India’s middle-order batsman, Shreyas Iyer has revealed his five role models who have inspired him in his cricketing journey so far. Iyer has been in fine form recently and looks like a permanent find for the number four slot in the Indian team.
Team India has long been facing a problem of a permanent number four, especially in the ODIs. This, in fact, became one of the key reasons behind India’s exit from the 2019 World Cup.
Indian players are in quarantine at the moment as the country has gone into a state of lockdown for the next 21 days. This allows them to interact with their fans through social media.
