Ex-pacer criticises India’s “bizarre” selection: “There are quality players than Iyer”

Iyer ended up being removed by Obed McCoy for a 4 duck after receiving a leading edge on a delivery that kept its line.

However, the right-hander scored two hundreds in the just-completed ODI series against the West Indies. Iyyer is a solid pick in ODIs, but India currently has quality players than the Kolkata Knight Riders skipper in T20Is, Prasad noted in response to a fan who reminded him of that.

During the opening T20 cricket match at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba, Trinidad and Tobago, India’s Shreyas Iyer is removed off the field after being caught by the West Indies’ Akeal Hosein (AP).

The selection of India for the opening T20I match against the West Indies just at Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad did not impress former India bowler Venkatesh Prasad in the least. Shreyas Iyer was chosen by India as their third option in the series opener. Prasad thought the choice was unusual given that India’s roster included players like Sanju Samson, Deepak Hooda, and Ishan Kishan.

Shreyas Iyer playing T20 cricket when Sanju Samson, Hooda, and Ishan Kishan are in the team is bizarre, Prasad tweeted on Friday. “With Virat, Rohit, and Rahul definite starters, need to work on getting the right balance,” Prasad added. “A few of the selection conversations keeping the upcoming World T20 in mind are worth pondering.”
