Port of Spain: Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer has been in excellent form in the current tour of the West Indies but he is disappointed at not being able to convert his fifties into hundreds.

Batting at number three in the second ODI, Iyer scored 63 off 71 balls and played a key role in India's thrilling two-wicket win.

He shared a 99-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Sanju Samson. Samson scored 54 runs while later Axar Patel scored an unbeaten 64 to take India to the target.

Iyer, who scored 54 runs in India's three-run win in the first ODI, said he would look to score a century in the next match. Iyer said after the match, "I am happy with the score I scored today but I am unhappy with the way I got out. I should have led the team to the target easily.

I started well but unfortunately lost my wicket. Hopefully, in the next match, I will do better and be able to score a century.

The 27-year-old batsman regrets that he has not been able to score a century so far. He said, "Last time also I had a good catch. Of course, I wouldn't say I lost my wicket easily but I should have converted my good start into a hundred. But I am happy to contribute to the team's victory."

Iyer said, "It is really good that I have got half-centuries in two consecutive matches but I should have converted them into hundreds because I started well.

You don't always get a start like this in international cricket and converting as many fifties into hundreds as possible benefits. I had a good chance today."

Iyer said that he is thoroughly enjoying batting at number three. "It's one of the best places to bat. You may have to go to the crease in difficult situations. If the wicket falls early, you have to get to the crease early and play the role of grooming the innings."

Iyer said, "Also, when there is a good partnership for the first wicket, then you have to carry that forward. I am having a great time batting at number three.” He credited his great form to hard work.

Iyer said, “I am getting these good results because of hard work. I worked hard recently because conditions keep changing and you have to play matches continuously. In such a situation, you need to fit in every way.
