Team India has been searching for a reliable No. 4 batsman for quite some time now. In the last few years and they have tried too many players for this place like Ambati Rayudu, Yuvraj Singh, Dinesh Karthik, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant. But no one has given that type of confidence. But Shreyas Iyer is a good option at number 4 for India. Recently former Indian player Mohammed Kaif said that India will not get a better player than Shreyas Iyer at No.4.
Shreyas Iyer made his international debut way back in 2017, he got very limited chances in his first two years in international cricket. However, he has become a regular member of the team after last year’s World Cup and he is doing well for team India.
“I am a huge fan of Shreyas Iyer. Firstly, he has come out of domestic cricket, having played many years there. He has not got an opportunity too quickly for India. He has played IPL for a number of years, scored many runs, then only his name came. His name has come at the right time because he is hungry. He is bored of playing domestic cricket and wants to play for India,” Mohammed Kaif spoke of Iyer to Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel.
“He is mentally very sorted, has a great understanding of his game and his role. He doesn’t get angry easily and thinks a lot before speaking. He has gained a lot from captaining in the IPL because you learn to take responsibility. Since he has become captain, he has become a better player. India will not get a better player than Shreyas Iyer at No.4,” Kaif said.
Shreyas Iyer is also leading IPL franchise Delhi Capitals from last two season. In his captaincy, Delhi Capitals reached in the play-offs of the Indian premier League 2019.
