“I am extremely honoured to have gotten the opportunity to lead a prestigious team like Kolkata.

I would like to thank the owners, management and support staff of Kolkata for giving me the opportunity to lead this team,” said Shreyas Iyer.

“I am confident that we will find the right synergies to achieve the team’s goals. Kolkata and The Eden Gardens have a very rich history when it comes to Indian cricket and I look forward to contributing to this rich history and making our fans proud of us as a team! Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo!,” he added.
