Shreyas Iyer made his debut in the Kanpur Test and scored a brilliant half-century
The first day of the first Test match being played against New Zealand in Kanpur was in India’s name. India ended the first day with 258 runs for the loss of four wickets. But India did not get this position easily. Young batsman Shreyas Iyer, playing his first Test match, took him here. Iyer returned unbeaten on the first day after scoring 75 runs. There was a time when the Kiwi bowlers dominated in the second session and dropped big wickets of the team. In such a situation, Iyer took the lead and played a sensible innings. He has so far added 113 runs with Ravindra Jadeja. The way Iyer batted under pressure conditions has impressed many legends. Former India batsman and the next head of the National Cricket Academy VVS. Laxman (VVS Laxman) is also involved in this.
Laxman said that Iyer has not played red ball cricket for a long time and it is very difficult for a young batsman to shift from white ball to red ball. Iyer was a part of India’s T20 World Cup squad and had previously played in the IPL as well. Laxman said that there is a fine line between attacking and playing careless cricket and Iyer understands this line very well.
should get shreyas
Talking to Star Sports, Laxman said, “A lot of credit should be given to Shreyas Iyer for the fact that he played his last first-class match two years ago. The most difficult thing for any young batsman is to shift his mindset from the white ball to the red ball. He did not compromise on any front. He batted the same way he bats for Mumbai or for India A. The way he faced pressure tells his character. He has done the same thing for Delhi Capitals, for India in limited overs. It is good news for India that a youngster has grabbed the opportunity.”
don’t play the same type of cricket
Laxman has said that Iyer is a player who does not play only one type of cricket. He said, “Batsmen like Shreyas Iyer like to play aggressive cricket, the shots he played could have been careless. There is a fine line between playing aggressively and playing carelessly. I think he was aggressive. Whenever Kyle Jameson and Tim Southee bowled good deliveries, he respected them. It’s not like he plays only one type of cricket.”
