Iyer in action against Gujarat Lions [Sportzpics]

Shreyas Iyer has been spoken of as one of the best upcoming talents in Indian cricket and that is hardly a surprise considering his outstanding record in domestic cricket.

On Wednesday, he showed further proof of his ability as he played a match-winning knock for Delhi Daredevils in their two-wicket win over Gujarat Lions.

Iyer scored 97 from just 57 deliveries as Delhi managed to chase down a target of 196. His knock saw him hit as many as 15 fours and two sixes.

The 22-year-old found support from Karun Nair [30 off 15 balls] and Pat Cummins [24 off 13 balls], adding half-century partnerships with both batsmen.

After a disappointing season in 2016, Iyer has come back strongly this IPL – notching up 303 runs at an average of 37.87 and a strike-rate of 144.97.
