shreyas iyer half century in debut: shreyas iyer makes dream debut smashes half century vs new zealand in kanpur test
Being useful to the team in its very first match. Get lost in the fun game. Hard to salvage the crew. Perhaps every player must have seen all this in his dream of his debut match. Shreyas Iyer’s dream debut has happened in Kanpur. Pujara-Rahane once again failed to play a long innings. India’s four wickets had fallen for around 150 runs by the T-session. In such a situation, Iyer, who landed on the fifth number, raised his hand and got his team out of trouble.
nothing less than a century
Shreyas Iyer completed his half-century in 94 balls. In this innings of six fours, there was less aggression and more seriousness. Just as expected from a seasoned batsman in domestic cricket. Shreyas Iyer is the old rice of the red ball, he knows both how to groom and handle the innings. After two sessions of play, his four wickets had fallen for 154 runs. Shreyas Iyer, playing his first Test match at tea break, was on 17 and Ravindra Jadeja was on six. From here both captured the third and last session.
Kyle Jamieson again becomes a threat to India
Tall pacer Kyle Jamieson (3 for 38) again troubled the Indian batsmen. He sent an in-form captain Rahane (35 off 63 balls) to the pavilion after dismissing opener Shubman Gill (52 off 93 balls) in the first over after lunch, who was impressive in the first session. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara (26 off 88 balls) was distracted by veteran pacer Tim Southee (1 for 30). India had lost the wicket of Mayank Agarwal (13 off 28 balls) in the first session.
Iyer 303rd player to debut for India
Interestingly, a player made his debut against New Zealand after 18 years. Earlier in the year 2003, Yuvraj Singh got this good fortune and now in 2021 Shreyas Iyer’s number has come. Till a few months back, he was admitted in the hospital with an injured shoulder. Could not play till the initial season of IPL 2021, but getting the Indian Test cap from there was not so easy for this Mumbai batsman.
