Shreyas Iyer was named captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday, ahead of the IPL 2022 season. In the previous IPL mega auction in Bengaluru, KKR paid Rs 12.25 crore for Shreyas. Shreyas has previously captained the Delhi Capitals (DC) franchise, leading them to their first IPL final appearance in the 2020 season. Due to an injury, he was forced to miss the first half of the 2021 season, with Rishabh Pant filling in as captain. Shreyas returned for the season’s final leg in the UAE, but DC chose to keep Pant as captain. Shreyas was not kept by the franchise following that, which led to him being selected by KKR at the auction.

Shreyas takes over as captain from Eoin Morgan, who led KKR to the final of the IPL 2021.

“We are happy first and foremost to have been able to successfully bid for Shreyas in the IPL auction & to have the opportunity for him to lead #TeamKKR,” stated Venky Mysore, KKR’s CEO and MD, while making the news. He has impressed everyone as a top-level batter, and we are convinced that he will flourish as a leader of #TeamKKR.”
This will be a new beginning for the two-time IPL champions, and head coach Brendon McCullum expressed his excitement at the prospect of working closely with Shreyas.

“I am ecstatic to have Shreyas Iyer, one of India’s brightest future leaders, assume the helm at KKR.” “I’ve admired Shreyas’ game and captaincy abilities from afar, and now I’m excited to work closely with him to help KKR achieve the success and style of play we desire,” McCullum said.
“I am incredibly happy to have gotten the opportunity to lead a great team like KKR,” Shreyas Iyer stated after accepting the captaincy of KKR. The IPL as a competition brings together the top players from many countries and cultures, and I am excited to lead this incredible collection of individuals.

I’d want to express my gratitude to KKR’s owners, management, and support staff for allowing me to head this team, and I am convinced that we will discover the proper synergies to achieve the team’s objectives. When it comes to Indian cricket, Kolkata and The Eden Gardens have a long and illustrious history, and I’m looking forward to adding to that legacy and making our fans proud of our team! Jeetbo Korbo Lorbo!”
Under the guidance of former India batsman Gautam Gambhir, KKR won the IPL twice, in 2012 and 2014.
