We can’t play in T20 mode straightaway in fifty overs because there is more time: Shreyas Iyer after Auckland defeat
Latham and Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson (94* off 98) added an unbroken 221 runs for the fourth wicket.
Shardul Thakur dismissed Finn Allen for 22, while debutant Umran Malik sent back Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell 11.
Latham and Williamson, however, proved too for India’s bowlers on the day.
At a post-match conference, Shreyas was asked if India finished with a below par total.
Describing reaching 307 as a commendable effort, he added, “Few things didn’t go our way. It is a learning curve for us and hopefully we can go back and introspect and come back with new ideas.”
Defending the batters, he said, “We can’t play in the T20 mode straightaway in fifty overs because there is more time. One can plan his batting looking at the wicket and deciding in his mind what ...
...a par score would be. One needs to adapt. Fifty overs can change from time to time. Sometimes there can be sunset, there can be dew on other times and you don’t know how the wicket will play.”
“I believe that partnership completely changed the scenario of the game and that was a crucial phase for us to get the wicket. If we ...
...would have got one wicket, we would have been under the skin and the situation would have been completely different,” he added.
