India vs New Zealand: Shreyas Iyer bats maiden ODI hundred

Shreyas Iyer hit his maiden ODI hundred on Wednesday as he anchored the Indian innings against New Zealand in Hamilton.

Shreyas Iyer has taken 16 ODIs to get to his 1st 3-figure score in international cricket. With 7 fifties to his name, Iyer's previous best was 88 which he got as early as his 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka in 2017.

Shreyas Iyer stepped up once again when the team was in a spot of bother during the 1st ODI of the 3-match series. Iyer joined captain Virat Kohli when the visitors were in a spot of bother after having lost openers Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal in quick succession after a fifty-plus stand.

Shreyas Iyer got to the hundred in just 101 balls as he anchored the Indian innings after losing partner Virat Kohli after a 100-plus stand for the 3rd wicket.
