<p>Iyer’s back injury, which occurred during the Test match against Australia in Ahmedabad, caused him to miss the 2023 Indian Premier League. In his absence, Nitish Rana guided KKR in the 2023 Indian Premier regular, however despite finishing eighth in the regular stage, the club was unable to make it to the playoffs.</p>
<p>The return of Shreyas Iyer to the IPL in 2024 is a huge boost for the Kolkata Knight Riders, who are hoping to snap a 10-year title drought. Nitish Rana has been named the team’s vice-captain in the interim.</p>
<p>After being named KKR captain, Shreyas Iyer expressed gratitude for Nitish Rana’s guidance during the 2023 Indian Premier League.</p>
<p>“I think we had a number of difficulties during the previous season, one of which being my injury-related absence. In addition to stepping in for me, Nitish did a fantastic job leading by example. That KKR has chosen him as Vice Captain makes me very happy. It will undoubtedly reinforce the leadership group, he said in a statement.</p>
<p>Gautam Gambhir’s return as the Kolkata Knight Riders’ coach for the 2024 Indian Premier League was also announced. Before being cut by KKR before the 2018 Indian Premier League season, Gambhir guided the team to two championships in 2012 and 2014.</p>

<p>2018 saw Shreyas Iyer start his IPL career with the Delhi Daredevils, who are now the Delhi Capitals. With 411 runs in 11 games that season, the 29-year-old was the team’s second-highest run scorer.</p>
<p>The Delhi Capitals were put under Iyer’s leadership before the 2019 Indian Premier League. DC won the playoff game and advanced to the postseason for the first time since 2012. They came in second place behind the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the end of the season.</p>
<p>Shreyas Iyer played for the Delhi Capitals in 2021, when they made their first-ever IPL final appearance. He was released by DC before the 2022 Indian Premier League and acquired as a captain by the Kolkata Knight Riders for an incredible Rs. 12.25 crore.</p>
<p>The Kolkata Knight Riders placed sixth in the league stage when Iyer was their manager.</p>
<p>Shreyas Iyer has scored 2776 runs at an average of 31.55 in 101 IPL matches, including 19 half-centuries.</p>
