Indian Cricket Team’s dashing right-handed batter Shreyas Iyer had a terrific 2022 calendar year. The batter’s stand-out performance was against Bangladesh in the 2nd innings of the 2nd test match where he showed great mental application in tricky conditions and avoided a humiliating upset.

Shreyas Iyer is expected to be the next big thing in World Cricket. The batter is someone who knows how to frustrate the bowlers by rotating the strike and hitting an odd boundary. Shreyas Iyer hasn’t been named against Sri Lanka T20I Series which may be to manage his workload.

Abhishek Nayar on Shreyas Iyer

Abhishek Nayar was having an interaction with the Times of India and was asked about Shreyas Iyer.

“He is very tactical and thinks really hard about the game. He analyzes the game and is someone who not just works on his game but also helps his teammates get better. Post the Rohit Sharma era, Shreyas is a great candidate for the captaincy. He has got all the qualities of being a good leader of the Indian team,” Abhishek Nayar.

“He has been the most consistent batsman for India in ODIs in the past 12-18 months. He is someone who has churned out runs in all conditions. The role Shreyas should be given is to come in and bat at No.4 and take the game from there,” he added.

Conundrum for Management

The management can’t play all the 3 batters: Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul & Shreyas Iyer in a playing 11 as there are reports suggesting that Hardik would be back in the team. Suryakumar Yadav is someone who could take the game away from the opponent quickly with his brisk stroke-play.

It is reported that BCCI has shortlisted 20 players for the ODI World Cup 2023 where they would be monitored. Head Coach Rahul Dravid & Skipper Rohit Sharma should give ample chances to a player before changing the combination as chopping and changing don’t work all the time.
