Shreyas Santosh Iyer is an Indian cricketer currently captaining the Delhi Capital in the Indian Premier League. A right-handed top-order batsman, Iyer has played one-day internationals and Twenty20 internationals for India’s national cricket team.
He played for India’s under-19 cricket team in the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. He plays for Mumbai in domestic cricket.
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen feels that Shreyas Iyer, who is regarded as an option for the No. 4 slot in India’s ODI squad, should focus on his off-side batting and further improvement on the net.
Speaking about Shreyas on the Star Sports Select dugout, Peterson said: “Shreyas Iyer needs to be more focused on his off-side batting, and he needs to spend more time on the net to hit extra cover. For more practice, remove your left hand. Focus on running the line on the pad and offside”.
He said, “There are exercises you need to practice as a young player, and which will help him as a bowler. Eventually, he will not have to bowl outside the off-stump. He will then be able to play many strikers. ” Be more comfortable.
Recently Shreyas hit a quickfire 62 off 33 balls against Bangladesh in the third and final T20I to help India win the 3-match series 2–1.
Iyer performed brilliantly with the bat and formed a crucial 59-run partnership with KL. Rahul struggled after the early departure of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to stabilize the Indian innings.
Former India cricketer VVS Laxman also said that he was very impressed with the way he secured his credit in the series with Bangladesh. He felt that the way Shreyas put the fort in the final game of the series was impressive.
