What led Ajinkya Rahane to drop the word ‘contribution’ in relation to Shreyas Iyer’s performance?

Team India’s star middle-order batsman, Shreyas Iyer, has been all around the news for quite some time now. The star batter, along with Ishan Kishan, was axed from BCCI’s Central contract list.

Although, after being axed from the Central contract list, Shreyas Iyer has made a comeback in the Ranji Trophy setup for Mumbai’s semi-final game of the tournament.

Mumbai’s skipper, Ajinkya Rahane, has backed the star batter to turn the table around in the semi-final clash of the tournament. 

Speaking of Shreyas, Iyer Rahane said, “He’s an experienced player. His contribution has been amazing whenever he has turned up for Mumbai. We are thrilled to have him on our team for the semifinal.”.

Rahane further went on to say that Shreyas doesn’t require any extra motivation before their semi-final clash against Tamil Nadu.

“I don’t think he needs any encouragement or advice. He has always contributed with the bat for Mumbai, and him being around other players in the dressing room will also help the team’s cause,” said Rahane.

However, Rahane himself had a forgetful season with the bat so far in the Ranji Trophy, as the batter has only scored 115 runs from six matches at a modest average of 12.77.

Mumbai’s skipper confirmed that opener Prithvi Shaw has recovered from a finger injury that forced him to bat in the middle order during the quarterfinal.
