Shreyas Iyer : I was pleased with my goal but dissatisfied with how I was rejected.
In the second ODI against the West Indies on Sunday in Port of Spain, Shreyas Iyer scored 63 runs off 71 balls while batting at No. 3, and his performance was crucial to India’s two-wicket victory that secured the series. He makes an effort, but he is not happy with it.
Although I was pleased with my result, I was not happy with how I was treated. I could have easily led the group through. Unfortunately, I lost my wicket as I was putting up the total. Hopefully, I can play better and hit a hundred in the next game, said Shreyas, who scored 54 in the first game of the series.
“It’s incredibly fortunate to reach fifty (back-to-back), but given my strong start, I should have converted to 100. In international cricket, these openings are rare; therefore, turning as many fifties into hundreds is quite advantageous. The 27-year-old continued, “I thought today (Sunday) was a fantastic opportunity to achieve that.
Three formats are a lot: De Kock
Quinton de Kock of South Africa claims that if more matches are added to the already-hectic calendar of the sport, it will become more challenging for players to participate in all three formats. Due to the demanding cricket schedule, England all-rounder Ben Stokes has announced his retirement from ODIs.
their ODI against England was postponed due to rain on Sunday, De Kock told media in Headingley, “It’s going to start being tough for players – three formats are a lot, and it looks like more games are happening across the calendar.” “Players must make their own choices, and I’m pleased for them if they decide to play in all three formats. Nevertheless, men must make their own decisions. The 29-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman stated in December that he was quitting Test cricket to spend more time with his family.
I’ve been forced to participate in a few leagues, but that’s my fault, said, De Kock. “I’m excited to do it.” I’m progressively approaching an age when I need to consider where I want to go in my profession, but it’s still a sacrifice. I’m content as long as I can complete things at my leisure. De Kock concurred that there was a risk that more players would stop representing their country and migrate to franchise cricket in an interview with The Telegraph during the IPL. “Yes, I do believe that… In instances like this, I believe anyone would act the same way. Compared to what your country offers you, it can be difficult to say “no” to some of the proposed contracts. It follows that this will occur naturally. That’s how things will develop.
