In the ongoing 1st Test match between India and New Zealand in Kanpur, it’s Shreyas Iyer who has hogged all the limelight by playing a stellar knock on his debut for the national side in the whites. The right-handed batsman showed nerves of steel to play some aggressive cricket at Green Park as he went on to hit a spectacular century on his Test debut.

Mumbai trio shows dance moves on famous Bollywood song
Team India’s T20I captain posted a hilarious video on Instagram, where he can be seen dancing on the famous Bollywood song ‘Koi Sehri Babu Dil Lehri Babu’ alongside Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur. Notably, the trio plays their domestic cricket for Mumbai which would have been one of the main reasons for Hitman to post that video celebrating the success of one of them.
“Well done @shreyas41 making all the right moves 🕺,” Hitman captioned the Instagram post. Iyer certainly made all the right moves in Kanpur as he played a brilliant knock of 105 runs in 171 deliveries, smashing 13 boundaries and 2 sixes.
