Meanwhile, former batter Irfan Pathan praised Venkatesh Iyer for his and said that the all-rounder was the biggest positive for him from the series. "Two back to back wins defending the total with the wet ball. Winning this game with one bowler short was special. Captain Rohit Sharma was fantastic in managing the bowlers," tweeted Irfan Pathan.
