Playing Test cricket is a dream: Shreyas Iyer

“I’ve grown up playing red-ball cricket. Once that is imbibed in you as a cricketer, it is never going to go away.

It may sound like a cliche, but playing Test cricket is a dream and I hope it comes true soon,” said Iyer.

“Yes, I do feel comfortable now batting at No 4. I’ve done that for a while now and it’s beginning to feel like it’s the space where I belong – so why not?
