Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Shreyas Iyer has failed to make it to the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 to be played in USA and West Indies despite leading his franchise to the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Iyer has impressed all and sundry with his captaincy and batting skills so far in the ongoing edition of the cash-rich league.

Ahead of the IPL 2024 summit clash, Iyer said that he wasn’t affected by missing out on the T20 World Cup squad, due to his role as KKR captain. 

“It has been fantastic, touchwood. Yeah, we won the Qualifier. I was also part of the team and contributed in the Qualifier. It gives me immense pleasure of playing so well in the last few months and so coming and being part of such an amazing squad,” said Iyer during an interaction.

“So all I did was stay in the present and not think about what is going to happen with me and not worry about the selection process or anything. I just wanted to come and participate, to play to the best of my abilities,” the prolific batter added.
