Despite the Kolkata Knight Riders’ failure to reach the Playoffs, the IPL 2023 season will be etched in Venkatesh Iyer’s memory forever. Iyer amassed a total of 404 runs in 14 matches, maintaining an outstanding strike rate of 145.85, demonstrating exceptional form.

Additionally, this season marked a significant milestone for him as he scored his maiden century in the IPL during a match against the Mumbai Indians. Iyer’s hundred became only the second player from the Kolkata franchise to achieve a century-plus score in the tournament’s history. Brendon McCullum, who achieved this feat 15 years ago during the inaugural season, was the first.
