DC beat SRH in IPL 2021: Shreyas Iyer completes 4000 runs, opens up on playing under Rishabh Pant, ‘I respect the decision’

DC BEAT SRH in IPL 2021 – Shreyas Iyer: Speaking about captaincy, Iyer said, “It was part of decision making from franchise and I respect the decision.” He credited Rishabh Pant for his exceptional leadership from the start of IPL 2021.

“It’s a really good feeling, to be honest. I wouldn’t say that I’m satisfied because the hunger has just grown up. And, the appetite keeps on increasing every match you play. So, I’m not satisfied nor content,” Iyer told reporters.

“See, I have a very close-knit family and friends and they never made me feel that I was going through an injury. Firstly, when I got injured, it was really difficult for me to adapt to the fact that I was injured because I keep doing so many activities here and there. And, never think about that situation and that occurred. So, it was really tough for me to adapt but family and friends kept me busy and a positive frame of mind. When the rehab started and I started gaining strength that feeling was really amazing and that put me in a really good frame of mind that I’ll come back positive and strong,” he added.
