Shreyas Iyer, the right-handed batter continued his stellar performance in the second match of the Test series against Bangladesh. Iyer’s performances in the series were quite brilliant and the Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was quite sure that Iyer would be named the “Player of the Series”. After the match, Ashwin’s comment suggested the same but it seems like he was not aware of who got the Player of the Series award.

Ashwin was named the Player of the Match after the end of the 2nd Test against Bangladesh. Ashwin said,

 “Game was on the line. I thought Bangladesh played well. The game had to be won the hard way. Shreyas batted beautifully, if he wasn’t the player of the series, I’d have shared this with him,”

He added,

“In these situations, sometimes you feel you need to hit your way. They bowled well. But we needed to trust our defence. I wanted to get in and support Shreyas. The pitches were good, they were a touch slow. But the ball made a difference. The hosts put us under a lot of pressure. Good performances as well,

Ashwin has a slight misunderstanding and later it was Cheteshwar Pujara who eventually got the Player of the Series Award. Pujara in this series, was the top-scoring batter in the two matches, as he scored 222 runs at an average of 74. On the other hand, Iyer was the second-highest scorer in this series, as he scored 202 runs in total at an average of 101.

For Ashwin, the “Player of the Series” award, seems that Iyer certainly deserved to get the trophy ahead of Pujara.
