Shreyas Iyer has refused to join Ahmedabad and Lucknow, the two new franchises for IPL 2022.

Shreyas Iyer is likely to start a bidding war between the two most successful IPL franchise. Five-time champions Mumbai Indians and two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders are interested in Iyer, considering his captaincy experience.

According to Sports Today, Mumbai want to prepare Shreyas as a possible replacement for Rohit Sharma. KKR, on the other hand, are looking for a new skipper after releasing Eoin Morgan ahead of mega auction.

The report further claimed that Mumbai are leading the race as Iyer is from Mumbai, and he would like to be a part of the Rohit Sharma-led team for IPL 2022.

The right-handed batter was not retained by Delhi Capitals.
