IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals’ Shreyas Iyer practices reverse sweep: Delhi Capitals star player- Shreyas Iyer is leaving no stone unturned to make a solid comeback in the upcoming second phase of IPL 2021. Clearly, the right-handed player is emerging really stronger as he aims to make amends after missing the first leg of the tournament due to his shoulder injury. Besides, his regular practice sessions where he is seen smashing big hits, Iyer has amazed fans with the new shot that he was seen practising during DC’s net training session at ICC Academy, Dubai.
In the recent video (reel) shared by Delhi Capitals on Instagram, the 26-year old was seen in his fine form. Unlike his blazing gunshots, Iyer was seen escalating his performance stepwise with the bat. First, he hit grounded shots and drives, smashed some aerial hits and tried some new shots.

The right-handed batsman attempted two reverse sweep aerial shots in successive deliveries. Clearly, Iyer looks to have been inspired by famous T20 player Glenn Maxwell (RCB player) who has reverse sweep shots as his signature stroke. It was exciting to see Iyer try his hands on different strokes with the willow.
Shreyas Iyer, who had reached the Gulf Country on August 14, has had a head start compared to the rest of the team. He started his batting drills under coach Pravin Amre’s supervision in Dubai much early compared to the rest of his teammates.
Besides, time and again Iyer is seen fully engaged in other sports- tennis, football, volleyball and not just in cricket.
