Iyer on Thursday received his Test cap from former skipper and legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar and went on to score his maiden fifty. Coming to bat at number 5, Iyer carried his bat on Day 1 and played 75 runs knock that included 7 fours and 2 sixes.

Soon, India T20I skipper Rohit Sharma took to his Twitter account and lauded Iyer’s innings. “Good start to the test career,” Rohit tweeted.

Apart from Rohit Sharma, team India opener and Iyer’s Delhi Capitals’ teammate Shikhar Dhawan also took to his Twitter account to congratulate the debutant. “Congratulations on your Test debut and half-century @ShreyasIyer15 All the hard work you’ve put in has paid off bro,” Dhawan tweeted.

The likes of former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan and cricket commentator Aakash Chopra also lauded Iyer’s knock on their official Twitter account.

Suryakumar Yadav – who was added as a replacement for KL Rahul in the ongoing Test series – too took to his Twitter account to congratulate Shreyas Iyer on a fantastic debut.

At stumps on Day 1, India’s score read 258/4 with Iyer (75*) and Jadeja (50*) currently unbeaten at the crease. Shubman Gill also managed to score 52 but he was dismissed by Jamieson on a peach of a delivery and that ended up castling his stumps.

Earlier, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared the video in which Gavaskar can be seen handing the Test cap to Iyer, while all other players congratulate the India batter.

“A moment to cherish for @ShreyasIyer15 as he receives his #TeamIndia Test cap from Sunil Gavaskar — one of the best to have ever graced the game,” BCCI tweeted. Watch out –
