“He is the only consistent guy in the ODI set up right now” – Twitter reacts after Shreyas Iyer said his goal is to win the World Cup and play knocks that help the team win games

Indian cricketer Shreyas Iyer has not been listed in the ongoing three-match T20I series against the Sri Lankan cricket team. The right-handed batsman has been included in the three-match ODI series against the Lankans.

The first ODI of the three-match ODI series will kick off on January 10 in Guwahati and it will be quite interesting to see how Shreyas Iyer goes about his business in the ODI series.

It is worth mentioning here that he has been the most consistent batsman for Team India in the ODI set-up. In the last calendar year, he even edged past veteran Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and became the leading run-scorer for India in ODIs in 2022.

During an interview with TOI, Shreyas Iyer set his goals straight and he exactly knows what he is going to do in the ongoing calendar year leading into the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023.

The star batsman said that his goal is to win the ODI World Cup and play significant knocks that help the team win matches. He wants to deliver the goods consistently for the team and also added that the selection is not in his hands.

The 28-year-old has represented the Indian cricket team in seven Tests, thirty-nine One Day Internationals and forty-nine Twenty20 Internationals so far in his international cricket career.

The right-handed batsman has literally enjoyed playing all three formats of the game. He averages 56.7, 48 and 30.7 in the respective formats. He aggregated 624 runs in the longest format of the game including 1 century and 5 fifties.

On the other hand, he has scored 1537 runs in the 50-over format including two centuries and 14 fifties. Shreyas Iyer scored 1043 runs in the shortest format of the game including seven half-centuries.
