Shreyas Iyer Biography

Shreyas Iyer (full name is Shreyas Santosh Iyer) is a high-profile Indian sportsman whose sport’s career is primarily associated with cricket.  He was born on 6 December 1994, in Mumbai, India. Shreyas Iyer is well-known for his dominating approach while batting.  Mr. Iyer is an attacking top-order batsman who can deliver brute force to classical shots. Mr Iyer has no wife yet.

He started his cricket journey in his college days, Iyer found a spot in the Under-19 World Cup of 2014. After a lackluster performance on the slow-ish tracks, Iyer was sent to play for the Trent Bridge cricket team in England. With the ball coming on to the bat, Iyer took a full toll and shot to the limelight, scoring 297 runs in 3 innings at a Bradman-Esque average of 99.

The turning point in his career is when in 2015 Delhi Daredevils bought him at the 2015 IPL auction for a whopping INR 2.6 crore, and he repaid the faith with interest. In the 2015–2016 Ranji Trophy, Mr. Iyer scored 1,321 runs during the tournament including four centuries and seven fifties at an average of 73.39, becoming the top scorer of the Ranji season and the second player to score 1,300 runs in a single Ranji Trophy competition. In the 2016–2017 Ranji Trophy, Iyer scored 725 runs including two centuries and two fifties at an average of 42.64. He scored 202 not out off 210 balls, against the visiting Australia team in a 3-Day Practice match in Mumbai, his highest first-class score.
