Throughout the Test series against Bangladesh, Shreyas Iyer has maintained his strong batting performance. He contributed 86 runs to India’s first innings total of 404/10 in the first Test, which was completed on Saturday. The game was subsequently won by Team India by 188 runs. Iyer previously concluded with 109 runs at an average of 36.33 in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Bangladesh, placing him seventh among all scorers.

Iyer has often been in and out of the starting XI in both Tests and ODIs due to the presence of veterans in Team India. Mohammad Kaif, a former Indian cricketer, noticed his most recent successes for the Men in Blue in all forms and praised the 28-year-old while giving a review of the first Test match on Sony Sports. While emphasizing Iyer’s ability, Kaif drew a parallel to the great MS Dhoni.

“We often discuss how Dhoni doesn’t look well but yet manages to score runs and win games. Shreyas Iyer is in the same class as you and is a skilled runner. Despite having a flaw where he goes out when playing the pull shot, he has a strong record in 2022 “said Kaif.

“He is scoring in each game and is in fantastic form. To score in the early innings is significant. Because of his innings, India gained a significant advantage. He is a complete hitter who plays excellent drives and utilizes his feet as well “Added he.

The former India star commented on Iyer’s evident difficulty while playing the short ball “Although every hitter has some kind of weakness, Shreyas Iyer has problems with bouncers. Although he will have to cope with it forever and for the rest of his life, what he has accomplished is commendable.”

In the meanwhile, Team India already leads the two-match series 1-0 after defeating Bangladesh in the first Test. India’s triumph has also helped the country move up to second place in the rankings for the World Test Championship (WTC) 2022–2023.
