Shreyas Iyer opens up on BCCI central contract snub

I had a tremendous World Cup. I wanted to take a break after that, work on my body & build my strength around certain areas – due to lack of communication, there were some decisions that didn’t go in my favour. At the end of the day the bat is always going to be in my hand & it’s upon me to perform and win trophies. I knew that once I win the Ranji Trophy and the IPL, that will be an apt answer to whatever happened in the past. Thankfully, everything fell in the right place. We have a lot more trophies to win in the future,” Shreyas Iyer said.
