After having a dismal show in the ICC World Cup, India team probably looking forward to bring some changes in the batting order. There is a possibility to see some changes in the upcoming West Indies series where Indian selectors might want to include some youngsters as well and Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer could be the best option in the middle order. He is currently playing for India ‘A’ side in West Indies.
“This is going to be the first time I am going to the West Indies. It’s going to be a good experience for me. The wickets are bit like Indian tracks, the bowlers are going to be challenging there as well,” Shreyas Iyer told bcci.tv.
Iyer has played six ODIs for India where he scored 210 runs at an average of 42 with two fifties against Sri Lanka in the 2017 ODI series. He have been playing well for India ‘A’ as well.
“Hope to be under pressure because I can score more under pressure. I tend to score more when I am under the pump,” he said.
In the 12th edition of Indian Premier League, Iyer scored 463 runs in 16 games with three half-centuries while leading Delhi Capitals.
“I deserve a chance in the Indian team. My performances in the ‘A’ series should count. My goal is to be better than the previous season, I want to grow as an individual and become more mature as a player. I want try bat till the end,” Shreyas Iyer said.
“Kohli is always hungry for runs and you can see it in his batting. I want to see that hunger in myself. While Dhoni is very calm and composed in pressure situations,” he said about Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.
“Rohit obviously is very talented. He’s got so much time when he plays, makes batting look easy. He is someone who is totally different from other batsman. The best seat to watch him bat is from the non-strikers end, right now takes his time. He structures his innings well. If I get all three aspects it will be very helpful for me,” Iyer further added.
