Venkatesh Iyer was the first victim of his anger and then coach Brendon McCullum. Rajasthan’s Trent Boult was bowling in the 16th over of Kolkata’s innings. On the last ball of the over, Venkatesh played a shot towards deep backward point. Captain Shreyas wanted to take two runs, but Venkatesh refused him. Shreyas got angry on this. He shouted and scolded Venkatesh on the pitch itself.

After this, on the fourth ball of the 17th over, Yuzvendra Chahal made Shreyas Iyer lbw.

Shreyas Iyer got furious at his coach when Pat Cummins was stopped and sent to Mavi. Its video went viral on social media.
After the dismissal of Iyer, Mavi also returned to the pavilion on the next ball. In an attempt to hit a six off Chahal, he caught Riyan Parag on the Mavi boundary.
