Shreyas Iyer Debut Test Ind vs Nz 2021: Shreyas Iyer receives his maiden Test cap from Sunil Gavaskar And Kisses It Watch Video
In India, when a child starts taking cricket seriously, he has only one dream, to be a part of Team India in Tests. Shreyas Iyer’s dream came true on Thursday. He was given the cap of India’s Test Cricketer No. 303 by Sunil Gavaskar himself, one of the greatest batsmen of Test cricket. It was a very emotional moment for Shreyas Iyer. What Gavaskar said, it was subdued in noise but Iyer was feeling very motivated listening to him. The very next moment he took the cap in his hand, looked at it for a while and then kissed.
Shreyas Iyer has done brilliantly in first class cricket to reach here. He averages 52.18 in first class cricket and has a very fast strike rate (81.54). An opportunity came for him in the team when Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant were dropped from the first Test being played in Kanpur.
