Shreyas Iyer overcame Suryakumar Yadav to become India’s leading run scorer in 2022. The batter went over the mark in the opening test match between Bangladesh and India on Wednesday. When Shreyas Iyer entered the game, India had a score of 112 for 4. At the end of the first day, with India earning 278 points, he is still unbeaten at 82.
Shreyas Iyer has scored 1489 runs for India in all formats this year, while Suryakumar Yadav has 1424 runs. Given that Suryakumar is almost probably done with India this year, Iyer appears to be on pace to finish the year as the Indian batter with the most runs scored.
Shreyas Iyer Looking For A Permanent Place In The Test Team
In only 38 innings of play, Shreyas Iyer has amassed 1489 runs. He has batted with an average of 47.96 in all formats. Iyer, a Kolkata Knight Riders IPL player, has scored 13 fifty-plus runs and one hundred runs this year, both of which came in a series of ODI matches against South Africa in October.
On Wednesday, when India needed a partnership, Shreyas Iyer arrived at the crease and provided it. The two combined for 149 runs with Cheteshwar Pujara for the fifth wicket. Iyer displayed the finest control while playing and displayed his class with some fantastic hitting in the middle. Iyer demonstrated exceptional batting prowess and maturity by gliding alongside Pujara and playing shots all over the field to save India from the early stumbles.
Iyer (82), who was unbeaten, was still on course to hit his milestone but Pujara (90) missed out on a century. India stabilized the innings after collecting early wickets with to Rishabh Pant’s counterattacking 46 in 45 balls. Axar Patel, 13, was dismissed after the penultimate ball of the day.
Bangladeshi bowler Taijul Islam (3/84) grabbed three wickets for 81 runs, along with Mehidy Hasan Miraz (2/71) and Khaled Ahmed (1/26).
