Shreyas Iyer scored his first century in the World Cup. He scored a hundred off 84 balls. Shreyas’ century against the Netherlands in Bengaluru brought joy to Kolkata as well. Shreyas is the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders. KKR are happy as he scored a hundred.
Shreyas could not play a single match in this IPL due to injury. After recovering from that injury, he returned to the Indian team before the World Cup. But he was not getting runs like that at the beginning of the World Cup. KKR assistant coach Abhishek Nair was happy to see Shreyas getting runs. He said, “The road to recovery was very difficult for Shreyas. His back hurts him a lot. Couldn’t play IPL. But it’s good to see him back in form this time. Before the start of the World Cup, there were questions about Shreyas’ inclusion in the team. Many commented on whether he deserved the number four spot or not. But Rohit Sharma was by his side.”
When Shreyas came out to bat against the Netherlands on Sunday, India were 129/2. He made a partnership of 71 runs with Virat. Lokesh Rahul accompanied him to get Virat out. But on this day Shreyas did the real work for India. Nair said, “Shreyas scored a century before the World Cup against Australia. That gives her confidence back. Shreyas’ inability to play the short ball started to be questioned after not getting runs at the start of the World Cup. Answered all that. That is the best. He can play these innings.”

India’s middle order looks very strong as Shreyas gets runs. Nair said, “Indian team has changed since Shreyas got runs. Now everyone understands why Shreyas is needed at number four. He scored runs on all types of pitches whether bounce or spin. Shreyas has batted like himself. Hit six, hit four. He has shouldered the responsibility of scoring runs for the team.”
Shreyas scored 128 off 94 balls against the Netherlands on Sunday. He and Lokesh Rahul remained unbeaten. Together they made an innings of 208 runs. India crossed 400 runs against Netherlands.
