The recently held T20 match between Hyderabad and Delhi witnessed the 22-year-old batsman Shreyas Iyer giving a spectacular performance. In a total of 31 balls, Shreyas managed to score his half century with 5 boundaries and 2 sixes. Although the Delhi team lost the match by 15 runs, Shreyas’ performance was widely lauded.
 
Shreyas began showcasing interest in cricket from a very young age. His father was immensely proud when an 8-year-old Shreyas managed to score a half-century with mere 46 balls. As a result, Shreyas soon began his coaching classes and received immense support from his family.
