IND vs AUS: I Dont See Shreyas Iyer As A Good Player Of Spin – Ian Chappell Not Impressed With Indian Batter’s Over The Top Approach

Shreyas Iyer

Ian Chappell, the former Australian player, expressed his dissatisfaction with the technique used by the Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer during the third Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test against Australia. The match took place at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore, with Australia emerging victorious by nine wickets on the third day of the game.

During the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, India struggled at a bowling that heavily favored the spin bowlers, resulting in them being bowled out for 109 and 163 in their first and second innings respectively.

Shreyas Iyer, India’s middle-order batsman, was dismissed for a second-ball duck in the first innings by left-arm Matthew Kuhnemann. However, Iyer attacked the spinners in the second innings, hitting Kuhnemann for two sixes and Lyon for two bounds before being caught by Usman Khawaja on a pitch from Mitchell Starc, ending his 26-run slam.

“Many of the Indian bowlers they talk about are (said to be) good spin bowlers. Shreyas Iyer being one. I don’t see that. I think Shreyas Iyer is the type of player who says, “I’m going to get them before they get me.”

“That tends to be more of a cue ball attitude and you can get away with flat pitches. But on those kinds of pitches, that’s not the technique.”

On March 9, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the fourth test match between India and Australia. With the place in the WTC Finals on the line, the team led by Rohit Sharma will be eager to secure a victory.
