Kanpur. Team India delayed in declaring the innings on the fourth day. Regarding this, Shreyas Iyer says that the bowlers were not getting much help from the pitch. But he expressed confidence that the spinners will be able to get us the victory on the last day. India declared the second innings (India vs New Zealand Test Series) for 234 runs for 7 wickets. In this way New Zealand got the target of 284 runs. Due to bad light, New Zealand got a chance to bat only 4 overs in the second innings on the fourth day. Due to this questions are being raised on the management of Team India.
R Ashwin, however, got the team off to a good start by dismissing Will Young. New Zealand have scored 4 runs for one wicket. Shreyas Iyer said after the end of the game, ‘To be honest, there was not much movement on the wicket. We needed a competitive score. Probably scored close to 275 to 280 runs. Iyer made a brilliant Test debut after scoring a century in the first innings, scoring 65 runs in the second innings.
We trust our spin bowlers
He said, ‘The talk was about making a competitive score and I think it is a really good score. We have excellent spinners. So hopefully we can finish the work tomorrow. We have spin power. Shreyas Iyer said that we have to trust the spinners and we know that they can keep them under pressure on the last day. The Mumbai batsman, however, said that the team would have been satisfied with a score of more than 250 runs.
Played the same innings 7 years ago
He said, ‘I think a lead of more than 250 would have been enough on this wicket. Lucky we got more edge than this. The team managed to take a good lead in the second innings with a score of 51 runs for five wickets. He had to face similar situations 7 years ago in the same stadium in the Ranji Trophy ‘Do or Die’ match against Uttar Pradesh. He had barely pulled out the team at that time and also on Sunday.
Shreyas Iyer said, ‘I have lived in these conditions before, but not with the Indian team. I used to do this in Ranji matches. The idea was to play session by session in this. I was aware that I am the first Indian to score a century and a half-century. He said that in the end we have to win the match and that is the most important thing for me.
