KKR batter Venkatesh Iyer 'proved that his form has returned by scoring a century against the Mumbai Indians.

Iyer completed a century against Mumbai in just 49 balls at the Wankhede.

Iyer is now joint third in a special list of the most sixes in a match for KKR.

In terms of hitting sixes, Iyer has equalled Andre Russell, who did this feat against Rajasthan Royals and Dinesh Karthik in 2019.

Brendon McCullum is on top of this list. In 2008, McCullum hit 13 sixes against Bangalore.

Andre Russell also hit 11 sixes against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2018.

However, Iyer's century was in vain as Mumbai defeated Kolkata by 5 wickets.

The return to form of Ishan Kishan and Suryakmar Yadav from Mumbai Indians gave relief to the team.
