But it was in the following T20 series against Sri Lanka that Iyer really caught the eye.

Promoted in the order to bat at number three, Iyer made three unbeaten half-centuries for the series and amassed an outstanding 204 runs from three hits at a strike rate of 174.

His efforts saw him top the run-scorer charts for the series and he was duly rewarded by a massive jump of 27 places to 18th on the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings.

Former Sri Lanka batter and voting panel member Russel Arnold was full of praise for Iyer.

“Throughout the month Shreya’s showed tremendous consistency and control,” Arnold said.

“He totally dominated opposition bowlers and proved very hard to bowl at, scoring runs all around the wicket and attacking the bowlers at the right moments.

“What really stood out for me was his composure as he battles for a regular place in the India line-up.”
