“To be completely honest, Shreyas Iyer will be the most expensive player. Because Ishan Kishan isn’t on this list, Iyer will be the most expensive. (In the list marquee players shared by Chopra). If Ishan had been present, there might have been a tug of war. They will now set aside money for Ishan and spend it on Iyer “Chopra stated in a video posted on Koo.
Shreyas could also be a “potential captain” for teams like Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore, according to Chopra.
“Shreyas Iyer is a possible captain for KKR or RCB. I don’t believe Punjab would look at him “He continued.
