With just eleven days left, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is the only team who is yet to announce their skipper as Indian middle-order batter and earlier named KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer continues to remain doubtful for the upcoming season.


Although, the team features stars like Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Nitish Rana and many others, the franchise in a post captioned “This shot will sweep you off your feet!” dropped a big hint on who could replace Iyer at the helm. The video post featured Rinku Singh playing a sweep shot. To a user who replied with “Game changer Rinku”, the franchise quickly commented “our skipper”.

However, this comment of the Kolkata-based franchise wasn’t there for long as they quickly deleted it dropping a big hint.


Talking about the IPL 2023, the Knight Riders will lock horns with Punjab Kings to open their campaign on April 1 at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.  They will then play their next match in the tournament at their home stadium in Eden Gardens on April 6, when they face Royal Challengers Bangalore.
