"If you recall, we had inducted Shreyas Iyer (when Virat Kohli was rested) 18 months back into the ODI squad and he has done reasonably well. Unfortunately we couldn't continue with him," Prasad told PTI in an interview.
"Having said that, he has evolved as a player now and he can be the solution to our number 4 slot in both ODIs and T20Is."
How has Iyer fared for India of late
He has played five T20Is recently for India. Against South Africa, Iyer got scores of 16* and 5.
And then against Bangladesh, the right-handed batsman scored 22, 24* and 62.
Prior to that, he had got two solid fifties against West Indies in the ODI series.
Iyer scored 71 and 65 to help India win the series 2-0.
Iyer will now look to do well against West Indies
Iyer will now look to do well in the upcoming limited-overs series against West Indies at home, starting December 6. With the ICC World T20 to be held next year, his prime focus will be to score runs at will and nail down a berth.
