Shreyas Iyer is comfortable batting at any position and said scoring a century against South Africa A in a tournament final earlier this year has been satisfying. Iyer, who is part of the 16-member Indian squad for the T20I series against New Zealand starting on Wednesday.
“It was very helpful for me. I was going through a good patch, got good starts, but I was not able to convert them into big knocks till the final,” Iyer told reporters on the eve of the first T20 International against New Zealand.
“It (the final) was a big game, it (the knock) was really satisfying that it came through and obviously, once you get the team through, you get a lot of attention from the teammates as well.”
Iyer said he is flexible batting at any position.
“I think I am very flexible. I don’t mind batting at any number. Even in Indian Premier League (IPL) this year, I was shuffled from number four to number three. It did not really matter to as I am comfortable,” Iyer said.
