IND vs NZ 2021, 1st Test: Wasim Jaffer Trolls Himself After Shreyas Iyer’s Ton On Test Debut

Wasim Jaffer-Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer became the 10th Indian batsman to score a Test ton in his maiden Test on home soil. He became the 16th Indian cricketer overall to achieve the feat. Iyer started day 2 on an unbeaten 75 and batted with intent to get to his maiden Test ton.

Meanwhile, Wasim Jaffer, former Indian batsman has trolled himself after Iyer reached his maiden Test ton. He added a crucial 113-run stand with Ravindra Jadeja (50) that helped India to get to 345 in their first innings.

Taking to his Twitter account he posted a picture with the caption “Ye troll humne khud ko kiya hai #INDvNZ #Iyer”.

Mumbai cricketers like Pravin Amre, Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw and now Iyer started their Test careers with a ton in their Test debut. Jaffer, who made his Test debut against South Africa in 2000 had to digest two back to back failures in his first Test.

It was Shreyas Iyer who held the Indian innings together stitching important partnerships with Ajinkya Rahane (35) and then with Jadeja. The talented youngster showcased exemplary batsmanship against a formidable Kiwi bowling attack to steady the ship for his side.

Iyer was shortly dismissed after getting to his three-figure score by Tim Southee who took a fifer in the first innings. He became the first overseas bowler to take a fifer in Kanpur after 1980. Apart from Southee, Kyle Jamieson picked three and Ajaz Patel picked a couple of wickets.

The Kiwis have started steadily after bowling India out for 345. Openers Will Young (46*) and Tom Latham (23*) have added 72 runs in 26 overs before the tea break on day 2.
