Shreyas Iyer had a reasonably good outing for Men in Blue in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. When it looked like that India have found another superstar, he was dropped from the squad without any concrete reason.
He is trying his best to stage another comeback into the Indian team.
In the last edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he scored 484 runs at an average of 60.5. During the course of the tournament, he also hit two sublime hundreds.
However, his performances have done no good to him as he continues to be away from the national team. Iyer, who will lead Delhi Capitals in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, feels he didn’t get enough chances to prove his talent at the highest level of the game.
“Yeah, I felt that way. If there was some other player in place of me, he would have also felt disappointed. Your eventual goal is to play for your country. I was disappointed when I was dropped and didn’t get fair enough chances,” Shreyas told The Times of India (TOI). “But when you look at the TV and see your team winning, it gives a lot of satisfaction. That is more important.”
“I back myself at any number. I am just waiting for my chance,” he said. “I am doing really well in every tournament. I am enjoying my cricket and not thinking about the selection process. Selection is not in my hands. My job is to perform and I’m doing that. Anything can happen (in the future), you can get a random call from the selectors that you’ve been selected for the World Cup,” he added.
