Courtesy of a brilliant century against Netherlands at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Shreyas Iyer is once again the talk of the town. He is in sensational form at the moment and is the third-leading run-scorer for India in the ongoing ODI World Cup. Iyer has not only managed to clear the fence from time to time but is also brilliant in rotating the strikes, which makes him a very dangerous player in ODI cricket.

Former India international Aakash Chopra identified the same and added that the Mumbai-born cricketer doesn’t slow down at all and that he understands the DNA of ODI cricket extremely well. Chopra further added that Iyer bats sensibly and is not reckless, which is helping him in the ODI World Cup 2023.

“Shreyas Iyer scored a century. He bats extremely well because he doesn’t slow down at all. He keeps hitting but does it sensibly and is not reckless. Takes singles against spin and then hits it in the air. Whoever bats from No. 4 to No. 6, shouldn’t hesitate to hit the ball in the air. Others find it risky, but batters at these numbers should see it as a scoring opportunity. He understands the DNA of ODI cricket extremely well,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.

Aakash Chopra lauded KL Rahul for his century

After missing out on a century against Australia earlier in the tournament, KL Rahul finally managed to cross the line against Netherlands and eventually became the fastest Indian cricketer to do so in World Cup history as he reached the 100-run mark in just 62 deliveries. Chopra lauded him for his performance and shared his views on the importance of milestones.

“He scored 100 runs in 62 balls. Hearty congratulations to him firstly because he missed one in the first match but it happened here. I am not at all obsessed but our game is slightly obsessed and our country is extremely obsessed with milestones,” Chopra said.
