6 6 4 6 6 : Shreyas Iyer shows his Class : Video of Iyer destroying West Indies Bowler

India vs West Indies, 2nd ODI (D/N), Visakhapatnam, Dec 18 2019, West Indies tour of India

Match Result: India won by 107 runs

Player of the Match: Rohit Sharma [159(138)]

Match Report: Batting Blitz from several Indian Batsmen. A phenomenal display of how lethal India is white-ball format. After both the openers, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, scored centuries, the middle order did their job to perfection. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer shown their class and boy was it delightful to watch. If Rohit and KL Rahul scored at a modest strike rate, then we could say that Pant and Iyer made up for it.

Iyer’s brutal batting display of Roston Chase was just an evidence of how Iyer pouches on to weak bowling. What we saw was ruthless aggression from the man of Mumbai. Today, Iyer makes his Test Debut under Rahane. This video is a tribute to how Iyer has grown over the years. And while this might be a white-ball format match, it just signifies that Iyer won’t let go of loose balls even in the red-ball format. Enjoy.

Kuldeep Yadav: “It’s been a perfect day for me. A second one in ODIs, I can’t express it in words. Feeling very happy about it. It’s been tough for me [the last 6-8 months]. I’ve been working very hard. I was struggling for four-five months, but now I’m bowling well, with the perfect pace and with the right variations, so it’s very satisfying for me. There wasn’t much dew today, we knew they’ll come hard at us, so I was just trying to mix my pace up with the variations. It was gripping, so I was looking to turn the ball and vary my pace. I was a bit confused what to bowl for the hat-trick ball, then I thought I had to get in a second slip and bowl a wrong’un on the stumps. Happy that it came off.”

Rohit Sharma | Man of the Match for his 159. “It was a much-needed win, after losing in Chennai. Wanted to get our act together. Started very well, was a crucial partnership upfront, KL batted well, allowed me to take my time. A great batting performance backed up by a good bowling performance. KL is such a talent when you watch him from the opposite end. Running between the wickets wasn’t upto the mark between both of us, but we’ll get used to it soon. We can take a lot of confidence from how we created that partnership.”

Kieron Pollard | West Indies captain: “I thought we gave it away in the last 20 overs with the ball, didn’t execute well. It goes to show in order for them to win, they’ve to score big against us. For us, it’s looking to improve in small areas. We weren’t able to execute our plans like we would’ve liked. Maybe 40-50 runs less, it would’ve been much different.

Credit to them, Rohit and KL batted well, it allowed the guys lower down the order come and score freely. Pooran and Hetmyer – talented youngsters who I’ve spoken about earlier. Hope too has shown consistency in the way he goes about his game. It’s a matter of putting the pieces of the puzzle together, nothing happens overnight. We deserve to go out with a bang, our heads and shoulders are still high. We’ll come back and fight hard in a couple of days.”

Virat Kohli | India captain: “What’s been good is in the last three games, including the one at Wankhede and first two ODIs, we’ve batted well in the first half. Batting second isn’t an issue, we’re one of the top sides, if not the best, while chasing. It’s always good to get 40-50 extra. Rohit and KL were outstanding, the opening partnership set it up. Shreyas and Rishabh, the way they played, was outstanding. The more we get confident in T20s while batting first, the better.

There’s no major 50-over cricket now, so we need to just play fearlessly, which is the need of the hour. As a captain, nice to see the way we’ve batted first after losing the toss. It shows we’re not reliant on the toss, we want to bat oppositions out of the game. We need to field better, we can’t afford to drop catches like we have. Fielding is about wanting the ball, as long as we enjoy ourselves, we’ll be right up there on the field as well.”
