Kris Srikkanth's comments on Shreyas Iyer

While commentating for Fancode during the first T20I between West Indies and India, former Indian cricketer Kris Srikkanth described Indian star Shreyas Iyer as “a great batsman against ordinary bowling, an ordinary batsman against great bowling,” adding that Deepak Hooda should have played in his place.

When a Twitter user shared the quote, Indian cricket fans overwhelmingly agreed with Srikkanth’s assessment of the 27-year-old Mumbai batter.

Shreyas Iyer’s struggles against the short ball and raw pace have been widely publicised for some time, and his 4-ball duck to the opposition’s best T20 pacer today only added to his woes.
