Sheryas Iyer is the leading runs scorer in the 2015/2016 Ranji Trophy season with 930 runs. He had a session with the master blaster before Ranji season which has been of immense help who is being touted as next big thing in Indian cricket.
“When Sachin sir dropped in at the Mumbai nets this season, I asked him about a specific technical problem that I was encountering. I told him that while going back and across, my shoulder tends to open up and I wanted to correct it. He advised me corrective measures. The most important of them was to stay on the front foot,” Shreyas, who is the leading run-scorer in Ranji Trophy, said.
“Before the start of the season, I was made aware about how the second season for a player becomes more important after a good first season. I had scored over 800 runs in my debut season and I had set a target of 1000 runs for this season. I knew bowlers will study and analyse my game after the first season and accordingly I worked on my game. I am happy that I have had a good season so far,” the 21-year-old said.
“Rahul sir told me that I should always concentrate on the process. Focus on improving everyday, learning something new. Initially, I was a bit sad that I got a few starts for India A (couple of 40’s) but could not convert it. But then I realised that I cannot sit back and think about what’s gone. Then my focus shifted to Ranji Trophy. I worked hard on my game, spoke to my coach Amre sir (Praveen Amre). Since he has seen me from childhood, he knows my game inside out,” the confident youngster said.
Sheryas has been the backbone of the Mumbai team this season. He has played some special knocks especially the double century against Punjab will be most memorable one.
