He has all the shots in the book, a typical Mumbai batsman – when on song, he’s one of the most watchable batsman in the Indian domestic scene. While his records speak for himself, his tenacity to throw away starts have become an epidemic. A star performer for Mumbai, Iyer’s tendency to throw away starts has been his undoing – as far as national selection is concerned.
Shreyas’ indifferent form in the IPL hasn’t helped things either. An also-ran until the 2016 season, his transfer to Delhi Daredevils worked wonders for the young batsman. Under the guidance of Rahul Dravid, Iyer ironed out the small deficiencies in his game and returned a better batsman. Good returns followed in the 2016-17 home season and his form merited a call-up to the Indian team – as a cover for Indian captain Virat Kohli.
Iyer then followed it up with a fine show in the 2017 edition of the IPL and finished as one of the top performers for the Daredevils, with 338 runs. With age by his side and spots opening up in India’s middle-order, Iyer remains in contention for a bigger role with the national team.
