IND versus SL 2022 | I don’t see why Shreyas Iyer can’t replace Cheteshwar Puajara in the team, says Gautam Gambhir

Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has said Shreyas Iyer could be a potential replacement for Cheteshwar Pujara after the senior batsman was dropped from India’s squad for the Sri Lanka series. Gambhir also added that Shreyas has the temperament to be a mid-level batsman in the team.

India are set to play a multi-format series against Sri Lanka. The team will play two tests against the visitors. Two veteran drummers Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar pujara were dropped from their squad due to their recent form. Shreyas IyerHanuma Vihari, Shuhbhman Gill and Priyank Panchal are considered as the players who can replace these two batsmen in the middle order.

Reflecting on Pujara’s removal from the Test squad, Gautam Gmabhir opined that Shreyas Iyer could be his potential replacement.

“He’s been brilliant so far. He’s shown that in his innings against New Zealand. Not everyone can score a century in their first Test inning. He’s got all the punches and has the temperament of a mid-level hitter He can build an inning well and play the anchor role He can be the perfect No. 3 hitter for India I don’t see why he can’t replace Pujara in Playing XI in India,” Gambhir said on Byju’s Cricket Live during the India v South Africa series.

Iyer made an impressive start to his Test career by scoring a century on his debut.
