Shreyas or Cummins, who will be the captain of the next season? KKR informed

76

The Knights have not returned last season’s captain Eoin Morgan this year. KKR did not bid for Morgan in the auction either. Naturally, there was speculation about who would be the new leader of the Knights. Even before the auction, it was heard that the Knights were thinking of Shreyas Iyer as the new leader. KKR’s team management had contacted him before the auction.

The Knights bought the former leader of Delhi Capitals for Tk 12 crore 25 lakh, leaving others behind in the auction. At that time, many assumed that Shreyasai would be the captain of KKR. However, Pat Cummins’ name was being leaked from some quarters. Pat is the captain of the Australian Test team at the moment. His game is also guaranteed in the first XI of the Knights. Cummins has a lot more experience than Shreyas. But KKR relied on Shreyas, not Cummins, at the last minute.
