India’s number four batsman Shreyas Iyer said that facing short bowling is related to a slight change in mentality and batting at the net. He said, ‘This is related to your mindset which needs a little change. How do you stand on a wicket? (During the stance) instead of bending too much, you have to stand upright. In such a situation it becomes easy to play short ball ‘.
Irey (Shreyas Iyer) said, ‘I have set this pattern for myself. Whenever I play, I give myself some time and set my feet at the crease. If they bowl with that fielding (for short ball) then I also adopt an aggressive attitude ‘.
Iyer agrees that he was dismissed due to confusion in playing shots against Josh Hazlewood in the first match. He said, ‘I knew he was going to bowl short ball. There were two things going on in my mind, I was thinking about doing bridge and also playing upper cut. I got stuck between two thoughts and couldn’t play the shot.
Irey (Shreyas Iyer) also spoke on the challenge of harmonizing different pitches such that the pitch had less bounce during the Indian Premier League in the UAE while Australia has more bounce. He said, ‘The wickets received for practice were different (in terms of bounce) than the wickets of the match. It is taking time to reconcile but it is a challenge. I am enjoying this challenge ‘.
Iyer said, ‘It is very difficult to adapt from the format of 20 overs to the format of 50 overs. Bowlers also have to field 50 overs after bowling 10 overs. From their point of view it is not easy but they will come back with a positive mindset.
