Shreyas Iyer Hits Afif Hossain For Three Consecutive Sixes

Sourav Ganguly’s tweet on after a conflict of interest notice was issued against Rahul Dravid

Indian Test cricketers, including batting mainstay Cheteshwar Pujara and young gun Mayank Agarwal, have started practising with the pink balls at the M Chinnaswamy stadium here, beginning their preparations for the country's first ever day-night Test. India and Bangladesh will play their maiden Test under the lights at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata from November 22.

Iyer top-scored with 62 runs off just 33 balls, with his knock including three consecutive sixes.

The entire act took place in the sixth over of the game when opener Liton Das made a decision to take on Yuzvendra Chahal and came down track but got beaten completely after a wild swing of the bat. If the ball pitches in my area, I am not going to control myself. "So I backed myself". I know I have to say that being a batsman, but I know how tough it was given the dew.

In the final T20, Iyer went ballistic after being cautious at the beginning. "I will bat according to my instincts", Iyer further added.

The highlight of Iyer's innings was when he hit offspinner Afif Hossain for three sixes in a row in the 15th over of the Indian innings, all of them down the ground. Yeah, I would give myself a credit, playing that role.

Liverpool's Salah out of Egypt games with ankle problem
In a further update to the injury saga related to Mohamed Salah , the Egyptian star has been pictured wearing a protective boot. Yet Salah impressed against Genk in the Champions League despite failing to score and was also key in the win over City.

Iyer admitted that India were feeling the pressure when Bangladesh were going strong at 110 for two in the 13th over, chasing 175.

Chahar, who was featuring in his sixth T20I since debuting previous year, and who has one ODI to his name, started his onslaught in his first over (the third of the innings), where he snaffled the wickets of Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar with his fourth and fifth deliveries, thanks to a catch deep on the leg-side then at mid-on.

"We were going little lethargic at the start, but once they started going, Rohit recalled all players inside the circle, he gave us a pep talk and after that, all of us got determined to win the match", he said.

"It worked out for Deepak, coming in and picking up two wickets at a crucial time". He's gained experience, and I feel he's a very confident lad.

However, the batsmen had to ensure that the team reached a decent and challenging total of 170 plus, before handing over the baton to the bowlers.
