Iyer is to be commended not only for his runs or boundaries but also for his batting style. Sunil Gavaskar praised the way he said, “Intelligent batting.” Gavaskar did not stop there to praise Iyer. He compared some of the shots of this top-order batsman of India with the forehand shots of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
Legendary Indian cricketer Gavaskar Iyer praised the shots, saying, “First of all, let’s talk about the straight drives he has played. Then I will say that even the balls he picked up were in “V”. In this way, the fear of getting out has decreased due to playing shots. Because, the fielder was on the other side of the sitescreen. Despite the grammar of batting that can be used in a T20-like batting, Kal Iyer’s innings seemed to be a unique display.
