Shreyas Iyer's brilliant knock under pressure

In the third ODI, Iyer came out when India were at a spot of bother at 91 for 3 in the 13th over while chasing a revised target of 255 from 35 overs. His counter-attacking 65 from 41 balls took the pressure off Kohli, who remained not out on 114, and changed the complexion of the game.

"I am very happy. I want to come out to bat in this kind of tough situation when everybody in the dressing room is nervous. I love it because the (complexion of the) match can change and anything can happen in the team position," Iyer told Chahal in an interview after the third ODI last week.
