IPL Auction: Royal Challengers Bangalore eye ‘captain’ Shreyas Iyer; Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings may bid too | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: India’s limited-overs batter Shreyas Iyer is on the radar of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who’re eyeing him as their next captain, revealed a source tracking the developments closely.
“Post Virat Kohli quitting the RCB captaincy, RCB are really interested in having Iyer as their next captain. Expect them to bid aggressively for the Mumbaikar in next month’s auction in Bangalore,” informed the source.
“The Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings are also expected to eye him in the auction,” he said.
Iyer, as is evident now, wants to be named as the captain of whichever franchise he plays for.
The middle-order batter quit the Delhi Capitals after they appointed Rishabh Pant as their skipper. Post that, he didn’t join Lucknow or Ahmedabad as both franchises weren’t offering him the captaincy.
