Ravi Shastri Backs Shreyas Iyer To Bat At Number 4

Ravi Shastri Backs Shreyas Iyer To Bat At Number 4


Ravi Shastri, in an interview to The Times of India, said, “One of the areas we concentrated on over the last two years was to blood as many youngsters as possible. Shreyas Iyer, for instance, he is going to stay at No. 4.”

Iyer, after the first match of the ODI series washed out, played solid knocks of 71 and 65 in the second and third matches, making his case stronger for a longer stint in the ODI side. He however batted at number 5 in the three-match series.

Pant, who was Virat Kohli’s favourite number 4, failed badly. He scored 20 runs in the second ODI while departed for a golden duck in the final match.

Notably, India clinched the three-match T20I series 3-0 before emerging victorious in the ODI series 2-0 against the West Indies.

India will take on West Indies in the first Test of the two-match series, beginning on August 22 in Antigua.
