IND vs SL: Shreyas Iyer Reveals His Best Batting Position Following Superb Series Against Sri Lanka

Written by Rohit Pawar

Shreyas Iyer relishes finishing off games, but, on the back of his excellent run in the T20Is against Sri Lanka, he has expressed his desire to bat at No.3, the place which is normally reserved for Virat Kohli.

Shreyas, who got a chance in the side after Kohli was given a bio-bubble rest following the second T20I against the West Indies, cracked three fifties against Sri Lanka to ensure a 3-0 sweep for the hosts.

“I’m not keeping any expectations from myself nor from the team coaches because if you see the competition in our team, it’s immense.

“Every individual is capable of winning you games. Personally I want to enjoy each and every moment and opportunity, which I’ve been provided with.

“I like to finish off the games and that’s like my mindset whenever I go onto the pitch,” he said.

Given a choice however, Shreyas added that he would prefer batting at No 3.

“Obviously in this format, top-three is the only place where you can pace your innings pretty well. Otherwise if you bat down the order you can’t give yourself time you need to start going from ball one.
