    Shreyas Iyer Performance Watch

    I haven't watched him play in IPL or any domestic matches.

    He's currently battling on 184 against Australia. I think averages 54 in first class cricket.

    We need new blood particularly in ODIs. Maybe he's that candidate along with Rishabh Pant to be groomed for next world cup.

    He is a bit like Sehwag. India has plenty of openers available.

    Will an unbeaten double century earn a place in the Test side? An unbeaten triple century wasn't good enough recently.

    Well we need an extra batter after Rahane, when we tour abroad, so unless Karun is better than Shreyas wrt handling pace, Iyer is in real contention looking at the ease with which he plays most pacers.

    Nair has earned the right to be the first call when a replacement is needed. No one should be considered before him. Pant and Shreyas will duke it out for the replacement after Nair.

    Pant is a keeper so ke can be a reserve keeper/bat atm, Shreyas can replace Nair if the team management feels he's better. There's no (birth)right that Karun has earned after a single (good) innings at home. We're yet to see what he can do on pacier tracks, that judgment should be reserved till we see him in action abroad.

    Yep. Struggled in Ranji against short ball. I have said in PP before he has sehwag level handeye Co. Massive talent but in development phase.

    Bilawal Bhatti is a better player than Binny.

    Binny's name is still considered thanks to 1 spell against Bangladesh

    The only other thing of note that Binny has done was a 50 in the England test series in 2014.

    On what basis will you judge Shreyas v/s Nair abroad. The last game Nair played was a triple, Shreyas has played only at A level. So Nair would always get the first call.

    With Iyer an Nair, Pujara and Rahane will always be under a knives edge to perform. While Pujara needs to reaffirm team's faith by finally performing abroad. Rahane will have to be consistent, in this side one epic knock wont cut it.

    So far he's not had a string of good sores, its been one test followed by low scores. I think he needs a really good Australian series, to cement his spot for good.

    I think its unfair that no one is discussing the fast bowlers in the domestic circuit. We have atleast 10 bowlers who touch 145k's , in the domestic circuit. That's quite an improvement bowling standard wise

    That is hardly anything to be excited about. If they are crap, they will only race to boundary that much faster.

    Yes..I saw Sandeep Warrier yesterday in Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 competition. He was consistently around 140-145 kph. But was tonked all over the park by Harpreet Singh and tailender Amit Mishra

    Just feel atm there are too many young Indian batsmen ready to be blooded and no space in the squad. Yes, they may all look good and maybe scoring double/ triple centuries at home.

    But I am really looking forward to India's overseas leg since that will separate the wheat from the chaff and we would know who is truly cut out for international cricket and worth investing in more.

    It depends on whether any of the two get a game abroad, sadly Sharma (the other one) is Virat's favorite so I'll wait wait before any of the two is confirmed a spot in the test(s) abroad, especially in SA.

    If both of them get picked, in the full 16 or 18 squad, then I guess the one who's performed better in the practice match would be my pick. I see both of them equally good (or bad) against genuine pace, Karun though has the Sachinesque upper cut, so there's no favorite atm so far as I'm concerned.

    It's a shame that Starc & Hazlewood didn't bowl over here, cricinfo did show them initially in the squad even after Aus started batting in the first innings, just so we could gauge his prowess against genuine pace & quality line/length bowler. The last two FC games though, against Aus & Bangladesh, he's done really well & that shouldn't be taken lightly.

    That was a one off, he bowled pretty well in the tournament and was amongst the wicket.

    Nair cannot and should not be removed from the squad without giving him another chance. That should be a given.

    By squad you mean the playing 11 or 16/18 member squad when touring? He isn't going out of the (full) squad anytime soon, whether he'll feature in the final 11 is hard to say atm.

    I havent seen them play, but I would be very skeptical of the claim that these guys bowl at 145k.

    Their effort balls may be 145k, with most deliveries in the 135k range.

    70% bowlers in can't hit 90mph even with effort. Some I haven't seen or followed. People do claim Basil can clock 90 consistently.

    Aussie spinners, in particular Lyon, got a tonking.

    I was more impressed by the seamers. Beat the bat a lot of times.

    I've seen them play :
    Mohd siraj
    Nathu Singh
    Aniket chaudhary
    Ankit rajpoot
    Sandeep warrior
    Pradeep sangwan
    Shardool thakur

    And I can safely say that except aniket chaudhary no one is test standard atm.

    Wanna bet ?,trust me buddy, their are 3-4 more guys I havent mentioned in this list guy's like suyal, the reason being slowly but steadily domestic teams are realising importance of fast bowlers and more money means more effort and more recognition their are atleast 18-20 guys in domestic capable of bowling sharp pace and a lot of them are young and a lot of them are tall too, then their are all-rounders like Vijay shankar bowling up-to bhuvi's pace that is upto 137-138 but is a very solid bat, he can also add a couple of kph as well.

