India prodigy batsman Shreyas Iyer has been knocking at the selection doors with his impressive performances. Iyer has been in sublime form while playing for the India A side on the current tour of West Indies. Consequently, the right-handed batsman from Mumbai believes he deserves to get his chance in the national side with the big boys as India A renditions should count.

Iyer, who has a good technique with the bat has been in sublime form. The right-hander scored 77 runs in the first unofficial ODI against West Indies A on a difficult surface. Furthermore, he also scored a good knock of 47 in the third unofficial ODI.

Iyer stated that he loves the challenge to play under pressure. The talented batsman said that he likes to perform when he is put under the pressure.

“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.

“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,” Iyer, who averages 52.18 in first-class cricket, said.

On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer had also led Delhi Capitals with aplomb. Iyer had scored 463 runs for the franchise as they had made their way into the playoff stages after a gap of six years. The right-hander also averages 52.18 in the First-Class format.

Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer wants to take a leaf out of Virat Kohli‘s book. Kohli’s hunger for runs is never satiated and Iyer wants to inculcate the same habit in his game. Iyer also praised the other two stalwarts of Indian cricket, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma.

Iyer wants to follow Virat Kohli’s game.


“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 Kohli and 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 added.

India will play three T20Is, as many ODIs and two Test matches and Iyer is expected to be in the team when selectors will announce the squad on 19th July.
