Sunil Narine and Nitish Rana are the front-runners to be the KKR captain for IPL 2023 – Reports
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is around the corner and Kolkata Knight Riders have already suffered a major blow. As per the various media reports their skipper Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the tournament.
The batter suffered a back injury during the fifth game of the Test series against Australia and was ruled out of the ODI series as well. His injury seems to be much worse than expected as it is learned that he will be out of action for 3-6 months.
His absence will come as a major blow for the team as they will lose a quality skipper and a batter. However, as per the latest reports in ESPNCricinfo, it is learned that in his absence either of Sunil Narine or Nitish Rana will be handed the leadership responsibility.
Although there are no official confirmation but if the reports emerge to be true, it’ll be a surprise for many as both Rana and Narine have very less captaincy experience. The IPL 2023 will kick start from 31st March and KKR will open their campaign against Punjab Kings on 1st April.

Nitish or Shardul should be the captain. I have never seen Narine talking with his teammates during the match. https://t.co/TTpGxl5JEG

Sunil Narine was a disaster at ILT20 for ADKR. Hope they don’t repeat the same mistake with KKR. #IPL2023 https://t.co/33ARjzuizx

He might not play all matches so dunno how feasible but Southee being an international captain already should be the first choice https://t.co/BGnwycNjPI
