R Ashwin Backs Shreyas Iyer for No. 4 Spot in India ODI Squad for Asia Cup 2023: Ravichandran Ashwin has backed Shreyas Iyer to be India’s No. 4 batter in the ODI squad for the Asia Cup 2023. The veteran off-spinner said that Iyer is “extremely important” to the Indian team and that he has been “very consistent” at No. 4 in the past.
Ashwin’s comments come after the Indian selectors announced a 17-man squad for the Asia Cup, with Iyer one of the players included. The No. 4 spot has been a problem area for India in recent years, with several players tried and tested in the role without much success.
Ashwin believes that Iyer is the best man for the job and that he has the ability to anchor the Indian innings and build partnerships. He also said that Iyer is a good player against spin, which will be important in the Asia Cup, which will be played in the UAE.
Iyer is currently recovering from a shoulder injury, but Ashwin is confident that he will be fit for the Asia Cup. He said that Iyer is “showing unreal intent” in his training and that he is “very excited” to see him back in action.
