The captain believes it brings good luck. iyer being the home captain was handed the coin and he kissed it before the toss. Iyer was caught doing the same against LSG as well but unlike the game, KKR lost this toss. Sanju Samson-led side won and opted to field first.

The KKR skipper also lavished praise on veteran Sunil Narine who is in an outstanding form in IPL 2024 after a bleak outing the previous year.

“Whenever he (Narine) comes in, he is hard to read and he’s got that poker face all throughout, we want him to perform him the way he has. We are playing the same team.” he added.
