Sanju Samson Fans Are Trolling Shreyas Iyer After He Failed To Perform Yet Again

Shreyas Iyer is hurting his cause for a place in India’s T20 side with his back-to-back low scores in the series against West Indies. The pressure keeps mounting on him in the shortest format given the likes of Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda were benched for these two games.

Shreyas Iyer Failed To Make It Big Again

Iyer had a good ODI series vs West Indies – where he registered scores of 54, 63 and 44 – but has been disappointing in the two T20Is so far. After bagging a 4-ball duck in the first T20I, the 27-year-old managed only 10 runs in 11 balls in the second T20I, on Friday in St.Kitts.

Iyer had to come out as early as on the second ball of the match after skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed for a golden duck by left-arm seamer Obed McCoy on a pitch that was assisting bowlers.

Iyer couldn’t get a single run of his first five balls as McCoy finished the first over as a wicket maiden with Iyer only pushing at the deliveries from McCoy.


In the second over, though, both Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer took on fast bowler Alzarri Joseph and both lofted the seamer for a six each over extra cover with sumptuous shots. However, both of their thrills were ended soon as SKY was dismissed for 11 off 6 balls by McCoy and Iyer by Joseph – both outside-edging to wicket-keeper Devon Thomas while slashing at deliveries outside off-stump.

The rope for Shreyas Iyer keeps getting shorter with every failure in the T20 format as India looks to finalize their squad for the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup. Samson and Hooda’s presence on the bench will further exacerbate Iyer’s worries as both have been in good touch in the shortest format in recent months.

Once again, Iyer was trolled heavily, especially by Sanju Samson’s fans who questioned Iyer’s place in the eleven over the Kerala batter.

Here are some of the tweets on Iyer:
