This player’s career ended with the West Indies tour, the coach’s trust was breaking continuously for 10 matches
Team India is aiming to win the five-match series by defeating West Indies in the fourth and fifth T20 International cricket matches of the series to be held here for two consecutive days and finalize their team’s preparations for the T20 World Cup to be held later this year. Will hit the ground. But there is also a player in the Indian team who has been a flop in this series so far.
Iyer will have a holiday!
Shreyas Iyer, who is finding it difficult to make it to the T20 World Cup squad, will also be keeping an eye on the performance of Shreyas Iyer in the matches between India and West Indies on Saturday and Sunday. India are currently leading the five-match series 2-1 and would like to win the last two matches in front of the American audience. The one player who will be keeping an eye on the current team of Team India is Shreyas Iyer. On the other hand, Deepak Hooda has made good use of the opportunities given. In such a situation, Iyer’s place in the middle order does not seem to be made. On the other hand, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are set to return to the team in the Asia Cup, so Iyer may have to sit out.
Iyer yearns for a fifty in the last 10 T20Is
Shreyas Iyer has scored zero, 11 and 24 runs in three matches so far and he has been helpless in front of the short-pitched balls of the fast bowlers. Iyer has also got plenty of opportunities in Dravid’s coaching. Despite this, he has failed to maintain his good form in T20 like ODI. Dravid has given Iyer a chance in 9 T20Is in the last two and a half months but despite getting a chance to play in the first 10 overs, he could not hit a fifty even once. If Iyer gets a chance in the last two games, he will have no choice but to do or die.
Eyes will be on Pant, Avesh too
In the third T20 match, Suryakumar Yadav mesmerized everyone with his best shots. This time also his pair can be made with captain Rohit Sharma. In the third match, Rohit had to leave the crease due to back pain. Then they were playing on 11 runs. But after three days of rest, he will be seen again in the field. While Rohit will also look at the performance of his batsmen, his eyes will also be on Rishabh Pant who can entertain the audience in his familiar style.
Team India’s fast bowler Avesh Khan was seen struggling with his form in the last two matches but the team management has no option but to retain him. Harshal Patel is yet to fully recover from a rib injury. It will also be interesting to see whether Kuldeep Yadav gets a chance to play matches in the series. It is also possible that India will enter the match with an extra spinner.
