Batter Shreyas Iyer on Friday became only the 16th Indian cricketer to hit a century on his Test debut. Iyer achieved the feat during the second day of the ongoing Test between India and New Zealand at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur. With his knock during India’s first innings, Iyer joined Lala Amarnath, Deepak Shodhan, AG Kripal Singh, Abbas Ali Baig, Hanumant Singh, Gundappa Vishwanath, Surender Amarnath, Mohammad Azharuddin, Pravin Amre, Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Prithvi Shaw as the Indian players with a century on Test debut.

He is also the second Indian cricketer — the first being Vishwanath — to have reached the milestone at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur.

After his knock during India’s first innings in Kanpur, several former and current India players took to social media and lauded Iyer for playing a brilliant knock.

Here are some of the reactions:

“Great start to your Test career, @ShreyasIyer15. Nice to see you as a part of #TeamIndia in ‘whites’. Good luck!” legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar captioned an image of Iyer on Twitter.

India’s regular Test captain Virat Kohli, who had opted out of the first Test to manage his workload, also took to Instagram and lauded Iyer for the same.
