Delighted for #ShreyasIyer. His talent was never in doubt since we first saw him at that 2014 U19 World Cup. This is proof now that he has the temperament to do it at this level. Keeps the game moving, isn't afraid to play the big shots. Good modern player.

A dream test debut for #ShreyasIyer with a century in the first match. A really good knock !
P.s. – I think he should have been retained as captain of DC.
