Shreyas Iyer ‘born born’ leader: Hussey
Hussey said during the virtual press conference on Wednesday, Shreyas is a born leader. He is a very respected player. I know Pat Cummins very well. He will prove to be a good vice-captain and he will lead from the front too.
He said, but the way Shreyas has captained Delhi in the past. He has a very good understanding of cricket, and knows how to play the game according to the circumstances. I think appointing him as captain is a good decision by Brendon (McCullum) and the KKR management.

How has Shreyas performed in IPL?
Shreyas is playing IPL since 2015. He has scored 2375 runs in 87 IPL matches at an average of 31.66. His highest score is 96 runs. Iyer was associated with the Delhi team till now. But now he will be seen wearing the KKR jersey on the field.
Iyer led the Delhi team brilliantly in the 2020 season of IPL. Where the team reached the final but lost to Mumbai Indians. That year, Iyer scored 519 runs in 17 matches at an impressive average of 24.60, including an unbeaten 88 against KKR. But unfortunately a shoulder injury limited Iyer’s participation the next year and the DC brought forward Rishabh Pant as their captain and this year Delhi did not retain him and Iyer will now lead the side of KKR.
Shreyas Iyer’s ‘Silver’
The last few months were definitely difficult for Iyer. But now their good time has come. Because money was rained on him earlier in the auction and now he will be seen taking over the command of KKR.
