KKR coach said- I do not think much when the players are out, but Shreyas Iyer…

Kolkata. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) head coach Chandrakant Pandit is hopeful that Shreyas Iyer will return to the team very soon and in his absence, Nitish Rana will do well as captain in IPL 2023. He said that as a coach, I do not think much when the players are out. Iyer has been ruled out of the initial matches of the T20 league due to recurring back pain. He could not play in the Test series against Australia due to this problem. The new season of T20 league is going to start from 31 March. The first match is to be held between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings.

Chandrakant Pandit achieved good success as a coach in domestic cricket. Apart from Vidarbha, he also gave the title of Ranji Trophy to Madhya Pradesh. But he said a big thing about IPL. Talking to the media, he said that challenges are everywhere. IPL is also a challenge, but it is a different kind of challenge. After domestic cricket, working with experienced players from different countries is a different kind of challenge. But hopefully we will do well together.

Iyer’s absence will have an impact
Chandrakant Pandit said that whatever little cricket I have played or given coaching. I don’t give much importance to things like player’s unavailability in the team. Iyer’s absence will make a difference because he is important for us. This is really unfortunate. He said that we are hoping that Shreyas will return very soon. Nitish Rana has a lot of IPL experience and has been a part of KKR for the last 5 seasons.

Not only Rohit Sharma, Kohli also will not appear in the entire match of IPL! The reason is clear, Virat played maximum 2500+ balls

He said that when we select the players and give responsibility to the players, then we see who is capable. Nitish has been with KKR for a long time and his domestic record is also good. It meets most of the criteria. Chandrakant Pandit said that I am sure he can handle the role. We do not see whether someone is eligible or not. Every player has different skills. After considering these things, we are confident about our decision.
