Irfan Pathan on Shreyas Iyer: Team India’s young batsman Shreyas Iyer has not proved to be very effective in the T20 series against South Africa. He has so far managed to collect 94 runs in 4 matches at a batting average of just 23.50. On most of the occasions, he has been seen struggling against the fast bowlers. He has also been giving his wicket to the fast bowlers. In such a situation, former Team India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has advised him to remove this shortcoming as soon as possible.

While discussing Star Sports, Irfan has said, ‘He (Shreyas Iyer) has been seen struggling against speed not only in this series but in the few matches before that. In IPL, we saw that whenever balls with a speed of more than 140 were thrown in front of him, he was seen in trouble. His strike rate against fast bowlers has also come down. He is playing the spinners very well, he is batting with ease even on deliveries below 140 kmph, but at 140+ he is struggling. They need to improve in this area of ‚Äč‚Äčtheir game. Especially when the fast ball comes close to his shoulders, he has to try to play it well.

Wasim Jaffer has also given this advice to Shreyas
Before Irfan Pathan, former Test cricketer Wasim Jaffer has also advised Shreyas to improve his game against fast bowlers. During a conversation on Cricinfo, Jaffer had said, ‘Shreyas Iyer has not been seen hitting many fours or sixes against fast bowlers. He has to develop some such shots so that he can dominate the fast bowlers. He bats in the top 4, so he has to improve his game. He has to hit the boundaries against the fast bowlers.
