Shoiab Akhtar Thinks Shreyash Iyer Will Be The Future Captain Of India

Virat Kohli is no longer the captain of the Indian cricket team. After Virat Kohli, the captaincy in all three formats is currently on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma is handling the captaincy of India, but BCCI is looking for his deputy, who can be given the captaincy of the Indian team in future.

Shreyas Iyer is staking a claim on a future captaincy

After Rohit Sharma, in the race for captaincy, BCCI is looking at 3 players as alternatives, which are Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah. All these three players are being considered as the captaincy option in the future of Team India.

KL Rahul has also captained the Indian team, while Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah have been seen handling the vice-captaincy so far. In such a situation, the BCCI is looking toward the future captain somewhere.


Shoaib Akhtar considers Shreyas Iyer the future captain

Even though BCCI has looked into these 3 options, among them, there is another player who is making a claim, Shreyas Iyer, who is currently captaining Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.

Kolkata Knight Riders are performing strongly under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, in view of this, former Pakistan great fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has considered Shreyas Iyer as the biggest contender for the future captain of the Indian team. And at the same time, he believes that India’s selectors will be forced to think about it.

Iyer strong contender for India’s captaincy

Shoaib Akhtar while talking to Sports Keeda said that “Iyer is not only creating pressure in the IPL with his captaincy but is also presenting his claim for the captaincy of the Indian team strongly. He is not only looking to cement his place in the Indian team but also looking to captain the team, he is proving himself.”

Akhtar further added that “Iyer should continue to score and lead the team and I am sure he can become a big brand in the times to come. Rahane should take advantage of the opportunities provided by KKR and not give up. Hope he looks great.”
