come second in this list of players who have hit 10 or more sixes in an inning. At the same time, the record of hitting nine sixes in an inning is recorded in the names of nine batsmen.

In which the names of Venkatesh Iyer, Yuvraj Singh, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Ishaan Kishan, and Rituraj Gaikwad are included. This season was a break season for Venkatesh Iyer after failing to make an impact last season. After being one of the players retained by KKR ahead of the IPL in 2022, he scored just 182 runs in 12 matches at an average of 16.55.
