In the mega auction, KKR spent a whopping INR 12.25 crore to bring Shreyas on the team. Several people believe Shreyas, who is on a run in his recent outings, will light up the event. In fact, in his last three T20I appearances, he has smashed undefeated half-centuries.

Shreyas has all it needs being an absolute superstar of the game, according to the veteran New Zealand captain. The KKR coach further stated that their new leader can be named ‘Player of the Decade’ for the team.

Shreyas Iyer has the same aggressive mindset that he did when he was on the field:

McCullum went on to say that the new captain has the same aggressive mindset as he did when he was on the field. “We both possess a core understanding of how we like to see the match played,” he remarked, “which is that you gather a bunch of players around, create a vision, and then get the players to play the game enthusiastically, and try and embrace those who are around you.”

“For what his game is about and what he’s been able to achieve, he’s already extremely well-respected around the world.” His prime is unquestionably ahead of him. “I can’t wait to work with him because I believe he has the potential to be a true game superstar,” he continued.
