Iyer who is one of the reasons behind the rapid success of the DC franchise for many seasons may his remarkable captaincy skills can work for KKR too.

Despite being packed with full of experience and emerging players in KKR, Iyer has been given this opportunity just because of his calmness and his situation absorbing skills are what KKR needs the most.
