NZ vs IND 2020: Twitter erupts after Shreyas Iyer finishes off in style for India

Middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer played a scintillating knock to help India beat New Zealand by six wickets in the first T20I at the Eden Park in Auckland on Friday.

The 25-year-old smashed unbeaten 58 off just 29 balls, with the help of five fours and three sixes. He finished off the 204-run chase with a mighty six, over mid-wicket off Tim Southee.


For the record, this was the first T20I match in the history where five different players scored 50 plus runs – Colin Munro (59), Kane Williamson (51), Ross Taylor (54 not out), KL Rahul (56) and Iyer (58 not out).

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
