Reportedly Shreyas Iyer's superb finishing act in the auckland T20I against new zealand has certainly impressed indian opener KL rahul who said that Iyer's execution was perfect as he helped india gun down 204 in Auckland. When reflecting on his innings, Man of the Match Iyer said he always looks to finish games for the country whenever there is an opportunity and is learning from senior pros, virat kohli and rohit Sharma.
rahul added "It was good to see that whoever was walking out was doing so with the intent to do that. And the execution was very impressive today. That is very heartening to see. And the way Shreyas finished it off, the way he celebrated very calmly after reaching his half-century, and he finished the game and then celebrated." Perhaps KL rahul said in the post-match presser. "The responsibility of being an IPL captain, he has understood how to finish the games. He showed that responsibility in the last ODI too and here too. Those are great signs for us".
Moreover the immensely talented shreyas iyer enhanced his reputation of a finisher with a stupendous 29 ball 58 as an unbeaten 62 run partnership off 34 balls between him and manish pandey ensured that india took a 1-0 lead in the five-game series. Shreyas said "When you hit a six to finish a match, the feeling is special. My aim is to always finish games whatever time I spend on the pitch. We have players like Virat Bhai, rohit Bhai who finish games and staying with them helps you learn".
