Harsha Bhogle’s 6-year-old tweet resurfaces after Shreyas Iyer’s impressive Test debut

Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer received his maiden Test cap at Green Park in Kanpur ahead of the first match of the ICC World Test Championship series between the Indian cricket team and the New Zealand cricket team. This series is very important for both teams because 24 points of the World Test Championship are at stake. Neither of the two teams would want to lose the series, considering that they were the Top 2 teams in the previous cycle of the World Test Championship.

In the first edition of the ICC World Test Championship, the Indian cricket team toured New Zealand for a 2-match Test series against the Blackcaps. The home team prevailed 2-0 against Virat Kohli and his men in that series. Now, the Indian cricket team has an opportunity to avenge that loss by defeating the New Zealand cricket team in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship series.

The Indian cricket team’s regular Test captain Virat Kohli decided to take rest and skipped the first match of the home ICC World Test Championship series against the New Zealand cricket team. Hanuma Vihari was added to the India ‘A’ squad for the South Africa ‘A’ series. Thus, the Indian cricket team needed a new middle-order batter, and Shreyas Iyer received his first cap.

Shreyas Iyer grabbed the opportunity with both hands

Shreyas Iyer worked very hard to grab this chance. He ensured that he does not lose it so easily and scored a magnificent century on Test debut. Now, after his impressive performance, a six-year-old tweet of Harsha Bhogle has resurfaced. The popular commentator had written in April 2015 after Shreyas scored a fifty against Mumbai Indians.

“I will now follow Shreyas Iyer’s career closely. There is something about him and he is still so young.”
