Sunil Gavaskar Thoughts on Shreyas Iyer’s Test Hopes. Sunil Gavaskar, a former India captain, expressed his thoughts on whether he felt.
Former Indian cricket captain Sunil Gavaskar praised batter Shreyas Iyer for his recent heroics in the T20I series against Sri Lanka at home. Gavaskar has praised Iyer’s “confident” approach since his debut Test series against New Zealand last year at home, where he scored a superb century. “Yes, he (Shreyas Iyer) did not play in South Africa because he was not fully fit. According to what I’ve heard, he had a stomach ulcer. That was the reason he wasn’t available for selection “Gavaskar stated this during a discussion on Star Sports.
However, Gavaskar emphasized one point that the team’s management would consider: his batting position.
“However, after his performances in the two Tests against the Kiwis, he will be feeling confident. It’s just a matter of where he’ll fit in, whether at three or five, and that’s something the team’s management will be keeping an eye on “He continued.
Iyer was in spectacular form, scoring 57 not out, 74 not out, and 73 not out in three matches against Sri Lanka.
India will play Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series beginning March 4 in Mohali.
The Mohali Test will be extra special because ex-skipper Virat Kohli will be playing his 100th Test.
The second Test match is set for March 12 at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
