Shreyas Iyer Takes the IPL Trophy to Every Corner: "Taking You Everywhere I go" (X)

Shreyas Iyer is elated after Kolkata Knight Riders secured victory in IPL 2024, triumphing over Sunrisers Hyderabad in a dominant final at Chepauk. This win holds special significance for KKR, marking their third IPL title since their previous victory in 2014 under Gautam Gambhir’s captaincy. Iyer now joins Gambhir as only the second captain to lead KKR to IPL success.

At the post-match presentation, Iyer celebrated the win passionately with his teammates, clearly still revelling in the moment. He even shared a photo on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), where he can be seen enjoying time in the pool while clutching the IPL trophy, captioning it, “Taking you everywhere I go.”

This image may evoke memories of a viral commercial featuring Iyer and Jasprit Bumrah during the 2024 IPL league stage. In the advertisement, Iyer was depicted relaxing in a swimming pool when he noticed a duck, with Bumrah humorously suggesting befriending it, symbolizing getting dismissed for zero in cricket.

Despite his IPL success, Iyer will not participate in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup as the BCCI terminated his contract due to concerns about his fitness, citing insufficient participation in domestic cricket. Prior to the IPL, Iyer had contributed to Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy victory, showcasing his cricketing prowess at various levels.
