Shreyas Iyer is one of the most successful batsmen of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Thanks to his aggressive attitude and superb hand-eye coordination, Iyer has earned a comparison with none other than Virender Sehwag.
When Delhi Capitals (DC) picked him for Rs 2.6 crores in 2015, he became the most expensive uncapped player of that IPL season. Iyer repaid the faith by hammering a mammoth 439 runs in IPL 2015. Along with Rishabh Pant, he is the primary reason for the turnaround in DC’s IPL fortunes. Except for IPL 2016, when he struggled with form, Iyer has always shone with the bat in the IPL.
That’s why DC appointed him as their captain in 2018 when Gautam Gambhir decided to step down. Under Iyer’s leadership, DC started performing a lot better. From 8th position on the points-table in 2018, it moved to 3rd position in 2019 and finished as runner-up in IPL 2020.
Due to a shoulder injury, Iyer had to miss the first half of IPL 2021. In his absence, DC appointed Pant as the captain. Even after Iyer made a comeback, Pant was retained as the captain. That was a setback for Iyer, but things turned in his favor when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) grabbed him by paying Rs 12.25 crores in IPL 2022 mega auctions. KKR appointed Iyer as their captain in IPL 2022. Shreyas Iyer led KKR from the front in his debut series as the captain of the purple franchise. He scored 401 runs in IPL 2022. KKR retained him for Rs 12.25 crores in IPL 2023.
