Shreyas Iyer seems to be making the most of his opportunities in One Day Internationals and would hope to cement his position in the ODI set-up ahead of the next year’s 50-overs World Cup in India. Iyer, who was impressive in the recent ODI series against South Africa, also did well in New Zealand and got off to a good start (24 off 39 balls) in the first ODI against Bangladesh on December 4 but couldn't utilise the start.
Shakib Al Hasan decimated the Indian batting line-up as he accounted for half of the side in the series opener with an outstanding fifer. The veteran all-rounder finished with match-winning figures of 5/36 in his 10 overs at an economy of 3.60 including two maidens.
