Shreyas Iyer has emerged as an answer to India’s troubles at number 4. Ever since he took that batting position, India has found a new life in an otherwise listless middle order. Playing 18 ODIs and 22 T20Is, the rising batting sensation has managed to average 49.86 and 27.80 respectively.
In these handful games, he played crucial knocks for the men in blue, highlighting the value he adds to the unit. Not only that, he earlier scored 463 runs in 16 innings of 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) to help his team qualify for the play-offs of the T20 event.
Recently, the 25-year old conducted a question and answer session on his Twitter handle to interact with his fans. On being questioned about his batting role models, Shreyas was quick to respond as he named Sachin Tendulkar, Kevin Pietersen, AB de Villiers, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ricky Ponting as his batting heroes. With a promising start to his International career, fans anticipate a lot of good things from the aggressive batsman.
