Shreyas Iyer Recalls His Run Out In Test Cricket

Shreyas Iyer recalled that he was in the national reckoning back in 2017 but could not make his debut. He revealed that he inflicted a run-out in Test cricket despite having not made his debut in the whites.

“I was there in 2017 itself. But I have got one run out. Even I didn’t make a debut. But still, I got a runout. So that’s like an achievement for me. This was against Australia in Dharamshala. You were also there. Virat had this shoulder issue and I had come as a replacement.”

Ashwin asked the Delhi Capitals skipper, Iyer, if he had been included in the Indian squad after having played a big knock in one of the practice games against the Aussies. Shreyas Iyer concurred that a double hundred against the same opposition had earned him a call-up.

“Yes, double hundred, yeah.”

Iyer Made 38 of 36 balls in the final ODI against Australia and stated that he was happy that Australian ballers were coming up with a plan against him. In the post-match interview, he also acknowledged that there was a difficulty as the change of pitches has also hurdled up almost all the batsman in the line.  Indians are expecting to see the Team Bloom with tremendous winning scores in upcoming matches.
