IPL 2022 Update: In the next season of IPL, many teams will take the field with the new captain. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is also included among them. KKR surprised everyone by deciding not to retain Eoin Morgan, who took charge of the team last season. Now the team is looking for a new captain. According to the reports, young player Shreyas Iyer can get the command of the team. In the auction to be held on February 12 and 13, KKR can bet big on Iyer. Iyer has captained Delhi in many seasons. He has good experience of captaincy in IPL.
Can get captaincy because of this
If the Kolkata team buys Shreyas Iyer in the auction and makes the captain, then it will be a big advantage for him. Apart from the captain, the team will also get a strong batsman who can play an important role in winning the team by playing in the middle order. Iyer’s previous figures are tremendous and under his captaincy, the Delhi team performed brilliantly. At present, Andre Russell is also a substitute for the captain for Kolkata, but Russell’s fitness can become a problem.
