After playing few matches for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first two editions of the Indian T20 league, Iqbal proved his mettle in the third season. He was signed once again for the fourth season in 2011. A thinking bowler, a good lower-order batsman and a very sharp fielder make him a good team player. Looking at these qualities, Rajasthan bought him for Rs. 65 lakhs in the 2014 season.
