Shreyas Iyer has to improve his game Wasim Jaffer highlights areas of concern for India batter

The Indian team had to face defeat by 7 wickets even after scoring more than 200 runs in the first T20 match against South Africa. The team now has to play the second match in Cuttack on Sunday. In the next match, some players can be cut from Team India’s playing XI. Among them can also be middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer. Shreyas had scored 36 runs in 27 balls with the help of one four and three sixes in the first T20I. However, in the fielding, he also left a catch on the boundary, due to which the team had to face defeat. Former India batsman Wasim Jaffer, after analyzing Iyer’s game for a long time, has now given him a special advice. Jaffer also told that Shreyas needs to improve in which department of his game.

Jaffer said in a conversation with ESPNcricinfo, ‘You know when Shreyas gets stuck, he moves around the wicket a lot. He wants to get out and reach the off side. You won’t see him hitting a lot of fours or sixes on the fast bowlers. He scored against Tabrez Shamsi and then later Ishan Kishan accepted Keshav Maharaj’s challenge.

Shreyas, 27, hit three sixes and a four against spinners at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. However, against Paes, he scored only 13 runs in 17 balls. Iyer, who was the top scorer for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022, was silent against Paes. Jaffer wants Iyer to score runs against the fast bowlers.

He said, ‘Look at the future, he has to develop some such shots so that he can dominate the fast bowlers also. He is batting in the top 4. It’s not like he comes to bat in the lower order. So here he has to improve his game, especially for boundary hitting against the fast bowlers. His innings could have been a little better. Had he hit a few more boundaries in this innings, 10-15 more would have come.
