After cementing No. 4 batting slot in LOIs for Team India, young Shreyas Iyer has his eyes set on his dream. Iyer, after success in limited-overs cricket, hoping for a call-up in ‘pinnacle of the game’ Test cricket.
“I’ve grown up playing red-ball cricket. Once that is imbibed in you as a cricketer, it is never going to go away. No cricketer, who has spent a good amount of time playing red-ball cricket will ever quit aspiring to play Test cricket. It’s a different feeling. 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? But let me reiterate this: If you’re going to play at the highest level, it’s about what the team wants and the concerns that need to be addressed at that given moment in time,” said Iyer.
