"We have discovered a player in Venkatesh Iyer, he is a tasteful player as well as he is a magnificent individual and group man too. He struck the ball brilliantly and from ball one, so I think some about these enormous sixes that he hit really changed the beat of the game and got us into a triumphant position," said Hussey.

"Besides, the initial organization we had between those two players was simply class embodied. They complete one another all around well, in the event that one player is going, the other one pauses for a minute or two and gives the other individual the strike.

"Also, I think they run between the wickets all around well. Thus, we have certainly tracked down a decent opening organization there and ideally proceeds for another game," he added.
