“He is going Suresh Raina way,” netizens slam Shreyas Iyer’s dismissals in Eng v Ind, 5th Test

Shreya Iyer hasn’t been able to perform in the ongoing Eng v Ind, 5th Test. Iyer failed to perform in both the innings of the ongoing Test, scoring just 19 & 15 runs in the outings.


Indian team in the ongoing rescheduled Test against England is heading strongly after Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah gleamed in the swinging conditions with the bat. Later, the Indian bowling lineup comprising Mohammed Shami, skipper Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur, elevated the bowling performance by putting England in a spot of bother. England finished the first inning with 284-10, falling 132 runs behind the Indian inning. The Indian batting looked sharp and meant business from the first inning itself.

However, Shreyas Iyer, who debuted with a hundred against New Zealand, is having a tough time against England in the Test match. Shreyas Iyer has failed to finish big in both innings. Iyer scored 19 & 15 runs in the two outings. Netizens are leaving no stone unturned to question the batsman’s tactic against short balls. Iyer got out against short spells in both the innings.

Netizens are comparing Suresh Raina with Shreyas Iyer who comparatively faced a similar struggle against the short-pitch deliveries. Suresh Raina was left exposed to short-pitched deliveries in later part of his career.
