New Delhi: The world has always got big players from the Indian Premier League. India has also got many stars from the IPL, which is considered to be the biggest league in the world.

Meanwhile, India has now got another star player from this big league.
Got this best all-rounder from IPL
India has got another great all-rounder in the form of Venkatesh Iyer from the IPL. KKR opener Venkatesh Iyer has caught everyone’s attention. Apart from batting fast, Iyer is also adept at bowling amazingly. Apart from playing quick shots, he is also a wicket taker. In the coming time, he can earn a big name in Indian cricket. There is also a big reason behind this that India has not yet got any alternative to Hardik Pandya and Iyer can do that work.
The veteran also accepted this
Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has also admitted that Venkatesh Iyer can prove to be very effective for the Indian team in the coming times. In a column in the Times of India, Gavaskar wrote, ‘Iyer could be the all-rounder that India was looking for for a long time. Iyer came at a time when India is facing a shortage of all-rounders. Hardik Pandya’s injury has added to the problems of the team. Iyer can fill Pandya’s deficiency.
Looks like Yuvraj and Pandya
Venkatesh Iyer has the same strength as India’s legendary all-rounder Yuvraj Singh and Hardik Pandya. Iyer is a left-handed batsman and he has the ability to play long shots as well as play. Apart from this, he is also a medium pacer, who takes wickets. It is due to IPL that India got another new all-rounder.
Pandya leaves can be cut
According to reports, all-rounder Hardik Pandya may be dropped from the World Cup team due to his fitness. All teams have time till October 10 to change their team. In such a situation, if Hardik Pandya is unable to bowl, then the management may consider bringing in Shardul Thakur or Shreyas Iyer. At present, Thakur and Iyer have been included in the reserve. However, it will be difficult for the BCCI to do so. His fitness is being monitored. With time the picture will become clear. Venkatesh Iyer can also be an option in the coming time in place of Pandya.
