Shreyas Iyer has injured his back. He will not be able to play the one-day series against Australia, on the contrary, there is enough doubt about how many matches he will be able to play in the Indian Premier League. In this situation, the search for the new captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders team had already started. There were several names on the list. Finally, the night management trusted the star cricketer of Bangladesh. And that cricketer of Bangladesh is none other than Liton Kumar Das. Bangladesh played the final match of the three-match T20 series against England on Tuesday. Liton Das scored a brilliant half-century in this match. He played a devastating innings of 73 runs off 56 balls. Along with Bangladesh cricket fans, Kolkata Knight Riders also became very excited after seeing such an innings from Liton’s bat. Because Liton could not score big runs in the last few matches. On top of that, the time of the IPL tournament was approaching. Under these circumstances, Lytton’s comeback would naturally excite Knight officials.
A photo of Bangladesh’s star opener was posted on Kolkata Knight Riders’ Instagram page while appreciating Lytton’s innings. The caption compared this batting performance to fire. Naturally, the picture went viral in no time.
Meanwhile, an Insta user named Aakash Dey posted a purple love emoji in the comment section of the picture along with muscle and fire emojis. Kolkata Knight Riders replied to this comment. It says, ‘our captain’. After this comment, the question started to arise that Liton is being selected as the new captain of the team instead of Shreyas Iyer? Although nothing has been officially announced in this regard so far.
