Shreyas Iyer again made a splash with the bat in the 2015 Ranji season. In 2017, he was about to make his Test debut, but the time may have approved something else.

Finally, after 18 years, a player got a chance to make his Test debut against New Zealand. There was Yuvraj Singh in 2003 and now Shreyas Iyer’s number has come in 2021. In the Kanpur Test, Iyer became the 303rd player to play Test cricket for India. Till a few months back, he was admitted in the hospital with an injured shoulder. Could not play till the initial season of IPL 2021, but getting the Indian Test cap from there was not so easy for this Mumbai batsman.

It was not easy to win coach Dravid’s trust
The talk is of 2016, then Rahul Dravid was the mentor of Delhi Daredevils (today’s Delhi Capitals). By the end of the season, young Shreyas had lost his place in the playing XI due to poor form. After being disillusioned with the IPL, Dravid got involved in grooming Indian cricket. Started coaching India ‘A’ and Under-19 teams. During this, Shreyas Iyer once again came in contact with Dravid. Returned to domestic cricket and scored runs. Within a year, Iyer had won Dravid’s trust again.

Debut would have happened four years ago
26-year-old Shreyas Iyer made his international debut in 2017. Played his first One Day International against Sri Lanka in Dharamsala. He could also make his Test debut at the same ground. Then in March, after Virat Kohli’s injury, he was supposed to find a place in the playing XI against Australia, but stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane came with an extra bowler and Shreyas Iyer had to wait four years to play the first Test. Prior to that series, Iyer had scored an unbeaten double century in the warm-up match against Australia.

Iyer’s debut is part of Dravid’s plan
Rahul Dravid is a visionary person. After becoming the coach, he has made it clear many times that his target is the World Test Championship. In such a situation, the arrival of young players like Shreyas Iyer in the team is a sign of that change. Iyer is a strong middle order player. Since 2019, he is a strong contender for number four in ODIs and T20s. Anyway, it has become necessary to find alternatives of players like Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara. Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav and Shubman Gill are part of Guru Dravid’s core plan.

Tremendous record in first class cricket
The doors of Team India open with domestic cricket. In Mumbai, cricket is in the air. Shreyas also came out of this furnace and became Kundan. Till 2019, in five seasons, 4592 runs had come off his bat at an average of 52.18. The strike rate also stood at 81.54. Shreyas Iyer did make a comeback later in the second leg of IPL 2021 in UAE, but he was not made the captain. The team kept its faith in Rishabh Pant, who replaced him after a shoulder injury. After the IPL, there was a return to the Indian T20 team, but the T20 World Cup was limited to only reserve players in the squad.
