Former Indian batter Aakash Chopra has revealed an interesting fact that the Royal Challengers Bangalore side are ready to go all out for Shreyas Iyer in the mega auction for IPL 2022.
High bids will be placed on Shreyas Iyer, reckons Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra mentioned that Ishan Kishan missing out from the marquee list means that Iyer is expected to make the headlines and predicted him to bag at least 15-16 crores.
It has to be noted that Mohammed Shami, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and R Ashwin are the four Indians on the marquee list. “Now Ishan Kishan has been left out, it means money will be saved for Ishan Kishan and high bids will be placed on Shreyas Iyer. It could be 15-16 crores as well, someone told me that RCB has kept 20 crores for Shreyas Iyer,” Chopra told on his Youtube Channel.
“Shreyas Iyer could be a potential captain of KKR or RCB. I don’t think Punjab would be looking at him. The most expensive player, to be very honest, is going to be Shreyas Iyer. In this list, the most expensive will be Iyer because Ishan Kishan is not there. If Ishan was there, there could’ve been a tug of war. Now, they will reserve money for Ishan and money will be splashed out for Iyer,” he added.
