Shreyas Iyer has returned to form by scoring a fabulous hundred against Australia in the second ODI of the series in Indore. The Indian middle-order batter scored his first ODI hundred against Australia and made a mark just before the start of a big tournament like the ODI World Cup. Following his recent developments like injuries, it meant a lot to Iyer. After his hundred, Iyer let out a huge roar and showed what it meant for him.
The 28-year-old scored 105 runs in 90 balls, which included 11 fours and 3 sixes. Right from the start of the innings, Iyer was aggressive against both the pacers and the spinners. In the Powerplay overs, Iyer was aggressive against the pacers. Despite the loss of Ruturaj Gaikwad early in the innings, India recovered quickly and headed towards a mammoth first-innings total.
Shreyas played a key role in India having a dominant position in the match. Iyer was aggressive against every bowler. Even in the middle overs, the right-handed batter targeted every bowler. Iyer spared no part of the ground and scored runs heavily in the leg side region. Even on the off-side, Iyer was strong.
Iyer hit some mammoth sixes in the match and helped India maintain a good run rate throughout his stay. The knock of Iyer was important for both him and the Indian team, ahead of the ODI World Cup. The captain of KKR was injured before the 2023 IPL and was ruled out of the tournament. Following it, the middle-order batter remained out of the team for a long time.
Ahead of the Asia Cup 2023, Iyer returned to the squad of the Indian team. But before Iyer could play a match, he sustained another injury and could not play a match in the tournament. Before the series against Australia, Iyer recovered completely. In the first ODI, Iyer was dismissed via an unfortunate runout. The redemption moment has finally come for Iyer with a very good hundred in Indore.
Here’s how the fans reacted to the knock of Shreyas Iyer –
