The source also added that Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings are also expected to bid for him aggressively. Not long back, reports suggested that Iyer wants to be the captain of whichever team. And if that is true, all three franchises would be looking for captains.

Earlier reports suggested that new IPL franchises – Ahmedabad and Lucknow – had approached Iyer but things did not work out as he was not offered the captaincy there.

“Iyer is set to be the hottest property this IPL Auction. Multiple franchises are seeing him as the leader of their squad. His performance, leadership skills will make them bid big for Iyer”, source tracking IPL Auctions very closely.

Iyer would not be new to the role of leadership as he has led Delhi Capitals in the past. In 87 IPL matches, Iyer has scored 2375 Runs at a strike rate of 124.

He has played seven IPL seasons so far and has managed to earn Rs 35.8 Cr in total salary.
