‘Iyer bhau ka aaj kal time shi chl raha hai’ – Fans react as KKR re-appoints Shreyas Iyer as captain after missing a season due to injury

It’s worth noting that former KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir is back with the franchise too.

Shreyas Iyer

In a major announcement, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have officially appointed Shreyas Iyer as their captain for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The franchise shared the news with fans on its official social media platform, confirming Iyer’s return as the team leader.

Additionally, Nitish Rana, who captained KKR in Iyer’s absence, has been designated as the vice-captain for IPL 2024. Shreyas Iyer previously took over the captaincy from Dinesh Karthik ahead of IPL 2022, showcasing his leadership skills. However, the season did not unfold as expected, with Iyer facing challenges in maintaining consistent batting form.

In 2022, Iyer scored 401 runs at an average of 30.85 and a strike rate of 134.56, contributing to KKR’s seventh-place finish on the points table with six wins in fourteen matches. Despite the ups and downs during his captaincy stint in IPL 2022, KKR has shown confidence in Iyer’s leadership abilities by entrusting him with the captain’s role once again.

Can Shreyas Iyer, along with Gautam Gambhir, change KKR’s fate?

The franchise aims to leverage his experience and cricket insight to chart a successful course in the upcoming season. Iyer had to miss the 2023 season due to an injury, leading to Nitish Rana taking charge as the captain. Unfortunately, KKR faced a similar fate in IPL 2023, with the team finishing the season with six wins in fourteen matches under Rana’s leadership.

As Shreyas Iyer returns to lead the Kolkata Knight Riders, fans eagerly anticipate his impact on the team’s performance and the strategic direction he brings to the table. The franchise is hopeful that Iyer’s experience and batting prowess will play a pivotal role in shaping KKR’s fortunes in the upcoming edition of the IPL. It’s worth noting that former KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir is back with the franchise too.

Here is how fans react to KKR’s decision to re-appoint Shreyas Iyer:
