Shreyas Iyer is a swagger: Irfan Pathan

“This guy has the swag. When this boy is in form, it is enjoyable to watch. The big shots he plays, he doesn’t stay at one spot, but despite that, the balance he generates, it is his own ability. I like the non-looker six he hits the most. The two sixes he hit off the slower ones – one-off Karunaratne and later off Chameera. He answered the critics with his bat, you don’t need to answer with your tongue”

said Pathan in a conversation on Star Sports.

Shreyas has scored 662 runs in 34 T20Is so far, with an average of 30.09 and a strike rate of 137.06. Meanwhile, former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar, who was also on the panel, believes the 27-year-old can be Kohli’s ideal back-up in T20Is.

“The bench is growing in strength. Shreyas is consistently sent to bat at No. 3 in the order. So, God forbid, if Virat Kohli is injure in a match, I believe he can become a very good option at No. 3, and that is probably where the team management has their sights set on Shreyas Iyer,” Bangar said in an interview with Star Sports.