    Ankit rajpoot
    Sandeep warrior
    Pradeep sangwan
    Shardool thakur

    And I can safely say that except aniket chaudhary no one is test standard atm.
    Rubbish,its too early to pass judgement, sangwan barely clocked 135-36 couple of years ago, but since he has put muscles and tweaked his action has upped his pace quiet a bit, these guys are young and slowly but steadily are gaining prominence in domestic circuits, some of them are on radars of selectors as well, test drafting is a long way yet, I am sure you will see them in odi's and t20 teams soon, because we don't play bowlers straight away in tests.

    Ya two names that comes to my mind are Amit kuila and ishan porel, beside no body is saying they are finished products all I am saying is they have shown that flair that oomph that was missing in our fast bowling, it depends on how much hard work they do, and I am pretty certain with Kohli u will see hardwork and work ethics given preference.

    no brother, u should normalize it down by 50 kph, jokes aside, we have seen them and are happy that for the first time in Indian history, we have so many guys capable of bowling very good pace and can be asset for us for longer periods.

    No place for young guns in Indian team.
    KL Rahul
    Vijay
    Pujara
    Kohli
    Rahane
    Saha (wk)


    Where will you find place? and still a talented star Rohit Sharma in waiting. Injuries will allow them a few matches now and then.

    Rahul is young inexperienced and the most inconsistent of the batsmen in the line up you named, and what if Rahane failed again like the England series? everyone knows even Ashwin is a better bat than Saha. why not try Pant or Ishan Kishan?
    And if Rahane failed again try Iyer?

    Something tells me that Vijay is on his last leg. I know he is still scoring some runs ,but the 'Vijay concentration' is not just there anymore. Just a bit loose.

    I will take that bet. Give me proof of at least three of them clocking 90mph on legitimate speed meter and I will always keep them in my signature on PP.

    ^ agreed.

    Even Shardul Thakur bowls 135 and gets to 140 with his effort ball.

    Maybe Basil Thampi hits 90 but that's it.

    Yup if he can't score big runs (hundreds) this next away set of tours will be the last of him, an opener has lesser shelf life & even less wiggle room if he wants to continue to hold a spot in this team.

    Whenever the next T20 is played, India must induct Pant/Samson/Iyer into the team. These 3 are tremendous T20 players.

    But India will continue to select Rahane/Yuvraj & Dhoni.

    What a poor comment. Guy scored 1300+ runs in Ranji last season and is only the second player after VVS Laxman to do that. Arrogance is a different thing and can be worked upon, but his talent cannot be questioned.

    A fine fine prospect for #4 and can make that spot his own if he continues to perform like this. They way he manoueuvered the ball in the middle overs is something which is missing in Indian team. All the best to him, Hope he makes it big.

    Shreyas Iyer's 55-ball 147 with 15 sixes smashes domestic T20 record


    Mumbai smashed the third-highest T20 score in India, and the seventh highest in all T20 cricket, after they finished at 258 for 4 against Sikkim in Indore.

    On the way, Shreyas Iyer's 55-ball 147 also broke Rishabh Pant's 128* as the highest T20 score by an Indian.

    Iyer struck 15 sixes and seven fours in his innings, including a 35-run over off Sikkim medium-pacer Tashi Bhalla. He was assisted by Suryakumar Yadav's 33-ball 63.

    Incidentally, Iyer's 15 sixes also saw him take the record among Indian batsmen for most sixes in a T20 innings from M Vijay (11). Iyer is now perched tied-fourth with Chris Gayle on the overall list.

    I wish BCCI got guys like Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan to concentrate on 50-over cricket and had them playing domestic one-dayers in overseas countries besides just the 'A' tours. If we can get them up to international level, players like these would make our middle order a force to be reckoned with. Iyer has been smashing sixes in domestic cricket for fun, but he can look so ordinary sometimes.

    Shreyas Iyer just scored his second century in 3 T20s in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Madhya Pradesh today. Scored an unbeaten 103 off 55 balls with 10 sixes while chasing 144. So far his numbers in the tournament are:

    Innings: 3
    Runs: 296
    Average: 148.00
    Strike Rate: 197.33
    Fours: 16
    Sixes: 28

    Runs: 213
    Average: 213.00
    Strike Rate: 171.77

    Pure Epitome of FLAT TRACK BULLY, the minute the ball bounce anything above knee level he struggles. I hope he doesn't take up space of a good player for India.
