One of the clean strikers of the ball that India has produced, Shreyas Iyer has turned 28 today i.e. December 6, 2022.
Iyer’s stroke-play technique is based on choosing the line and length sooner and playing through the line of the ball.
Iyer rose through the Under-19 ranks, scoring back-to-back fifties to assist India to finish fifth in the 2014 World Cup playoffs.
He made headlines again when Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) bought him at the 2015 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for INR 2.6 crore. That trust was rewarded handsomely as he scored 439 runs that season and was named IPL Emerging Player of the Year. Within the next six seasons, he became a cornerstone of the team and its captain, scoring over 400 runs four times.
Shreyas has a lot of talent but there always seems to be something omitted in his rhythm that holds him back and prevents him from shining across formats in overseas. Perhaps another strong season with the bat in the IPL, combined with his captaincy, will help him secure a spot permanently in the Indian team.
The current Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain will be looking to join the ranks of the great players who have surfaced from the city of Mumbai, and with the persistence and tenacity he has shown, it is only a matter of time before he takes the massive leap towards becoming a core member of the Indian team.
Shreyas Iyer is well-known for his effortless batting and is well-liked by the youth due to his social media presence. The Indian batter has done well to gain a national fan base and has also performed in a spectacular fashion on the commercial pitch, which has influenced his brand value. Let’s take a look at Iyer’s endorsements, net worth, and charitable contributions:
Shreyas Iyer’s net worth is estimated to be around INR 53 crore. This massive sum was amassed through his Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) salaries, IPL contracts, and endorsement deals.
The Indian batter owns a 2618-square-foot apartment in Mumbai. The flat is in the same society as Virat Kohli and is worth more than INR 11.85 crore.
Iyer is a car enthusiast, owning a Lamborghini Huracan worth INR 3.75 crore, an Audi S5, a Mercedes-AMG G 63 4Matic SUV worth INR 2.28 crore, a BMW, and a Hyundai i20 Sportz.
Throughout the years, Shreyas Iyer inked numerous endorsement deals. The list includes some big brands like boAt, Google Pixel, Ultrahuman, Manyavar, BharatPe, FanCraze, Mutual Funds Sahi Hai, Red Bull, Fresca Juices, Britannia, Myprotein, CEAT, and Dream11.
There’s not much about him in this section because the player prefers to keep it quiet, but a year ago, he played a charity football match alongside Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Arjun Kapoor.
The right-handed batter also donated his worn gloves, which he used when he scored his first international century to charity.
