Shreyas Iyer expected to leave Delhi Capitals in search of captaincy Ahead of IPL 2022 – Latest Cricket News

Shreyas Iyer, the star batsman of IPL’s team Delhi Capitals, can leave the team before the 2022 season of the league. Under the captaincy of Iyer, Delhi’s team reached the final of IPL for the first time in the 2020 season. But in the 2021 season, he could not play in the first leg due to injury and young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was given the command of the team in his place. Under Pant’s captaincy, Delhi could not reach the final this time and the team had to face defeat in both qualifier – and qualifier-2 in the playoffs. Iyer did play in the second leg, but he played only as a player. Iyer was made the captain of the Delhi Capitals team in mid-2018 after Gautam Gambhir stepped down as captain.

Two more new teams will play in IPL 2022 and it is believed that Iyer can now become the captain of either of these two teams. That’s why he is going to leave Delhi Capitals. Lucknow and Ahmedabad are the two new IPL teams. According to the report of Times of India, the Delhi Capitals franchise no longer wants to remove Rishabh Pant from the captaincy and for this reason Iyer can leave the team and go to the auction.

If reports are to be believed, Iyer wants to take on the role of leadership and for that reason he may leave Delhi Capitals. After Pant’s captaincy this season, it is believed that Delhi Capitals can retain him as the captain even further. Due to the arrival of two new teams in the form of Ahmedabad and Lucknow in IPL 2022, Iyer may enter the auction after separating himself from Delhi. Under Iyer’s captaincy, Delhi had to face defeat against Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 final.
