In chase, Iyer plays end game
Shreyas Iyer, with a strike rate of 200 but a cool head, helped India to a smart victory in the first T20I of the five-match series against New Zealand at Eden park in Auckland on Friday.
Iyer, who many believe to be the middle-order solution that India have been searching for quite some time, played an unbeaten innings of 58 off 29 balls as India chased down a target of 204 in 19 overs.
The other contributors in the Indian innings were KL Rahul (56 off 27 balls) and captain Virat Kohli (45 off 32 balls).
Iyer, batting at No.4, enjoyed his time at Eden Park.
"It's amazing coming overseas and it's a really good feeling to win the game and being not out.
