He was supported by Deepak Hooda, Venkatesh Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja from the other end as he lead the Indian batting line-up to victory.

Shreyas Iyer smashed three fifties throughout the three matches of the T20 series against Sri Lanka and became the second Indian to do so.

The record was earlier held by none other than King Kohli, who achieved this feat in a series against West Indies.

Shreyas Iyer has been the key player behind the dominant victories in all of the three matches.

He would also be leading KKR in IPL, so performances like these would also boost the confidence of the Knights’ Camp.
