Styris said that what I really like most about Shreyas Iyer 100% is the leadership quality that he has. I think he has every potential to become the Indian captain.
New Delhi, Online Desk. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, in the last few days, Indian cricket fans got to see different captains in every format of cricket. While Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya captained the team in T20, Jasprit Bumrah was tried in the Test against England. Now Shikhar Dhawan will be seen captaining the team in the three-match ODI series against West Indies. At the same time, KL Rahul is currently the vice-captain of the team in the limited format.
Now ahead of the cricket series against West Indies, former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris has backed the team’s star batsman Shreyas Iyer as the future captain of the Indian cricket team. Under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi Capitals team reached the IPL final in the year 2020 and in the 15th season of this league, he captained Kolkata Knight Riders.
Speaking to a news channel, Styris said that 100 percent, what I really like most about Shreyas Iyer is the leadership quality that he has. I think he has every potential to become the Indian captain. That’s why I want to see him in the team as well as give him as many opportunities as possible. At the same time, Styris also talked about Shreyas Iyer’s weakness and said that what I do not like is that there is no secret about Shreyas Iyer.
He further said that he has a real problem with short hair. You will see that many teams attack them with their fast bowlers. If you want, you can attack his body with a bouncer, because I don’t think he has broken it so far. Let us tell you that Shreyas Iyer was also losing his wicket on short balls on the tour of England.
