Shreyas Iyer announced Kolkata Knight Riders captain for IPL 2022 upcoming season
Shreyas Iyer new captain: Kolkata Knight Riders officially announced Shreyas Iyer as the captain of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) next season on Twitter. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bought the right-handed batsman at a mega auction for Rs 12.25 crore after a fierce bidding war with the Delhi Capitals, the Gujarat Titans, and the Lucknow Super Giants.
Shreyas Iyer, who has been part of Delhi Capital since 2015, was not spared by the franchise last year. In 2022 Shreyas Iyer is leading the KKR team as they look to get their hands on the coveted IPL trophy for the third time.
“I would like to thank the owners, management, and support staff of KKR for allowing me to lead this team and I am confident that we will find the right synergies to achieve the team’s goals.” Head coach Brendon McCullum said Iyer is excited to be fielding him.
Shreyas Iyer new captain: Kolkata Knight Riders were runner-up after failing to beat CSK in the final last year. Ian Morgan, who led the franchise last year, will not be part of the IPL this year because nobody bid him during the mega auction. Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, and Varun Chakraborty are the players who have retained KKR at auction.
“I am very honored to have the opportunity to lead a prestigious team like KKR. IPL as a tournament brings together the best players from different countries and cultures and I look forward to leading this group of great talent.” Shreyas Iyer said.
