Aakash Chopra lauds India batter after his magnificent century in the second ODI against Australia. Shreyas Iyer struck 205 from 90 deliveries in England’s second One-Day International against Australia.
Former India opener Aakash Chopra praised Shreyas Iyer after his magnificent knock in the second ODI against Australia on September 24 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. The middle-order hitter produced an incredible comeback, scoring 105 runs off 90 balls. As a consequence, India won the match by 99 runs using the Duckworth Louis Stern (DLS) system and thus leads the ODI series 2-0.
Shreyas was under pressure, but he appeared in command during the match, according to Chopra. He also name Player of the Match for his match-winning knock. He also praise him for his fantastic drives and clever blows over the cover region against the Australian bowlers.
“Hes under duress. However, the team was sure that Shreyas is our major player and that we should continue with him. He was superb in the manner he hit a shot over the covers and then played those drives. “He was completely in charge,” Chopra stated on his YouTube channel.
The 46-year-old went on to claim that Shreyas batted extremely effectively and did not offer the opposition any opportunities to get him out. Notably, Shreyas and opener Shubman Gill, who also got a century, put up a 200-run stand.
“It wasn’t like there were any edges or dropped catches.” There was nothing like that. He batted quite well. “At first, it appeared that Shreyas Iyer was Shubman Gill, and Shubman Gill is Shreyas Iyer, who is returning from injury,” he continued.
I am not going to call him Suryakumar Yadav, but Sixer Kumar Yadav: Chopra
Suryakumar Yadav’s batting performance in the second ODI was also lauded by Aakash Chopra. He referred to the batter as ‘Sixer Kumar Yadav’ and backed the BCCI’s decision to choose him for the much-anticipated ICC Cricket World Cup, which begins on October 5. Notably, the 33-year-old blasted 72 off 37 balls, including six boundaries and three maximums.
“I’m not going to call him Suryakumar Yadav; I’m going to call him Sixer Kumar Yadav.” He has a lot of sixes. Everyone was telling you to go green. He advised us to take the Green route near the border line. It was an incredible inning. He is a complete player who has validated the decision to back him for the World Cup. “This is admirable,” Chopra concluded.
