Indian batter Shreyas Iyer waltzed his way back into the Indian team in style as he scored 204 runs in 3 matches against Sri Lankans, essentially cementing his place in the T20I side. Speaking about the 27-year-old, former cricketer Mohammad Kaif was ecstatic about the future of the Mumbaikar.

Notably, Iyer also scored a century on his Test debut against New Zealand. He has already put his hat into the ring for a middle-order slot after the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara were shown the door.

In T20Is, he was given a chance to play at No.3 and he has made the slot his own. Iyer had scores of 57*, 74*, and 73* in the three games against Sri Lanka, winning the Player of the Series award. As expected, Iyer was the talk of the town and his future is bright at the moment.

100 on Test debut, IPL captaincy, T20 match winner for India. He’s just 27, seen the lows, learnt from mistakes. Great future ahead. Iyer, what A Year. @ShreyasIyer15,” Kaif tweeted.

“Anything he touches turns to gold” – Mohammad Kaif on Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma has taken India to a new level after being given the captaincy role. He was always known to be an excellent captain having led Mumbai Indians to four titles but the kind of impact he has had on the Indian team was unexpected, to say the least.

Be careful to shake hands with Rohit Sharma these days. Anything he touches turns to gold. Shreyas at No.3, rotation of players, bowling changed. Every move, is a masterstroke. #Goldentouch @ImRo45,” Kaif had tweeted.

Under Rohit, India has already won three T20I series – one each against New Zealand, West Indies, and Sri Lanka. He is yet to lose a match after taking over as the full-time white-ball captain.
