“Anyone missing Pujara, Rahane” Twitter reacts as Shreyas Iyer scores yet another crucial fifty in the Bengaluru Test

Team India is currently dominating Sri Lanka in the ongoing day-night Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer has been one of the better performers for India in this game. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted after Shreyas Iyer scores yet another crucial fifty in the Bengaluru Test.


Shreyas Iyer scores yet another crucial fifty

Coming into this Test series, India was embarking on the transition phase in the batting department. Both Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were dropped and hence, Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer got a chance in the XI. While Vihari got a fifty in Mohali, Iyer hit two half-centuries in Bengaluru.

For Iyer, until recently, things were not going in his favour. After coming back from an injury, he hit a roadblock with his form. However, from the New Zealand series where he made his Test debut, Iyer has been in cracking touch. While he has been grabbing all his chances in limited-overs cricket, Iyer is all set to make the No.5 position his own in Tests, thanks to his scintillating displays.


While the other batters struggled on the rank turner in Bengaluru, Iyer made 92 runs in the first innings. He then followed it up with another fine half-century in the second innings. He scored 67 runs in 87 balls and helped India post a massive target for Sri Lanka. Hence, his form has now made the fans forget the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara.

Twitter reacts to Iyer’s performance

Many have been calling for Shreyas Iyer’s inclusion in the Test team for a long time. Now that he has made his debut and is performing well, there were many who appreciated his performance. In the section below, we take a look at a few reactions in this regard:
