Shreyas Iyer: Indian selectors have not included Shreyas Iyer in the squad for the T20 series being played against Afghanistan. In such a situation, he is now playing for Mumbai team in Ranji Trophy. He is preparing himself for the England Test series. Even after the match played against Andhra, he practiced batting with the local bowlers in the center wicket nets at the BKC Stadium in Mumbai for a long time. During this, he gave a big statement on his game.
Shreyas Iyer gave this big statement
Iyer was advised by the selectors and the Indian team management to play his game in preparation for the upcoming Test series against England. Iyer told Cricbuzz that no matter what the situation is, I am going to play aggressively. When you bowl negative, when you bowl safe and defensive in the beginning. You want to score runs and you have to take your team to a certain point. That was my mindset and that’s what I got myself into. I was happy (with the performance) regardless of the score. Let us tell you that he had scored a solid 48 runs in the first innings against Andhra.
While talking on the pitch, Iyer further said that to be honest, it was not a training track. But apart from that it was just for my match fitness to stay on the field for as long as possible. That’s mainly what I was focusing on because especially after my injury, it has become difficult for me to stay on the wicket and in the outfield for a long time. So after five years it was great practice for me.
Was a flop in South Africa series
Team India played its last series against South Africa. Shreyas Iyer was a flop in this series. Shreyas Iyer failed to make any impact in this series with scores of 31, 6, 0 and 4. However, Team India has to play the Test series against England at home and Shreyas Iyer’s performance in India has been quite good. He has scored three half-centuries and one century in 11 innings. In such a situation, he may get a chance against England.
