Harsha Bhogle asked Shreyas Iyer what he said to Harshit Rana before he bowled the final over. Shreyas Iyer revealed he said,

“Right from the 17th over, had butterflies in my stomach. Felt anything could happen in the last over. They needed 13 runs, and we didn’t have the most experienced bowler. But I had the belief in him, and I told him to back himself, and it doesn’t matter what happens. He was a bit nervous coming in, and I just looked him in the eye and told him ‘this is your moment, buddy.’ I told him to back himself, and it doesn’t matter what happens in the game.”


A Thrilling Finish
