IND vs WI: Life was really tough for me in last two months, says Shreyas Iyer
IND vs WI: Shreyas Iyer, who made 80 runs in the third One-Day International against the West Indies, said that the last two months had been “really” difficult for him.
India defeated West Indies by 96 runs in the third and final One-Day International at Narendra Modi Stadium on Friday, thanks to Shreyas Iyer’s 80-run performance and a team effort from the entire bowling unit. Iyer tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and was forced to miss the first two One-Day Internationals against the West Indies.
“To be honest, life was really tough for me in last two months. Had an infection and Covid, but this day has summed up for all those days. I am flexible to bat anywhere but No. 4 is the best number to bat at,” said Iyer at the post-match presentation.

“If I am thrown into a pressure situation like today, I thrive on it and enjoy those moments. When I go in, like today’s situation, I had to play off the new ball. For that you need to have good skill and play close to the body.
“From there you need to set the rhythm through the innings. Its not easy, but if you focus on your skills you can do it,” he added.
Both teams will now face off in a T20I series in Kolkata, which will begin on February 16.
