India vs. Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I: highlights
“Firstly I want to cherish this moment, I got a really good total in this T20I series. I want to relax a bit, give myself time and not think about it too much. I’m just staying in the moment now. Let’s see if. ” They play the T20I format, if you bat in the top 3 that’s a place to really time your innings from. If you knock down the order, you can’t take your time and have to go from ball one. Iyer said during a virtual press conference.
“Not getting out in all three games is a commendable performance on my part. I don’t get any expectations. When you see the competition in our squad, it’s immense. I just want to enjoy every opportunity. I like finishing the Play and that’s my mindset, I can’t talk about consolidating my place, the competition is so big you have to be flexible to beat in every position,” he added.
Speaking further about the competition within the squad, Shreyas said: “My mindset is to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible and I maximize them. I play like before, there was no special preparation. Every player has their own strengths and weaknesses, my mindset is to focus on my strengths. I don’t get bogged down when people think short balls are my weakness.”
The Indian juggernaut in T20Is continued as they hammered Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in the 3rd T20I at Dharamsala on Sunday. The Asian giants, world no. Dasun Shanka’s brave 74 was in vain as Sri Lanka were unable to defend 146 in the 3rd T20I, losing all three games on their tour so far.
