On Saturday, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) CEO Venky Mysore, after the addition of Pat Cummins and Shreyas Iyer to the squad, said that the decision regarding the captaincy will be taken by the coach and the think-tank of the team.

Kolkata Knight Riders spent INR 7.25 crore to acquire the services of the Australian Test captain Cummins and then they were involved in a bidding war with Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Titans, Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals to include middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer in the squad.

Also, they were successful in picking Iyer after spending INR 12.25 crore at the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) CEO Venky Mysore said that he was delighted with the players acquired by the franchise in the first session of the auction. He added that he is excited to see Cummins coming back to the team and Iyer joining the squad.

First of all, delighted with how the first session went for us. To get back Pat Cummins at that price, actually, we thought he would go at a higher price so we are delighted with that.

“Obviously, Shreyas is a quality Indian batter, so that’s fantastic and we are very excited,” said Mysore while replying to an ANI query during a virtual press conference.

Meanwhile, he was asked if Shreyas will possibly be the captain of the team in the upcoming season to which he replied that they have two solid captaincy choices and the final decision will be taken by the coach and think-tank.

 “That is the decision the coach and think-tank will take. We need to digest the activities of the auction. Between Cummins and Shreyas, you have two solid options for captaincy,” he said.
