Shreyas Iyer is part of the Indian team T20I for the West Indies series
Shreyas Iyer is currently with the Indian team in West Indies for the ongoing five-game T20I series. The player is yet to fire the bat into the rubber and will be aiming to bounce back, scoring big runs in the remaining two matches.
He has scores of 0, 10 and 24 in the first three T20Is of the series. It has notably been under the scanner due to its recent disappointing outings in the format.
The Men in Blue currently lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is scheduled to be played in Florida on Saturday August 6.
Iyer, however, showed stunning form in the three-game ODI series against West Indies. He slammed two half-centuries in his three appearances and finished with 161 carries at an impressive 53.66 average.
