How will Rohit Sharma play Iyer now? (PC-PTI)
Team India has become addicted to winning in the World Cup 2023. After defeating Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, now Team India defeated the defending champion England in a one-sided manner. In the match played in Lucknow on Sunday, Team India had scored only 229 runs but despite this the Indian team won the match by 100 runs. The England team collapsed for just 129 runs. However, during this victory, a player of Team India got into big trouble. The problem is so big that now it seems difficult for him to stay in the playing eleven.
This player is none other than Shreyas Iyer. Whose performance in this World Cup has been very average. Against England, Iyer crossed the limits of poor play. Iyer was able to score only 4 runs on the Lucknow pitch and he struggled for 16 balls. Iyer has scored 134 runs in 6 matches so far in this tournament. His strike rate is also 84. However, the problem here is not his figures but the manner in which Iyer was out is a matter of concern.
Iyer has problem with short ball
Shreyas Iyer was also out on short ball against England. This is the ball in front of which Iyer faces a lot of problems and the same has been seen in this World Cup also. Shreyas was out on a short ball against New Zealand. If a batsman is out in the same manner on the same ball, then the opponents take advantage of it and this is a matter of concern for the team. However, Team India has the option of Iyer. If Iyer is made to sit out, Ishan Kishan can play his role.
Ishan Kishan will play in the middle order
Ishan Kishan has shown his talent in the middle order. This player has shown his strength in the middle order in the Asia Cup. Another important thing is that Ishan is a left handed batsman and this will also benefit Team India. Besides, this player also plays the short ball well and has no problem against spin-pace. It is clear that you will not be surprised if Team India tries Ishan Kishan in the middle order in the coming matches. How long will Rohit Sharma be able to trust Shreyas Iyer?
