Speaking on his YouTube channel ahead of the IPL, former Indian opener and cricket analyst Aakash Chopra has said that Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer will be in the running to win the Orange Cap this year. Speaking about the Kolkata Knight Riders team ahead of the season, Chopra said Iyer would be one of the best run-scorers this season.
“Who will be the highest run scorer in the tournament for KKR this year? They have Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Sam Billings and Andre Russell. I think this is a great batting line – up. . ” Aakash Chopra said.
Varun Chakraborty was one of the players retained by the Kolkata Knight Riders before the mega auction this year. Speaking on the occasion, Iyer said that the emperor, who is known as a mysterious spinner, will be the best bowler of the Kolkata Knight Riders this time.
“Who (KKR) is going to take the most wickets for them? This is not a team where a particular bowler takes a lot of wickets. They work together. They have the mysterious spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakraborty. I think the highest number of wickets will go to Emperor Varun. ” Aakash Chopra said and stopped.
