“Yes, we will need a few net sessions for sure to get the timing back and also to get the muscle memory working. Will be holding the bat after a while also to have players standing around as you face 140 kph, it will not be easy to come back into that zone as a batsman. I will need a few training sessions as also the mental memory to settle down completely,” Iyer said to IANS.

The right-handed batsman stated that it is not going to be easy for Cricketers but as professional they will have to adjust. Shreyas Iyer also mentioned the fact that Cricket is a religion in India and people would be happy to see it return.
