Team India batsman, Shreyas Iyer displayed impressive outings with his sword in the T20I series versus Sri Lanka which has been concluded recently. In the 3-match series, India demolished the opponents and extended their unbeaten streak in 12 games in the T20I format. Here in this article, we have mentioned views of Shreyas Iyer On Batting At No 3.
For his uninterrupted half-century, Iyer was awarded Player of the Match for the 2nd attempt. He was also awarded Player of the Series after scoring 204 runs with 3 half-centuries at a strike rate of 174.36. In addition, he wasn’t even made out from any of the 3 games.
I like to finish off the games and that’s like my mindset: Shreyas
“Obviously in this format, top-three is the only place where you can pace your innings pretty well. Otherwise, if you bat down the order you can’t give yourself the time you need to start going from ball one. So yeah, if I had to say the best number to bat for me personally, it’s obviously No. 3,” Iyer said in an Interaction.
Shreyas Iyer on batting at no 3 played across the series and has stated that this is his preferred striking spot, particularly in the shorter format. In T20Is, he believes that batsmen in the top 3 positions have more time to regulate their innings effectively, whereas batters middle and lower order really don’t.
Shreyas Iyer is presently not a favored choice in India’s T20I playing XI. Because players like Virat Kohli as well as Suryakumar Yadav did not play in this series, he was given an opportunity. Furthermore, with this sort of play, he’s given the team’s officials a lot of headaches right now. He, too, is aware of the team’s characteristics and recognizes that the competition is tough at the time.
“I’m not keeping any expectations from myself nor from the team coaches because if you see the competition in our team, it’s immense. Every individual is capable of winning you games. Personally, I want to enjoy each and every moment and opportunity, which I’ve been provided with. I like to finish off the games and that’s like my mindset whenever I go onto the pitch,” Iyer further said.
Furthermore, Shreyas Iyer will be captaining Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) side in the closely approaching 2022 Indian Premier League’s (IPL) – 15th edition. It will be most exciting to witness how the former Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper, who was been replaced with Rishabh Pant admist of the season, will make his reach in the new edition of the gala tournament. KKR will be happy for the latter’s come back to his form at the best, which appeared in the recent outings.
