Realizing that his question made Iyer a bit upset, the reporter clarified saying, “Not a problem exactly, but it’s troubled you.”
“Troubled me?” Iyer replied. “Have you seen how many pull shots I’ve scored, especially that have gone for four? If you’re trying to hit a ball, you’re bound to get out anyway, irrespective of if it’s a short ball, if it’s overpitched If I get bowled two or three times, you all would say, ‘he can’t play an inswinging ball, he can’t play a cut if the ball is seaming’.
“We as players, we are bound to get out on any sort of deliveries. You guys have created that mahaul outside that ‘he can’t play a short ball’, and I feel that people are picking that up every now and then and it plays on your mind regularly, and you keep working on that,” he continued.
