Sourav Ganguly Praises Shreyas Iyer: Star batsman of Team India. Shreyas Iyer got a chance to debut in the Kanpur Test against New Zealand. And this player created a stir in the first test match itself. Century in debut test. After this, a half-century in the second innings of the match. Shreyas Iyer has staked his claim for the fifth position by batting brilliantly.
Shreyas Iyer has been selected for the Test series on the South Africa tour. But at which number he will play, this decision will be taken by Kohli and the management. However, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is pleased with Shreyas Iyer’s brilliant batting. And he has praised Iyer fiercely. Also, Ganguly has said that Iyer’s real Test will be on the South Africa tour.
Sourav Ganguly said in an interview.
‘I think Shreyas’s batting average in first-class cricket has been above 50 for a long time. I saw his first-class average, about 52, for the last ten years. You cannot be a normal batsman with this average. Sometimes you must get a chance to showcase your talent at the international level’.
‘I am thrilled to see the way Shreyas performed in his very first Test. But his real Test will be when he goes to South Africa. There is pace and bounce when you go to South Africa and England. Hopefully, Shreyas will stand up to those conditions and do well.
Let us inform you that Shreyas Iyer has raised the concern of the team management and captain Kohli by performing brilliantly. The question is whether Rahane will play at number five or Shreyas Iyer? Or the team combination will be something else. Rahane is going through poor form. The vice-captaincy has also been taken away from him. Even in the home series against New Zealand, Rahane’s bat did not score runs. In such a situation, it is believed that for Rahane, a South Africa tour is like do or die because Shreyas Iyer is ready to take his place.
Let us inform you that India’s South Africa tour starts on 26 December. The first test match will be played in Johannesburg. After the Test series, a three-match ODI series will also be played.
