Not Dhoni Or Virat Kohli but this player is Shreyas Iyer’s favorite Captain

The newly appointed captain of KKR, Shreyas Iyer comes in support of KL Rahul, the Lucknow supergiants captain. He praised KL Rahul’s leadership and calm nature on the field.

“It was nice to play under him. Firstly, he is an outstanding player. The confidence he carries on the field and in the team meetings, the support that he provides to the players it great,”

Iyer said on Red Bull Cricket Room on Clubhouse

“He’s got a very calm demeanour and his on-field decision making is very instinctive. I really enjoyed playing under him.” 

During the ODI series against South Africa,  KL Rahul handed the ball to Iyer in the third ODI. Shreyas Iyer grabbed this opportunity with both hands and Bowled 3 overs spending a total of 21 runs in his spell.

“Also, he gave me three overs of bowling, which none of the captains previously had done. So yeah, he’s my favourite captain!,”

KL Rahul will lead Lucknow SuperGiants in 2022. Prior to that he was leading Punjab Kings and he was good with the bat but unfortunately, his team was not able to win the title. However, as per analyst Lucknow super joints have better chances to lift the trophy in their maiden IPL tournament.
