Shreyas Iyer's inclusion in Indian cricket team reward for domestic consistency

Shreyas Iyer's inclusion in Indian cricket team reward for domestic consistencyā€¯

"Iyer has been prolific across formats - in first-class, one-dayers, T20 - he's been performing consistently. We are monitoring the workload of the players, rotational policy will also apply to the captain", Prasad said. Nehra has been picked only for the first T20I and it will be his farewell game.

22-year-old Iyer was in fine form in the recently concluded series between New Zealand A and India A where he scored 317 runs in the four matches including a highest score of 108. The veteran seamer has announced that he will retire after the T20 match in Delhi, but there is no guarantee that he will get a chance to play in the "farewell" match. "He is doing well, he has been duly recognised and rewarded as well", Prasad said. Both received their maiden call-up into the national side for the 3-match series against New Zealand which starts next week. "We will continue with him and nurture him", said Prasad.

"Whether he is going to play or not, it is clearly the team management and the selector on call, whoever it is".

Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Ashish Nehra (only for the first T20). The think tank involved will be taking a call. Coming out to open the innings, Iyer smashed 439 runs in 14 matches before going on to bag the IPL emerging player of the Year award.

The T20 series begins on November 1 and will see the two sides play three T20s. Prasad also made it clear that Nehra would be not assured of a starting spot in his farewell match with that decision being left up to the team management. From the pool of players that were selected to play against Australia earlier this month, only one was dropped - batsman Kedar Jadhav. I will make it very clear and candid to you, we all know that right from the word go that communication has been our strong point.
