IND vs ENG: Shreyas Iyer’s coach spoiled the game, all the work was done with one gesture!, watch video


New Delhi. Shreyas Iyer failed to play a big innings in the rescheduled Test match being played against England at Edgbaston. He scored 15 runs in the first innings, then in the second innings his car could not go beyond 19 runs. Matthew Potts dismissed him. Once again Iyer’s weakness weighed heavily on him and this weakness was not disclosed by anyone but his coach. Now you would like to know that why would Iyer’s coach do this? So let us lift the veil from this secret as well.

In IPL 2022, Iyer captained Kolkata Knight Riders and the coach of the team was none other than Brendon McCullum, who has recently become the head coach of England. In such a situation, he already knew Iyer’s weakness against the short ball. Simply, he informed his bowlers by making a gesture and then Iyer got caught in the trap made by the English bowlers.

Shreyas Iyer came out to bat on the fourth day after the dismissal of Cheteshwar Pujara. As soon as he came to play, the camera turned towards England’s dressing room and stopped at Coach McCullum sitting on the balcony. Meanwhile, McCullum was pointing towards the ground with his hand, which was caught on camera. Actually, he was asking the English bowlers to use short balls against Iyer.

Since then, English bowlers bowled Iyer mostly short. However, Iyer also adopted the strategy of playing shots instead of ducking or defending these balls. In the beginning, it was also seen to be useful for Iyer. He also hit the first four of his innings on a similar short ball. He hit 2 fours in 3 balls from Matthew Potts. However, later Iyer was caught by James Anderson in an attempt to play a pull shot off a short ball from Potts and thus his innings came to an end.
