In the months gone by, Shreyas Iyer has simply ruled the roost in the Indian domestic scene. In the recently concluded Ranji Trophy which Mumbai won, Iyer was the leading run-getter and played a decisive part in Mumbai’s emphatic win. Iyer was recently interviewed by Cricket Country, and he stated that he was ready to represent the Indian team. Below, are the excerpts from the interview.

After scoring over 2,300 runs in just a couple of seasons, do you feel that an India call-up is just round the corner? Have you set yourself a timeframe inside which you want to break into the Indian team?

I think they should get me now into the team, but it is not my job to think about it. My aim is to keep performing well, keep doing my job; let the selectors do their jobs. I will let the bat do the talking rather than me speaking about this topic.

There are some who believe you should have been selected for ICC World T20. Were you expecting to find a place in the team?

I do not want to say anything about this. Even if I was picked, I would still have scored these runs. I am performing really nice. Maybe it was better to gain experience for another year then get in the team.

Do you think a good performance in the Irani Trophy will go a long way in achieving the India dream?

It is just another game for me. I will not be thinking about the selection process. I do not score runs thinking that I would be selected. So, I will once again look to get a good start and make it big.
