Disappointed Kevin Pietersen lambasted Sloppy Shreyas Iyer

The middle-order batter of Indian cricket team Shreyas Iyer suffered yet another failure after he faced a soft dismissal in the 1st innings of the IND vs. ENG 2nd Test. The right-handed batter was branded sloppy by former England cricket team star Kevin Pietersen, who went on to criticize Iyer’s intent in the game.
While speaking at the end of the second session on Day 1, Pietersen came down hard on Iyer over his technique. The former England star opined that the middle-order batter showed a lack of intent during the game and wasn’t able to put pressure on the bowlers. Pietersen also asserted that Iyer may lament over his missed chances once KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Jadeja return.
Shreyas Iyer managed to score only 27 runs before he was dismissed by Tom Hartley. The batter of Team India did not look settled while he was at the center and was seen constantly shuffling in the crease as he attempted to take on the spinners. A delivery from Hartley that stayed very low and managed to find itself safely in the hands of Foakes after an underedge from Iyer marked the end of his knock.
