Shreyas Iyer can lead team India in future but need to work on short balls feels scott styris


Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris feels Shreyas Iyer should be included in the playing XI for the ODI series against West Indies despite his poor form. Styris sees the future captain of Team India in Shreyas Iyer, but he also talked about a shortcoming of this batsman, which is now well known. Shreyas gifts his wicket to the opposing team on the short ball.

During a conversation on Sports 18’s show ‘Sports Over the Top’, Styris spoke openly about Shreyas Iyer. He said, ‘I find the best thing about Shreyas Iyer is the leadership quality in him. I think in the coming time he can take over the command of Team India and one thing which I do not know and which is no longer a secret.

Styris said, ‘For his leadership quality, I would like to give him as many opportunities as possible in Team India. But he has trouble playing short balls. You must have seen that as soon as Shreyas comes to the crease, the opposing team brings the fast bowlers on the attack and they lose wickets on the short ball. He is a lot like Suresh Raina, the opposing team knows how to attack him. Shreyas will have to find a solution to this problem himself. If he overcomes this problem, then I will keep him at the forefront of Team India.
