IPL 2022 Auction: Shreyas Iyer could be a potential captain, Akash Chopra

Shreyas Iyer, who was part of the Delhi Capitals in the last season, was released ahead of the auction. Shreyas has also captained the Delhi Capitals side for a few seasons. At a time when some franchises are looking for a captain, Shreyas Iyer could be that guy to go in the auction.

Aakash said that with the leadership skills of Shreyas Iyer, he could be a potential captaincy pick for KKR or RCB. Former Indian cricketer said on his YouTube video, “Shreyas Iyer could be a potential captain of KKR or RCB. I don’t think Punjab would be looking at him.” According to multiple reports, he could be the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Aakash also pointed out three overseas players who could fetch a large amount in the auction. He said Kagiso Rabada, David Warner, and Quinton de Kock could be the most expensive overseas players on the list. However, he added that because Ishan Kishan is not on this list, Iyer will be the one who gets a huge amount of money. He said, 

“The most expensive player, the most expensive player is going to be Shreyas Iyer. In this list, the most expensive will be Iyer because Ishan Kishan is not there. If Ishan was there, there could’ve been a tug of war. Now, they will reserve money for Ishan and money will be splashed out for Iyer. “

He concluded, β€œThe three most expensive overseas players will be Rabada, and then one of Quinton de Kock or David Warner will be the most expensive overseas player as well. There’s a good possibility. β€œ
