KKR captain Shreyas Iyer is running against time to get fitter by half-way stage of IPL 2023 and be available for the World Test Championship (WTC 2023) final.
The absence of Shreyas is a major setback for KKR, who have appointed Nitish Rana as the interim captain. Shreyas’s absence will make a difference since he is vital, but this is very terrible.
