In the video, Shreyas Iyer was heard saying, “The celebration was nothing much and it just came instinctively. I didn’t decide that I would be celebrating in a certain way. But I want to appreciate the crowd, they came in numbers.”

Meanwhile, Ishan Kishan, who missed out on a century on his home ground, rued the fact and congratulated Iyer for the match-winning ton.

Ishan Kishan remarked, “What do you have to say about you scoring a hundred, meanwhile I missed my hundred at my home ground. At the end of the day, it takes two to the tango. I am really happy that we finished on a good note. And in the next game you will probably get on a century.”

Shreyas Iyer explained, “Talking about the sixes, standing at the nonstriker’s end, it was just pleasing to the eye to see the way you(Kishan) just carried out yourself. I believe when I am positive and look for big shots, I just end up being getting lots of runs. So, I was just planning to get the pressure off and put the pressure on the other team.”

The 24-year-old Ishan Kishan looked like a transformed batter and showed different layers of his batting by switching to beast mode after a responsible start.
