He was dismissed for 5 of 8 as India lost their way a bit. Uthappa admitted that Shreyas looked out of place.
“For me, the fact that Shreyas Iyer playing in a position that he is not comfortable. With kind of just showed up in that innings. He is the kind of batter who likes to take his time a little bit initially and then he gets going. Unfortunately for him, he finds himself in a newish kind of position, where he has to finish a game,” Robin Uthappa said.
“Venkatesh Iyer began well but… That’s how he is, he is going to go in there and try to express himself. But India almost made a meal out of that chase,” Uthappa said.

Pant took a step forward and smashed the Kiwi pacer for four runs. In addition, to get the squad over the finish line. In prior media contacts, Rohit Sharma made it plain. And the responsibilities that the players play in their respective franchises. The national teams are completely dissimilar. He claimed that the cricketers are capable of adapting.
“When players who perform in IPL and domestic come into international cricket and you ask them to do something different, it is always tricks. The response can be that you’re playing for your country so you have to adapt and find a role. It is easier said than done, particularly when guys are used to batting. At the opening position or No. 3,” Uthappa said.
