Born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, Shreyas Iyer is a talented Indian batter who has represented India in all three formats. He got recognition after his exploits with the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. Later, he got a chance to play for India and made his international debut in December 2017 against Sri Lanka.
But with already so many seniors playing in the middle order, he hardly got many chances to prove his worth. However, Iyer kept on playing well in the IPL. Later, he got his chance to crack the test setup in November 2021. He grabbed the opportunity with both hands and smashed a hundred in his debut game.
That caught the eyes of everyone. Iyer is pretty good against the spin and has now become India’s key player in the middle order. He can be the answer to India’s middle-order problem and prove to be a brilliant batter, especially in Indian conditions. But his challenge will be seen when India travels overseas. That will be his test, for sure. Meanwhile, Iyer has been in good touch and is part of the team across formats.
