Indian cricket star Shreyas Iyer expressed his frustration regarding questions about his ability to handle short balls following India's triumph over Sri Lanka in the 2023 World Cup in Mumbai. Iyer's exceptional 82-run knock from 56 balls contributed to India's 357-run total despite concerns over his performance against short-pitched deliveries.

In the tournament, Iyer had been dismissed several times by deliveries of back-of-a-length and short balls. However, after intensive practice sessions during the World Cup, he now dismisses any concerns related to facing such deliveries. He firmly believes that the outside world has created an unnecessary narrative around this issue.

During a post-match press conference, Iyer responded to a question about the short-ball problem, saying, "When you say it's a problem for me, what do you mean?" He continued, "You guys have created that atmosphere outside that I can't play a short ball, and I feel that people pick up on that, and it plays on your mind regularly."

Hailing from Mumbai, Iyer underscored the critical influence of Wankhede Stadium's characteristic bounce on his playing style. "Growing up in Mumbai, especially at Wankhede, where the bounce is notably reliable and superior to other pitches," he elaborated. "I've dedicated a significant part of my career to mastering these conditions."

The right-handed hitter emphasized his belief in his ability as well as his resolve to grow. "There's a lot of discussion in the media, as you all do. But I'm confident in my game and in myself, and I'm serious enough to play certain deliveries," he said. "I may get out again and again, but to be honest, I don't mind. As long as I believe in myself and my teammates believe in me. They believe in me, and that is all that counts; it is what drives me." 

Iyer's performance and confidence have become vital for India's success in the present World Cup as they seek a semi-final position.
