Venkatesh Iyer will be seen in this role against New Zealand, created a lot at IPL 2021

The Indian team (IND) will play a three-game T20 series against New Zealand (NZ) starting on November 17. On Tuesday, the BCCI announced a 16-member team for this series. In this many young faces have been placed. Some players have a place in the Indian team for the first time. One of them is Venkatesh Iyer. Iyer, who caused a sensation at Kolkata Knight Riders at IPL 2021, may turn out to be a huge player in the series against New Zealand. He will strengthen the Indian team not only with batting, but also with bowling. He can prove to be the best all-rounder in Team India.

Venkatesh Iyer performed brilliantly while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL. He played the role of an all-rounder in the team. Iyer played 10 games in the last IPL season. In this 370 runs he came off his bat. Apart from this, he also impressed everyone with his bowling alley and took 3 wickets. He is being seen as a replacement for Hardik Pandya on the team. If he performs well in this series, then his place on the team can be made even more.

In an interview with a news agency, Venkatesh Iyer said that he is very happy to get a place in the India team and is ready to play the role of an all-rounder in the team. He says that from the beginning his attention was focused on both hitting and bowling. In the Ranji Trophy, he played the role of an off-roader while playing for Madhya Pradesh. He believes that aside from IPL, he has played an important role in getting here in national cricket tournaments.

The team’s star off-roader, Hardik Pandya, has long struggled with fitness issues. Even at the T20 World Cup, his fitness was questioned and he couldn’t perform well. This is the reason why he was not selected on the team for the New Zealand tour. Outgoing manager Ravi Shastri has also said the team lacks an all-rounder. In such a situation, the team management sees Iyer as an all-rounder. If he can play this role well in the next series, then he can make a place for himself on the team. However, it will not be correct to compare him with Hardik Pandya.

The first T20 match between India and New Zealand will be played on November 17, the second match on November 19 and the third on November 21. At this moment the New Zealand team is in a very good rhythm and has reached the final of the T20 World Cup.
