Shreyas Iyer might not have much game time with the bat in the T20I series against New Zealand. However, the Indian batsman was on the top of his game while showing some magic tricks after India’s won the T20I series against New Zealand on Sunday. Iyer is also a part of the Indian Test squad for the two-Tests against New Zealand ands might well make his debut.
Meanwhile, in a video shared by BCCI’s Twitter handle, Shreyas Iyer is seen showing up his magic tricks to Mohammed Siraj. He asks Mohammed Siraj to pick a card from the deck – which is a 4 of spades – and hold it in between his palms after showing it to everyone.
Iyer then picks another card from the deck and rubs in on Siraj’s palms. The pacer is taken aback when he opens the card that he rubbed on his palms. It was actually not the 4 of spades but the Joker that iyer picked later.
Weaving some magic 🪄 with a deck of cards & blowing everyone's minds 😯

Much to his surprise, he asked Iyer at the end of the video, “Kaise Hua Yaar” as he thrusted the card in disbelief. The Indian team is in a jovial mood after the team’s T20I series win. Iyer scored 30 runs from the two innings that he batted in the series.
