After being set a target of 204, Rahul and Kohli set the tone early for India, but their dismissals in quick succession put the victory in jeopardy. However, Shreyas Iyer then struck a stunning 29-ball 58 to guide the team home. The Twitterati lavished praise on the young gun for his stunning knock.
What a classy player he is!
Shreyas Iyer has solved the middle of the middle order problem of India.— Keh Ke Peheno (@coolfunnytshirt) January 24, 2020
Shreyas Iyer is the next big thing in Indian Cricket. Or wait, is he already big?
The last six from Iyer was lit AF!🔥
Shreyas Iyer finishes off in style, great game of cricket!! KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and then Shreyas Iyer batted beautifully. Both Rahul and Iyer secured a fifty each! India leads the 5 match series with 1-0.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) January 24, 2020
Hahaha! That's like my boy.
A mixture of pure class and pure MASS!
