An aggressive left-hand batsman, Venu has talent to burn although his numbers in the first-class format don't yet reflect his ability. He was purchased for just over 200,000 as an 18 year old, at a bargain price due to concerns over his off-field attitude, but subsequently settled into the high-demand environment at the Green Valley Eagles. His entertaining innings in the 2nd XI initially often ended all too quickly, but over time he learned to temper his aggression. In all, he has scored over 2,000 2nd XI runs at an average over 45 and strike rate more than a run a ball, including 15 fifties and one century.

After his contemporaries in Bakker and Mgijima were introduced to the side in the two seasons before him, Venu was given his own chance in the first-class side in the last round of season 37. He did not look out of place with two starts, and in the ensuing seasons was given consistent opportunities: his more modest numbers compared to the former two were mitigated by his more difficult role of seeing off the new ball. Venu played every game for the first time in season 41, making 912 runs at 35. Now in the prime of his career, he is expected to start pushing his average up towards 40.
