Kolkata Knight Riders' new captain Shreyas Iyer has revealed his favorite batting position ahead of IPL 2022.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ new captain Shreyas Iyer has revealed his favorite batting position ahead of IPL 2022, although he is open to bay anywhere to contribute for his franchise.

Iyer was in good touch during the recently concluded T20I series against Sri Lanka and continued scoring in the Tests as well.

The 27-year was one of the key players for Delhi Capitals since taking up the captaincy in 2018 and took the franchise to plays offs in 2019 and 2020.

The right-handed batter was not retained and was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for an INR 12.25 crore after an intense bidding war.

He revealed his favorite batting position as No.3, where he has been impactful.

“You can’t play just one role. I can be a power-hitter on a given day, and some other players can play an anchor role. The situation can change depending on the conditions. If it’s your day, you need to make sure that you win matches for the team,” Iyer told in a video posted by KKR’s YouTube Channel.

“I feel comfortable at No.3 batting position as I have been batting at that position for a long time. However, I am flexible and can contribute where the team wants,” he added.
