Shreya’s Iyer was the new player of the season for IPL 2015. Since then, Iyer has come a long way. He had also taken on management responsibilities for Delhi Capitals from IPL 2018 onwards. Here’s a look at the 3 best IPL franchises that will have him in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction:
Kolkata Knight Riders want Shreyas Iyer:
The Kolkata Knight Riders are looking for a skipper in Eoin Morgan’s absence. It also happens that Kolkata has always had an amazing young Indian batman of the middle order. They have previously had Manoj Tiwary, Lakshmiratan Shukla, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Kartik. This record makes Iyer’s chances stronger. Shreyas Iyer can also take on the captaincy of the Knight Riders. Iyer can play spin well and will love hitting the Eden Gardens pitch.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will also be looking at Shreyas Iyer. With a tennis elbow problem, there is a cloud of concern over the availability of Kane Williamson. So Sunrisers will look at Iyer as a substitute. They must also fill the void in Manish Pandey. Shreyas is a more attacking and more technically sound batsman and can fit the role really well. He has experience leading a young team. Sunrisers can also use Iyer as a float. Shreyas can take a charge of the spinners when needed and can accelerate the running speed.
Ahmedabad Franchise wants Shreyas Iyer:
The most likely choice for the Ahmedabad franchise is Shreyas Iyer. He is ready to become captain of a newly created fresh team. Ahmedabad will seek to connect their team with a young and talented player and that is exactly what Shreyas offers. Iyer also brings a huge fan base with him. Shreya Iyer and his presence on social media have gained popularity. The Ahmedabad wicket, which has favored pacers, will suit Iyer very well. The ball will come on the bat, and that’s what all Mumbai batsmen love.
