Shreyas Iyer’s dismissal to the short ball once again in the ICC World Cup 2023 match against England has left fans on X fuming. Iyer has been struggling with the short ball throughout the tournament, and his latest dismissal has only added to the frustration of the fans.  Iyer was dismissed for just 4 runs off 16 balls in the match against England. He tried to smash a short-of-a-length ball from Chris Woakes, but ended up getting a top edge that was caught by Mark Wood at mid-on.

This is not the first time that Iyer has been dismissed by the short ball in the tournament. He was also dismissed by the short ball in the matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. Iyer’s struggles with the short ball have been a major concern for India. He is one of the team’s key batsmen, and his inability to deal with the short ball is making him a liability.

The Indian team management has so far backed Iyer, but it remains to be seen whether they will continue to do so in light of his recent struggles. Iyer’s struggles with the short ball have been attributed to a number of factors, including his batting stance and his lack of confidence.

Iyer has a relatively open batting stance, which makes him more vulnerable to the short ball. He also has a tendency to shy away from the short ball, which makes it easier for bowlers to dismiss him. Iyer’s lack of confidence has also played a role in his struggles with the short ball. He has been dismissed by the short ball on a number of occasions in recent years, and this has affected his confidence.

Iyer needs to make some technical changes to his batting stance and improve his mental game in order to overcome his struggles with the short ball. If he is unable to do so, he will continue to be a liability for the Indian team. Fans on X have taken to social media to express their frustration with Iyer’s performance. Many are calling for him to be dropped from the team.
