Ind vs Aus: Shreyas Iyer fails to replicate his IPL batting form during IND vs AUS ODI series
Earlier, Shreyas Iyer flopped badly in ODI series. The Delhi Capitals skipper scored 2, 38 and 19 runs respectively in three ODIs against Australia. During this time, he could not hit a single six. Seeing his form, the team management decided to include Manish Pandey in the playing XI by dropping Iyer for the first T20 match.
However, due to Manish Pandey’s injury in the second T20, Iyer was once again included in the playing XI but he completely missed the opportunity. After Virat Kohli’s dismissal, Iyer came to the crease and supported Hardik Pandya till the end of the run chase.
After Shikhar Dhawan’s 36-ball 52-run knock, India defeated Australia, courtesy Hardik Pandya’s aggressive batting. All-rounder Pandya scored 42 runs off 22 balls with 3 fours and 2 sixes. During his innings, Pandya’s strike rate was 190.90.
