An historic deal to bring exciting Indian international batsman Shreyas Iyer to Emirates Old Trafford for the 50-over Royal London Cup made headlines around the world, when it was announced by the Club in March 2021.
26-year-old Iyer is a star name of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and captained Delhi Capitals to the final in 2020 as well as representing India over 50 times combined in ODI and T20I cricket.
In total, Iyer has scored over 6,000 One-Day runs across his career so far hitting nine centuries. He averages just short of 45 in ODI cricket with eight fifties and a century to his name, since debuting in 2017.
Iyer will arrive at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday 15 July ahead of the start of the 50 over tournament and will remain with the Red Rose for the duration of the month-long group stage.
After signing for Lancashire, Shreyas said: “Lancashire is a legendary name in English Cricket with a long-standing association with Indian Cricket. I am extremely humbled and honoured to carry the legacy forward of greats like Farokh Engineer, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman at Lancashire."
