Shreyas Iyer credits Rohit Sharma’s ‘pep talk’ for a win against Bangladesh

After losing the first game of the three-match series, India recorded a strong and commendable comeback to win the T20I series against Bangladesh 2-1. In the final game, there was a plethora of action and at one point, Bangladesh looked in a good position to chase a total of 174 to record history against the men in blue.

However, the blue team turned it all around beautifully as Bangladesh lost the last 8 wickets for just 34 runs to go down. Indian top-order batsman Shreyas Iyer, after the game, opened up about how India was able to turn the tables. The 24-year old cricketer didn’t shy away from crediting his skipper Rohit Sharma for the memorable victory.

Sharing his views on the game, Shreyas said that when Bangladesh was cruising towards victory, the opening batsman called all of his players inside the circle to give them a pep talk. 

This, in the opinion of the Mumbai born, motivated the unit to a great extent, thus helping them to get over the pressure and execute their plans properly.
