IPL 2022: Shreyas Iyer Reveals His Favourite Position To Bat

IPL 2022: Shreyas Iyer, the new captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders, has revealed his favourite batting position. However, he has said that he is willing to take on any duty for his franchise if necessary. Iyer was in excellent batting form during the just-finished Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka. He had carried that momentum into the Test series as well. He has already shown great adaptability by performing well at a variety of batting positions for the Indian squad.

Since taking over as captain of his previous team, the Delhi Capitals, in 2018, the 27-year-old has played a pivotal part in the team’s success. he lead them to the playoffs in each of the two seasons (2019 and 2020). He was not retained ahead of the blockbuster auction in 2022. After a furious bidding battle, the Kolkata Knight Riders were able to get his services for a record INR 12.25 crore.

According to the circumstances, the roles change: Shreyas Iyer ahead of IPL 2022

Iyer said that the anchor role might change from time to time. He stressed the significance of completing games and making it count whenever the batter comes to the crease. Iyer went on to say that every player would be held accountable for winning games for their respective teams. He confessed that he prefers to bat at No. 3, where he has been significantly more successful than at any other position.

“It’s impossible to represent oneself as an anchor in a general sense. It may also vary from one person to another. On any given day, I can be a dominating force, and there may be another player who can fill in as an anchor. Situations and duties might shift depending on the circumstances. You can’t always rely on a single player to carry the load throughout an innings. You need to go all out and make sure that you win the game for the team, Iyer said in a video broadcast on the KKR YouTube channel.

“In essence, the duty must be shared by all members of the team. To go out there and win the game without relying on the efforts of others. Personally, I believe No. 3 is my position since I like batting at that position. I have been batting at that position for a long time. I’ve been really adaptable. Wherever the team wants me to bat, I’m quite comfortable doing so and I’m eager to explore,”Shreyas Iyer said.
