India’s middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer continued to impress everyone with his dazzling strokeplay as his unbeaten knock of 73 runs off 45 balls powered India to get a complete whitewash over Sri Lanka in the 3rd T20I match on Sunday evening in Dharamsala.
Chasing the target of 180 runs looked way too easy for India, considering the form of their batters has been in of late. However, the skipper perished early tonight and Sanju Samson failed to make it big once again as he threw away his wicket cheaply after scoring only 15 runs.
The Indian side lost their opener early, but Shreyas Iyer, who walked into bat at number 3 held the fort for India alongwith Ravindra Jadeja and ensured to take the side home over the line yet again. Shreyas played an unbeaten knock of 73 runs, smashing 6 fours and 4 sixes. Interestingly, he remained unbeaten throughout the series as he played an instrumental role in India’s win in all three games.
Earlier, he had scored an unbeaten knock of 57(28) runs in 1st T20I, and in the 2nd T20I, he played an unbeaten knock of 74(44). He also became the highest Indian run-scorer in a 3 match bilateral T20i series, with 204 runs to his name.
Meanwhile, social media has been buzzing with reactions from the overjoyed fans to it. Meanwhile, news anchor Vikrant Gupta, who is famous for his cricket-related interesting news and analysis, also took to his Twitter and hailed the performance of Shreyas Iyer in this series.
