Shreyas Iyer, who has captained the Delhi Capitals team, is preparing to leave this team. Shreyas, who made his IPL debut in the year 2015, has been an important part of this team. He had scored a lot of runs for this team, while he had also proved himself as a captain. In the year 2018, when Gautam Gambhir left the captaincy of the team in the middle of the season, Shreyas was given the captaincy of the team. Under his captaincy, Delhis team reached the playoffs twice, including the final of the year 2020.

He was injured just before the start of the league in 2021 and then Rishabh Pant was made the captain of the team for this season. After this, he was back in the UAE leg of this season after getting fit and performing well for the team, but he was not made the captain again. In the year 2021, under the captaincy of Rishabh Pant, Delhis team made it to the playoffs, so it does not seem that Shreyas can be made the captain of this team again. Perhaps for this reason Shreyas Iyer can now leave the team of Delhi. According to a report in The Times of India, he is keen to become the captain and that is why he wants to enter the auction.
Shreyas Iyer is with Team India in Dubai after the end of the UAE leg of IPL 2021 and is the reserve player for the T20 World Cup 2021. At the same time, in IPL 2022, instead of 8, 10 teams will participate and two new teams are Ahmedabad and Lucknow. After joining the auction, he may get a chance to join a new team and he can captain that team.
