Shreyas Ayyar, a newcomer to Test cricket, has played 54 matches for India in white ball cricket. He started with a century in his debut match against New Zealand. It would have been really wrong not to take the 26-year-old batsman to South Africa after that. Ajinkya Rahane’s lack of rhythm can bring another chance in front of Shreyas. He also said that he is safe in the team.
“The dream of any professional cricketer is to play Test cricket,” Shreyas told a news conference. I have always wanted to play Test cricket for India. But I never put pressure on myself. I have relied on my own ability. I got the chance after so many days and I am ready. ”
Even after playing white ball cricket for a long time, Shreyas had a dissatisfaction in his mind. “I do what I love,” he said. But I am never satisfied. I’m glad I got it. But I always think I have more to gain. We have to work harder, we have to walk a long way. ”
The field of Kanpur is very significant in the cricket life of Shreyas. It was on this ground that his performance in Ranji cricket caught the eye. Hundreds also came in this field in the debut match. However, Shreyas said there was no pressure. “I want to play like myself,” he said. This management has allowed me to play that game. If I get the ball to run, I will kill. ”
Shreyas has played for the Indian team under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. He also played against him in IPL. Shreyas said, “Rohit has his own style of captaincy. He knows how to take the real game out of the team. Encourages everyone, knows how to play with young people.
