Aakash Chopra on Shreyas Iyer
“Shreyas Iyer – good player, scored a century on debut against New Zealand and scored runs in the second innings as well. But he , the Test batter, still has a lot to prove in my opinion. He played very well in Bangladesh also. He can play spin extremely well, there is no doubt about that. However, there are two things that might define his career – his game against the short ball. And second against the moving ball – when the ball is pitched up and it swings, and the other is the bouncer,”. Chopra said in a video shared on his YouTube channel
Aakash Chopra further said that
“Until he gets proficient in both of these things, it is even difficult to say whether his Test career will flourish or not. So the captain of the Indian Test team – too early to say. In my opinion, Shreyas Iyer, the permanent member of the Indian Test side, there is time for that.
A verdict cannot be passed so early because he hasn’t nailed the format yet. There is no doubt that the guy plays amazingly well in ODIs but in Test cricket, despite the runs. I think it will take him some time to solidify his place in this format. We will talk about the captaincy later,” he added.
