Shreyas Iyer...why is he over looked????

Recommended Posts

Only 23+ years of age. Played 5 inns scored 210 runs @ 42 avg: and 96+ str: rate. Performed brilliantly well in India and fairly well in SAF for a youngster.Yet he is not playing in ENG... What type of selection policy is this??????

There are much better players out their then him

he has brilliant stats and age in his side too. And has performed more than up to the mark expected of a newbie as of now in one dayers.

That should be the criteria. If looks are the criteria then Steve Waugh,Border,Chanderpaul,Greme Smith,Steven Smith etc etc wouldn't have even got a chance to play international cricket.

Pant, samson, gill , rahul all are way better

Rayudu has been a 46 avg: first class player.and his one day stats are hugely boosted by  large share of scores against minnows.But Iyer's case is entirely different

iyer also scored runs against Lanka 

SL is not BAN or ZIM.  BTW  who told you SL is poor????  they whitewashed  AUS & PAK  .SAF is struggling badly against them in the current test. Just because they lost badly to only one team India doesn't make them a bad team at all. and Shreyas  thoroughly deserves his chances. So is  Mayank, Hanuma Vihari & even Karun nair.

Who told u SL is good, they are utter crap n have been for sometime 

Aus ,Sa are struggling against them at their home, we whitewashed them at their home

 

Shreyas doesnt have that quality , others are way better and soon they ll go ahead. Btw Shreyad failed on A-tour so he isnt helping his case either

iyer deserves to be part of the rotation. people have biases and that is the problem.

the problem of  viewing 'aesthetically  looking pleasing to the eyes' or having tight technique' as the basic requirements. These people tend to forget that  the likes of Viv Richards, Virender Sehwag, Steve Waugh,Border,Chanderpaul,Greme Smith,Steven Smith  etc etc proved hugely successful not because of looking pleasing to the eyes' or having tight technique' or both. On the other hand players like Hooper,M.Waugh,Hick,Manjrekar etc etc turned out to be  only 'very good' at the best

Iyer is a good player he has the talent for LOIs but right now we have gun top 4.

He has higher potential than dk, manish, jadhav. But we dont have much time to groom him before wc. Experienced raina and dk are better options.

Not really, nothing can match a peak dhoni or a dhoni with long hair who started as WK batsman, he used to smack 150 kph bouncers of shoiab akhtar, talent wise dhoni was ahead than dk.

DK Was technically far more sound its just that i feel he debut to early then he shud have and as he grew older he developed a lot of shots, as a wk also he was far more flexible.......Seem DK do well as opener in england n that is no small achievement 

Dhoni played FC for quite a time n he may be alone was his team match winner so he had maturity n responsibility when he started. Dhoni in subcontinet was as good as anyone but overseas DK had a better game, dhoni kept improving his game and DK never got out of his mental block

Dhoni was more of self belief than Talent, DK was exact opposite. DK has the talent to smack 150 kph bowlers like Akhtar, but he would get out the next over trying to reverse sweep some one like Abdul razaq.

Did you go watch the game? How was it?

Yeah! Pretty good. The atmosphere was good, not especially electric in part perhaps Because it was not a close match (not that I was complaining about that ) the Indian innings started great but the middle overs was accumulation by Virat and Rohit. Could have been even more smooth had Dhawan not thrown it away

 

Bharat Army were in a next stand and their chants were great which livened things up.

 

Thought that India did great that day, good all round performance on a good batting wicket. Was disappointed with the pacemen not getting their lengths right and getting smashed. 

 

Of course the lords match has soured things since!!

Iyer gets the chance if he represents Pakistan or Australia because north and south Lobby supports Dhawan and Rahane,rohit regardless of their forms and Footwork with -in, the crease in test matches, changes are always good, no national team give chances to new player oftenly than Pakistan.
