Iyer’s fantastic all-around performances in the second leg of IPL21 attract the selectors towards himself. India is having a match with their arch-rivals Pakistan on 24 October. India needed a fast bowler who can kill the opponent with pace. We have Shami, Burmah but Hardik’s absence in the bowling department may affect the team balance. Harshal is the highest wicket-taker in the IPL21. His death bowling is lethal and slower Yorkers leave the opponent speechless. There is obvious that Patel will surely get a chance.
