IPL 2022: Shreyas Iyer is a natural leader, according to Ravi Shastri
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri believes Shreyas Iyer, who has impressed in his first season as Kolkata Knight Riders captain, is a natural leader.
Shreyas has been tasked with leading KKR ahead of the IPL 2022 season, and the Mumbaikar has done a decent job thus far, with his team winning three and losing the same number of games in six appearances. Shreyas, according to Shastri, will only improve as the tournament progresses. “Captaincy comes naturally to Shreyas,” Shastri said on Star Sports. Look at his aggressive captaincy; he doesn’t look like he’s the first person to lead KKR. It appears that he has been captaining them for the past 3 to 4 seasons, as evidenced by his clarity of thought.
“As a batter, his mindset is crystal clear about the type of cricket he needs to play. At the same time, he understands what he needs to do as captain to get his team to the playoffs and win the championship. “I like the way he spoke during the pre- and post-match press conferences because it shows he knows what he’s doing.” He’ll go a long way, I’m sure.” Former West Indies cricketer Ian Bishop believes Shreyas will bounce back from back-to-back losses in the last two games because he has a good mind and the support of some seasoned campaigners.
“I believe Shreyas can regroup his troops and bounce back despite suffering back-to-back defeats.” “Every season after he became captain of the Delhi Capitals, he just made them better and better,” Bishop said.
“He’ll need some time to adjust here (at KKR), but he’ll be surrounded by some seasoned campaigners.” Players like Andre Russell and Sunil Narine have a lot of experience. Coach Brendon McCullum is also a seasoned pro. So I’m confident Shreyas will get the guys up and running.”
