IPL : Shreyas Iyer Could be Potential Captain for RCB or KKR, Says Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra has named the most expensive player in marquee list, that could potentially be a captain for KKR or RCB.

The IPL 2022 mega auction is scheduled to take place on February 12- 13 in Bengaluru with 10 teams on the list. BCCI has confirmed that 590 players name have been listed, who will go under the hammer during the mega auction, and further named a 10-player marquee list that will kick off the opening session.

The marquee list features four Indian players- R Ashwin , Mohammed Shami, Shikhar Dhawan, and Shreyas Iyer; and the former Indian opener Aakash Chopra think that Shreyas can potentially be the most expensive of all in the absence of Ishan Kishan in the marquee list.

“Shreyas Iyer could be a potential captain of KKR or RCB. I don’t think Punjab would be looking at him,” Chopra said on his official YouTube channel.

“The most expensive player, to be very honest, is going to be Shreyas Iyer. In this list, the most expensive will be Iyer because Ishan Kishan is not there. If Ishan was there, there could’ve been a tug of war. Now, they will reserve money for Ishan and money will be splashed out for Iyer,” siad Chopra.

“The three most expensive overseas players will be Rabada, and then one of Quinton de Kock or David Warner will be the most expensive overseas player as well. There’s a good possibility.”

Shreyas has been a part of the Delhi Capitals (DC) since 2015 and also led the franchise in three seasons (2018, 19 and 2020). Shreyas was out of the 2021 due to his shoulder injury and played under the captaincy of Rishab Pant during the second phase in the United Arab Emirates.
