Rahul Dravid “Was Getting Anxious”: Shreyas Iyer on the atmosphere in the dressing room during the second ODI against the West Indies

On Sunday, Axar Patel scored 64 runs quickly to help India overcome West Indies by two wickets.
India and West Indies’ second one-day international came down to the wire, as Axar Patel showed composure by hitting a six on the fourth delivery of the final over to aid Shikhar Dhawan’s team in chasing down 312 runs and secure a 2-0 unbeatable series advantage.

After the game, Shreyas Iyer discussed the atmosphere in the Indian changing room and also how head coach Rahul Dravid was “becoming nervous” as he too contributed a 63-run knock.

To be honest, it was enjoyable. Rahul sir was becoming agitated as we were all seated together. He was disseminating the information. However, I believe that a lot of the players had excellent emotion on the field. They handled the pressure conditions with great poise “said the batter at a press conference following the game.

“We have experienced such feelings though we have played so many games; for us, it was simply another game. I believe we performed admirably, particularly Axar. Excellent knock, “Added he.

Iyer continued by mentioning Rahul Dravid: “I’ve been collaborating with Vikram Rathour and Rahul Dravid for a very long time.

We discuss temperament and technique in relation to individual matches. Conditions shift. Everyone speaks during our team meetings. While we don’t reach a decision, we do learn from one another’s points of view. We’re having a great conversation right now. Rahul Sir has been helpful throughout; he doesn’t put a lot of mental strain on.

Siraj stayed unbeaten on 1 together with Axar. Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer were both in their fifties.

Shai Hope performed a 115-run knock in his 100th One Day International, becoming the 10th male batter to get a hundred in his 100th One Day International. Earlier, West Indies achieved 311/8 in 50 overs.
