In the last couple of matches, the youngster Shreyas Iyer has come out as a finisher in T20Is. Also, he has remarkably handled middle-order responsibility. After his performance in New Zealand, he has surely cemented his place at No.4. Moreover, India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour has accepted that he is the match-winner for Team India.

In the first T20I against New Zealand, he maturely played the game after India lost the wickets of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He took off the pressure from Team India. In his powerful knock, he scored 58 runs in 29 balls and struck three sixes and five fours.

Similarly, in the second game, he stitched an 86-run partnership with KL Rahul to chase the 133 run target set by the Black Caps in Auckland.

Vikram Rathour heaps praise on Shreyas Iyer:

In the press conference ahead of the third T20I, Rathour not only hailed Iyer’s batting style but also applauded the attitude of the Mumbai lad.

He further admitted that he has the quality to be a match-winner.

“Apart from having those (batting) skills, I think the mindset is amazing. He (Iyer) believes he is a big player, and he is, without any doubt. He genuinely believes that he is a match-winner and he is here to stay. And that mindset I think helps him, that is the biggest advantage he has,” he said.

From 2019, Iyer has the most sixes by any Indian in T20 cricket — a stunning 67 maximums, which is the seventh-best among all T20 players in the world.

The attacking batsman is surely in the plans for the T20 World Cup which is scheduled in Australia in October.

Meanwhile, the Men in Blue will play the third T20I match against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday (29th January).
