Don't mind batting at any number says Shreyas Iyer

New Delhi, Oct 31- Promising batsman Shreyas Iyer on Tuesday said he is open to bat at any position in case he makes his India debut in the first of the three-match T20 International series against New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla here on Wednesday.

The Mumbai youngster has been on the fringe of Indian cricket team for long now. He has been named in the Test, ODI and T20Is squads on various tours but could never find a place in the playing XI.

"Obviously I am hoping that if I am selected (in the squad) then I will play as well. We have three matches and if I play even one then it is a good feeling," Iyer told reporters at the pre-match press conference here.

"I am very flexible and I don't mind batting at any number. Even in the IPL I was shuffled from number four to number three and it didn't really matter because I am comfortable playing in any position. If I play the game, I'll bat at any number and will give my best.

Iyer further said he was yet to attend any of the team meetings yet and even if he isn't included in the playing XI he will continue to put his effort.

"I have not attended the team meeting yet. I am not thinking about playing. Even if I am sitting out, I will put effort. In the end, the team should win," he said.
