Shreyas Iyer will captain his 50th IPL match against Delhi Capitals in the 41st match of the current season tonight, becoming himself the tenth captain to do so. He’ll also break a record by being the first player to captain in 50 IPL games without captaining an international match.

With 248 runs in eight games for the KKR, Shreyas Iyer is the team’s leading scorer.

Shreyas’ fierce batting style was recognized in his first IPL season, when he hit 439 runs.

When Shreyas led Kolkata Knight Riders won their first three IPL 2022 matches, they appeared to be a team that had figured out their batting and bowling strategies. However, Kolkata’s early confidence has faded, and they presently lie in eighth place in the points table after four consecutive losses.

Shreyas, on the other hand, is optimistic about a comeback, believing that the two-time winners will be “unstoppable as a team” once they find their pace.

When the Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders face in the Indian Premier League 2022 match at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, both teams will be looking to get their seasons back on course.
