Indian cricket team has clean swept Sri Lanka in the three-match T20I series at home. It was a dominating performance from Rohit Sharma’s men in all three matches. Before this, the Indian team also clean swept West Indies in ODIs and T20Is as well. Talking about the Sri Lanka series, one name that resonates, again and again, is Shreyas Iyer who was at his peak in this series against Sri Lanka. The middle-order batsman was in so exceptional form that he scored half-centuries in all the three matches he played. He was named man of the match in two matches and was also been named Man of the series. Another Indian batsman and commentator Dinesh Karthik is so happy to see Shreyas bat and feels that he has shown why he is so well rated.
“He has had to fight his way into the team. When he’s got a consistent run, he’s shown why he is Shreyas Iyer and why he is so well rated. He is such a good leader,” Dinesh Karthik said during a discussion on Cricbuzz.
Dinesh Karthik also feels that Shreyas Iyer is a good leader on the pitch. After KKR bought Shreyas for 12.5 crores, he was been named as the captain of the team a few days back. The former captain of the KKR team, Dinesh Karthik thinks the current captain Shreyas Iyer will do good as a leader.
