Shreyas is a Test match attacker: Former selector Paranjpe

Mumbai, Nov 24 (PTI) Terming the selection of Shreyas Iyer right for the first Test against New Zealand starting Thursday, former national selector Jatin Paranjpe on Wednesday said he is an “aggressive batsman in the longer format of the game”. .

“We have seen him (Shreyas) play limited overs cricket, so I think most people don’t know that he is actually a good player,” Paranjpe told reporters at the Mumbai Cricket Association’s Bandra Kurla complex here on Wednesday. He is also a Test player. He is a modern and aggressive player.

Paranjpe, who has played four ODIs for India, said, “I think getting a chance to make his home debut is good for any player and it will be the same for Shreyas. ,

Earlier in the day, India captain Ajinkya Rahane confirmed that right-handed batsman Shreyas will make his Test debut in Kanpur.
