Fans on X reacted after Indian batter Shreyas Iyer smashed a staggering ton in the ongoing semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2023. India and New Zealand are locking horns at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and it has been the feast of runs.
Shreyas Iyer was one of the chief architects behind the carnage done by India in the semi-final. The batter came to bat after Shubman Gill (80*) was retired hurt and made sure that the team didn’t miss the absence of Gill.
Shreyas Iyer came out with a positive mindset and played his shots from the start. He made sure that India continued their dominance and kept the run rate over 7. The right-hander at one stage even outclassed Virat Kohli (117), which speaks volumes about his innings.
Shreyas Iyer continued his golden touch as he notched up his second consecutive ton of the ICC World Cup 2023. He slammed a century in just 67 balls, which is the fastest by any batter in the history of the semi-final of the World Cups.
This was Shreyas Iyer’s 4th consecutive fifty-plus score in the tournament. He ended with the knock of 105 runs off 70 balls and had a strike rate of 150. He slammed 4 fours and 8 sixes in his innings and made sure his team reached close to 400.
Shreyas Iyer has been the backbone of the Indian middle order in the ongoing World Cup. He has smashed over 500 runs while batting at 4, which depicts the kind of impact he has made in the tournament for his team. Thanks to his knock, India ended with a total of 397 runs in the high-pressure game.

What a player Shreyas Iyer has come. The team management stood by him and he is repaying them handsomely. This was a fabulous innings. The ability to hit a big one off a good ball is a rare skill.
