India vs SL 1st T20: Shreyas Iyer reveals ‘every plan came off’ with Ishan Kishan in Lucknow | Cricket News

Indian batter and Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer admits that the start to the undefeated 57 in the first T20I against Sri Lanka is slow but conditions on the field are not easy to negotiate. At one point, Iyer was 17 off 14 balls. But of the next 14 balls, Iyer scored 40 touchdowns to give a fine end to the Indian mark of 199, setting the stage for a 62-run win.

“My start was slow but not easy. But as soon as my eyes came in, and once I had the border, I thought I would move on. Ishan (Kishan) can’t take the time (in the middle) and he too is losing patience, so I told him to take his time and then start again well. I just told him to take his time, come two-two and three, ”Iyer said after the match.

Talking about the idea during the fight with Kishan, Iyer emphasized on turning the strike into a big land. “Our plan was to hit the pockets, while that was what we did, and things came out good for us. It was a great land, especially after playing in the Garden of Eden. We had planned to run several pairs and finally the whole idea came out. ”

Talking about his own innings, Iyer left to the moment of the ball well while going for his shots. “I am trying to stay current. I don’t think much, I think 180 would be a good total. I just focus on watching football closely and try to time it well and pick up my rifles. ”

Iyer signed off on saying he had tried to lure vice-captain Jasprit Bumrah to give him permission to try his leg-time rotation. “I raised my hand (for a bowl). Around the 16th on when he (Rohit) left, he had already told Bumrah these were the bowls he needed to make. I tried to get Bumrah but it didn’t work for me. “
